COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop lover’s delight, this American India Pale Ale is brewed with over 1.5 lbs. of hops per barrel. As with all IPAs, this beer is higher in alcohol, hop aroma and bitterness than regular pale ales, and you don’t have to sail to India to enjoy it.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2008
From the Fenway location - Poured a golden amber in color with a small white head that faded to a rim around the glass. Aroma was fairly strong of citrus and pine hops. Flavor was nice and hoppy with a medium bitterness. Some malty sweetness on the finish. Clean, drinkable... I liked it!

Pretty average IPA with decent lacing and hoppiness. There are better offerings at Beer Works to try.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2007
On tap at both Boston locations. Pours a yellow golden with a small white head. Nose is of citrus and spruce. Sprucey hop flavor that really gets old after you’ve had 3+ pints of this stuff.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Sampled both regular and cask at Fenway location. Cask is significantly smoother, better looking, and better tasting. Rating reflects cask version. Medium yellow beer with a good white head. smells like jasmine tea and grass. Cask version is mellow with a smooth palate. Beer is very hopped with a grassy hop kick of a finish. nicely done. aroma was barely detectable at first, hops bloomed as beer warmed.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 got the cask conditioned. served lukewarm, bittery taste. cloudy, tons of yeast and a fruit aroma present over the hops.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2007
This pours copper with a medium head. It has th classic citrus notes forn the hops but on the mouthfeel you get a sweeter than overly bitter flavor. It finishes balanced with light notes of bitterness.

Sample from cask at the brewpub in Canal street. Pours hazy orange with almost no head. Citric fruity and floral aroma with more decernable maltiness. Flavour is fruity hops with a soft caramel malt base. Goes into a good bitterness in the finish. More malty than the tap version, still with a good bitterness.

Sample from tap at the brewpub in Canal street. Pours orange clear with a creamy off-white head. Citric fruity and floral aroma. Flavour is fresh fruity hops with a soft malt base. Goes into a good bitterness in the finish. Not as strong hoppy as described in the menu. Very nice on a hot day.
