Pale yellow and clean, clean, clean. Not the nose I expected but this is a top five IPA in my book. Citrus shows perfect and finish is fantastic. Best Maine Beer Co. in my opinion. Best in Maine period!

You hear a lot about lunch but this guys not trailing too far behind and is typically more available though allocations have gotten tighter of late. Grassy and herbaceous with light citrus notes dancing in the background. Perfectly carbonated and stupid easy to drink, can't believe this one clocks in at 7%.
Took me years to bite on these guys with the plain label and high price point but man is it worth it, great beer.

Another very solid offering from Maine Beer Co. This is my next favorite so far just under Lunch. Color is pale yellow with some cloudiness. Taste is light, crisp, with a perfect amount of character. A great beer to drink on hot days.

This is a spectacular IPA. Bottled 7/14/15. Tasted fresh and looked great. This was a surprise get and an even bigger surprise taste. As good as Lunch, I think. Pricey for sure, but worth it.

Pours golden and clear, with decent carbonation and a two finger head. Smells citrusy, floral, and fruity. Taste is balanced and crisp. Citrus and hops shining through. Highly drinkable with a peppery finish. Really great showing from Maine Beer Company.. this beer deserves all the credit.

Mouth feel is good but not as silky as i would like
Taste is orange, grapefruit and some tropical flavor
mouth feel is a little week was expecting a little more but still awesome.

Overall it is a great beer actually just as good as lunch imo would def drink again.

Snagged a bottle in Swampscott. Don't know what it is about Maine BrewCo, but for some reason I never balk at spending too much on one of their 16.9 oz bottles. Maybe because they're all so good? I dunno.

Pours very pale and hazy, like a wheat. Smells dry and a little floral. Not nearly as heavily hopped as Lunch or Mo, but still interesting enough.

Tastes okay, but I don't know what they were going for. It's *very* light up front, almost seltzery, with floral hops drippling in near the middle. Ends light and crisp, with tangy fruit hops balanced quite well against the whisper thin malt.

Overall, it's pretty good. Hard to make such a light and balanced beer with an ABV this high. But it's still a bit of a let down for its price point.

500 ml bottle, 6/9/15, poured into a snifter

A- A slightly hazy golden color with a three finger white head.

S- Citrus, tropical fruits, hints of mango, pine, hint of wet grass, some wheat.

T- Citrus, grapefruit, some tropical fruits, pine, slightly dank, breads malts some wheat, nice balance.

M- Smooth, crisp, light to medium body.

O- A nicely done IPA, just a little over priced. Worth trying, same level of quality that I have experienced with the other beers I've tried from MBC.

A clear pale yellow body showing tons of carbonation holds a thick fluffy white head. The nose is awesome - fresh citrus hops with a lingering sweetness can be smelled from 3 feet away. Flavors of potent, but perfectly balanced citrus hops ride on just a small amount of cracker sweeteness. The feel is bright and vibrant, given away by the visible carbonation, with a clean finish.

Light color, lighter than Lunch, hazy. Big head with small bubbles sticks around.

Smells like tropical fruits, mostly mango.

The taste is fairly mild, not as bitter as Lunch. More like a slightly hoppier MO. The malts aren't sweet, kind of saltine-like. Bitter piney finish.

Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Perfect for a warm summer day.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottling date of 05/12/15

Appearance - Pours hazy and golden yellow in color with a white, near 2 finger head. Great retention, then an ever-present, relatively thick layer of suds dominates the surface. Thin, broken sheets of lace coat the glass with good stick.

Smell - Heavy mango with touches of citrus and pineapple zing. Light, crackery undertone.

Taste - Lighter in flavor than the aroma leads on. Mild orange and mango with a light peppery spice. Clean, bready malt undertone. Finishes with a trace of citrus pith bitterness... and a hint of banana peel?

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with soft, bubbly carbonation. Slick, silky texture leads to a wonderful drinking experience.

Overall - Light, smooth and clean IPA. Similar to their MO, but not quite as delicious, IMO. Stupid drinkable though. Get it and enjoy.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a 2 finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both excellent. Nice, fresh, citrus, hoppy, resin aroma. Grapefruit primarily. Very nice. Very nice, fresh, piney grapefruit taste. Great malt to hop transition. Light bodied and refreshing. Mild carbonation. Reminds me of Yellow Rose here in Texas. I have to thank my family for bringing this back down to me from Maine.

Happy to get my hands on this today in Albany NY. On par or better than Lunch. Some tropical notes. Bitterness is not over the top but it has a strong bite. Beautiful cloudy appearance like a wit beer which makes it very appealing. Really enjoyable

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Drank from a 1 pint .9 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Portland, ME
Served in a pint glass

Impressive appearance. The beer poured a super pale and nearly crystal clear golden color. An inch tall, fluffy, creamy, bright white crown topped the liquid. The head slowly dropped to a lasting cap of froth. Streaky lacing coated the glass.

