COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (567) - Cambridge, 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 isnít super strong but it is astringent. Yet, thereís a nice hop character in there and solid balance. Pretty drinkable, especially out of the can.

ReggieDunlap (3052) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
pours a clear light amber with a thick off white head...really nice lacing and retention. aroma has nice notes of melon and citrus...a touch of toasty malt. flavor has an earthy bitterness with light citrus and resinous pine...a hint of toastiness...balanced. mouthveel is medium and the finish is dry and earthy/bitter lingering to resinous pine. tasty and fairly balanced IPA...very sessionable flavor-wise.

bbbeer (586) - 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.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle shared at the Grand Tasting RBWG. Mostly clear orange/amber with a white head. Floral hops and malt aroma. Flavor runs to the bitter side from the start to the finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle shared by Leighton at RBWG. I did not care for this beer apparently. My only notes are: light water, malt, sweet malt, grain, little bitter. My guess is that it didnít really stand up to the other awesome pale ales we were having this weekend.

Cloudy med gold color. Malty caramel aroma. Malty, no strong hop flavor for a hophead like me. Good taste, but fair ipa...
