Maine Beer Company Another One

Posted: December 27, 2015 in American IPA, Maine Beer Company, Reviews

We’re watching a show called “Flipping Virgins” and they just showed a house that has a pink kitchen and a pink master bedroom. Why would anyone paint their rooms that color? Anyways, let’s talk about this beer from Maine Beer Company.

ABV: 7%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Sometimes when we’re brainstorming, another cold one helps the ideas flow. Like the time we said, ‘Hey, let’s take this awesome hop blend and switch up the malts.’ That insight explains the goodness that is Another One, the lighter side of Weez (both beers use a nearly identical kettle and dry hopping schedule). An intensely hoppy American IPA with a clean malt palate, it leaves little but hoppy resins on the tongue; a dry, crisp finish; and a sense that anything’s possible.”

Random: The simplicity of Maine Beer Company’s labels make them stand out on shelves.

This beer poured with a three finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left generous lacing on the IPA glass. The body was a light, lemon-yellow color which was very cloudy. As a result, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose was fragrant with light citrus that was quickly overtaken by grass and tropical fruits (specifically mango). After a few sniffs, tangerine was also a major scent. The taste had even more tropical fruit notes. Mango and papaya came through with tangerine. It then went into a really authentic peach note. Grass and fresh pine were the next notes on the flavor profile. The alcohol was insanely hidden. It had a thick body with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy with the remnants of the fresh pine. This was $6.49 for the bottle, which broke down to $.41 per ounce, which is a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. This beer was ridiculously good and one that should be at the top of anyone’s list to seek out.

Untappd Rating: 5.0/5.0
