Misty Mountain is a great example of the American-style India Pale Ale synonymous with Craft Beer. Originally brewed for sailors on shipping routes between England and India, British IPAs are known for their strong hop bitterness, which were added as a preservative for the long voyage. The American adaptation is decidedly stronger and offers a more robust hop bite. Back East IPA is no exception. This assertively hopped beer has a great hoppy aroma, crisp hop bite, and smooth medium body.

Great head retention and cool color for an IPA, but sadly, the front of the mouth taste is lacking and the malt overpowers the hops, and not in the best way. Again, though, for a new brewery, they are off in the right direction. Hopefully they improve on this. Its drinkable but not a favorite.

Poured from can into a tulip: Pours golden with a one finger head. Aroma of resin, slightly sweet from the malts, and a little floral. Flavor is very thin, hop bite is minimal and so is the flavor. Thin body, not a lot going on with this beer, but not offensive either.

blklab2007 (2059) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Can poured a copper amber color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has mild hops, some resins, and bits of citrus. Mouth feel is medium with good carbonation. Flavor has nice hops, resins, a fair bit of supporting malt, a bit of bitterness, and citrus.

Can from a six pack purchased at local stop and shop (supermarket). Smells, pours and tastes like a Bud with a tiny bit more hops. Really unimpressive.

Draft at Willimantic. Clear bright golden yellow color, thick white head. Aroma of citrus and straw. Taste is lemony bread dough. Nice.

BeerandBlues2 (10442) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Tap at Willimantic. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and resin hops, pear esters and honey malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light sweet malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

jkwood04 (4356) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of floral, piney, and lightly citrusy hops, some caramel and pale malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a good amount of bitter hops. Average texture. A standard IPA.

boto (1912) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Growler from Brewery: This one pours a fairly clear coppery color. There was a small off white head that left some lacing. Nice hop nose. Pine and citrus dominate. The taste is very good. It has a good hop bite. Mainly citrus and pine flavors, with a decent malt body behind it. Nicely balanced.

MaBeer1972 (1390) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Six pack of cans. Pours out a murky golden color. Bready-spice aromas. Flavor is muddled and bitter, but not very good at all. Reminds me of the crap everyone was making about 12 years ago. This does nothing for me. A waste of my hard-earned cash.

beerfest5 (1199) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 21, 2014
Had my hopes up for this one, brewery is right down the road. English style IPA that doesn’t deliver on the promise of being a heavily hopped beer. This is a miss.
