COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we expanded our brewery the stress was something to say the least. I ran out of creative juice for a minute so decided another for inspiration. Another One IPA and Weez use the same hops but different malts. The result- Another One is very light in color, and Weez is very dark. Each, however, allow the hops to shine out front.

Clear hay blonde wtih a very light haze, topped by a generous white head. Fruit salad aromas, just awsome tropicality to this nose! Low to medium carbonation, clean, smooth creamy mouthfeel with medium bitterness, a bit chalky in mid palate, ending on some sweet citrus notes. I would say more complex than Lunch, a bit fuller in body and overall complexity. Long fruity finish with a great mix of tropical fruits and citrus. Love it. Bottle, fresh, 2 days-old.

I poured a 500ml bottle into a tulip glass. It was bottled on 6/24/14 and cost $7.99 ($0.47 per ounce).

Appearance: Lemon-skin yellow hue over a very hazy body, though carbonation can be seen streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Pours to a large, gleaming white, fluffy head with leaves thick rings of lacing around the glass and maintains a consistent layer on top of the beer.

Smell: The epitome of the “New England IPA” style with a pungent nose of tropical fruit and herbal/earthy characteristics. Very enticing.

Taste: We here in the Northeast have been lucky to get so many great IPAs coming out of the New England states in the last few years. There’s a commonality to them as far as aroma and tastes goes, though the one thing they have in common is they’re delicious beers. Maine Beer Company’s “Another One” lives up to its name: another one in a long line of great IPAs. Nothing wrong with that.

This beer definitely follows the path blazed by Heady Topper and many brews of the style. There’s a light maltiness with notes of honey, but otherwise the hops dominate. A delectable delivery of tropical and stone fruit right off the rip: pineapple, mango, passion fruit, pomegranate, etc. Not citrusy per se, though. There’s an underlying spiciness which becomes very apparent on the second half. Notes of basil, pesto or oregano can be found here. It’s definitely bitter, but not aggressively so. Just the right amount of IBUs to wow the palate without ruining it. My only complaint would be the maltiness is just a tad underplayed, but it’s still strong enough to stand up to the hops.

Drinkability: What makes great beers great aside from their taste is when they’re actually highly drinkable. At 7% ABV, “Another One” isn’t quite a behemoth, though it’s far from a session beer. The mouthfeel is rather soft with an almost creamy-like texture, with consistent crispness throughout. Refreshing for a moment, though there’s a slightly starchy aftertaste, but the hops aren’t saturating or obnoxious in their stay. It’s very tempting to throw back several pints of these.

I’ve never met a bder from this brewer that wasnt solid. This is no exception. Solid citrus hop from start to finish. Malts are secondary as hops dominate but do no endzone dance. Sticky lacing on muted gold body.

Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of catty resinous citrus hops, hint of grapefruit and vanilla, peach and mango. Taste follows, hop forward but very light on the bitterness, clean and easy. Good carbonation, awesome stuff.

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Citric and grassy hops, some dank piney notes, medium bitterness, and a light pale malty base. Pretty good.

ametras (328) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
500ml bottle. Cloudy golden yellow with a frothy white head. Flavors are bread, honey, peach, pineapple and grapefruit with resinous and floral notes. Very bright and fresh aroma. Medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Mouthfeel could have been drier, but still, this is a top shelf IPA.

Bottle pour, clear pale gold color, half inch thick foamy white head, aroma of dank pine needles and pineapple, taste is crisp hops and mild citrus-- lemon, hint of vanilla,,, very light bitterness and slight malt backbone... clean finish, really refreshing. As good as LUNCH and slightly different from MO... Another winner from MBC!