The nose was crisp, bright and citrusy. Hoppy but not super aromatic for the style. Grapefruit was most noticeable. Lemony and slightly grassy. The intensity of the aroma seemed more akin to your average pale ale than an IPA. The nose did however became a bit stronger and slightly sweeter with time. A touch of tropical fruitiness appeared as well. Mango was most detectible.

The flavor profile was hoppy, bitter and completely unbalanced. Ultra crisp and dry. White grapefruit dominated. Very rind-like. Tart, lemony notes also came through strong. The snappy, lingering finish was uber dry, pithy and bitter and contained loads of pine needles and grapefruit rind.

The mouthfeel was very light and highly effervescent. Definitely quite thin for the style and somewhat over carbonated. As the beer sat, the carbonation settled a bit and the beer turned slightly softer on the palate.

While it seems that most New England/Maine-style IPAs are rich and fruity with a robust yet rounded flavor profile, Another One is a shockingly dry, pithy and bitter hop bomb in the vein of many old school, West Coast-style pale ales and IPAs. Although some might enjoy this, in my opinion it lacks both depth and balance.

Plenty of the Maine Co. beers around DC, but this was the first time I saw Another One here. Grabbed it today--bottle has a 4-7-15 date on it, so it's pretty fresh. A tad of a bitter bite on the end, but this pretty much lives up to the hype of the Maine IPAs.

Honey colored body with a large foamy, white head. Body has a slight haze to it, but light comes through. Aroma is dank, citrusy, simcoe comes through a lot, with a dash of herb. A lot more citrus comes through in the flavor than the nose. Resiny, citrusy, hoppy and tasty. Mouthfeel is crisp, light, with a lingering hoppy taste. Overall and nice IPA.

Had this beer on tap on 4/9/15
A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with a nice, thick and foamy white head.
S: Smells phenomenal…mango, peach, pineapple…very citrusy and tropical. Some notes of pine and raisins.
T: I feel a bit disappointed as i've had it in both tap and on bottle. The taste doesn't follow the smell. It's very dull in taste and perhaps has a slight hint of citrus with a tad bit of hop bitterness.
M: Very watery with mild carbonation.
O: The smell is great, but the taste didn't do it for me. It was a big let down as i've heard about all of the glowing reviews it has received.

Bottle dated 3/10/15, poured a hazy yellow, one finger head. Smell mixed bright citrus and a mild pine/earthiness. Taste followed suit, slight bitterness, slight dankness, really delicious. MBC is a favorite and this is among their best.

A little lighter and less cloudy than I usually like, but what an easy-drinking beer. It is clean, flavorful and delicious. Marketing may not get its own category, but the bottle and label are so appealing that the drinking experience truly begins when you are lucky enough to spot a (fresh) Maine Beer Company product on the shelf.

A truly great IPA. Much less aggressive than comparable 7% versions like Racer 5, Two Hearted, etc. Great smells of citrus, almost light on body compared to heavier competition, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. This is dangerously drinkable at 7%. This is also the kind of IPA that non-hop fans could love. If more readily available, this would arguably become my regular IPA. Well done.

MBC Another One
.5L, dated 2.17.15

Pours a hazy, glowing orange, few small floaties. Wispy head laces well, retention not the greatest. (3)

Aroma is full of fruity and floral hops, with tropical notes of passion fruit, guava, stone fruits. (4.5)

Flavor is refreshing and hoppy. More citrus coming through, in addition to tropical fruits mentioned above. Restrained bitterness, grainy malt. No real caramel malt flavor, very dry and quenching. Does not drink like 7%abv, more like a pale ale. Unfiltered yeast character of proofing dough, light ester, and powdery candy. Mouthfeel is well-carbonated, but very light and almost seltzer-like on the palate. (4, 3)

Like a more tropical, even lighter version of Lunch. A very nice IPA, but could use a bit more body. (4.25)

Phenomenal all around. I havn't had a beer from MBC that missed the mark and this one continues the trend. Well balanced cereal grain taste along with the well balanced hop profile.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy amber color with a thin white head that lingered. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Very strong citrus/hops

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of string bitter hops with a hint of sweeter citrus notes.

Overall: One of the best IPAs I have had!

The second pale ale I've had from Maine that exceeds Lunch, the first being MO. Granted this is an IPA and as such is much more comparable to Lunch than MO is. Really hard to say anything bad about Maine Brewing, they definitely have their act together. The best way to experience their ales is side by side, where I feel that you will get a strong impression of the nuances of each.

A personal favorite, this one is worth it every time. Hazy orange with a big three finger fluffy tan head with awe inspiring retention that leaves pretty lacing all over the glass. Big juicy tropical notes with some delightful dank floral stuff. Sweet citrus a la tangerines and ripe oranges. Aftertaste is delightful. Med to light body, smooth swallow, bone dry finish that leaves that delightful juicy aftertaste.

Another beautifully done ipa from mbc; I honestly like it a bit better than lunch. Either way, this beer is worth looking out for.
