The Big Elm of Sheffield was a meeting place for celebrating the past, planning for the future and enjoying good company. Our hand crafted IPA is generously hopped, subtley assertive and decidedly balanced. We hope it reminds you to take the time to gather with friends and share a delicious beverage.

Bottle shared at RBWG, poured an orangish color with aromas of citrus, malt, pine and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are the same light pine and citrus hops, light bitter aftertaste, nice beer overall.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Can. I imagine it pours golden - amber with a decent white head, but who knows. The nose is fresh, juicy, lemon sherbet, grassy, lemonade and limeade. The taste is crisp, bitter, piney varnish, lemon sherbet, sweet lime, earth, pepper and some alcohol boost with a dry finish. Pretty alright IPA.

Can. Mission, Pittsfield, MA. APPEARANCE - golden color, clear but not fully see through. Nice foamy white head at the start. NOSE - slight pine scents with a hint of floralness. FLAVOR - well balanced pine flavors, come out at the beginning and linger Ling after the sip.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is floral hop and pine. Medium mouth, grassy hop, light citrus, lingering bitterness, very good.

BroSpud (1907) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2014
12oz can. Pours a hazy golden amber with a white head and decent lacing. Nice hop aroma. Notes of citrus and soap. Fairly average IPA but a drinkable one.

mkgrenwel (602) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Slightly hazy golden pour. Thinnish white head recedes quickly. Nice aroma of hops and oranges. Slightly floral and herbal. Slightly medicinal. Bitterness isn’t super strong but it is astringent. Yet, there’s a nice hop character in there and solid balance. Pretty drinkable, especially out of the can.

bbbeer (613) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2013
Slightly hazy orange, small off white head. Aroma pine and citrus hops, malt. Medium body. Flavor is pine-like hops, just off dry, fairly malty without being particularly sweet. The bitterness is fairly subtle for an IPA but overall well balanced and enjoyable.
