COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our exceptional West Coast-Influenced India Pale Ale is very likely the only India Pale Ale of its kind brewed in Massachusetts. We add more hops to this beer than any other beer we brew. More than 3.5 pounds per barrel! We add hops in the mash, throughout the 90 minute boil, during the whirlpool, in the hopback during the cooling process. Once fermentation is complete, we add 1.5 pounds per barrel straight into the conditioning tank. All these additions bring quite an amazing hop experience. This beer is not just a bitter beer, but a well-balanced hop focused, and skillfully designed piece of art. demand saTisfacTion!

When I first tried this beer much more of the hop profile was in the flavor zone. The last few batches have been mostly bitter, flavorless and one dimensional. I’d like to see this recipe return to its roots.

This beer is wicked happy and the light pour was surprising with the tangerine aroma. The taste was hoppy which blocked some of the booziness

keg at brewery, 3 june 2014 (part of taster flight). it’s a hop bomb all right. IBUs through the roof in the modern American style. but balanced with a nice sweetness that’s not too cloying and crucially not too malty! grapefruit, papaya dominate with hints of lemon and honey? not a lot of body for the ABV. a very good entry into the range of xxxtreme IPAs.

Damico (2585) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours clearer tangerine with a decent beige head. Aroma brings sweet pleasant citrus hops. Flavor is similar to the nose bringing smooth and sweet orange and tangerine flavored hops with and zesty earthy green profile and lingering juicy ending on the tongue.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Keg at the brewpub - Amherst. Pours clear gold with a creamy cap. Dried lemon in the nose, some flowers. Medium sweet flavor with grassy and floral bitterness, dried pale malts, dandelion. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Resinous to finish, more grass and pale pine, grapefruit and lemon rind. Nice.

On draft at the restaurant. Included in part of a sampler. All the beers tasted were OK with no off flavors or big misses but nothing really great either.

johnnnniee (2316) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at the brew pub. Comes to the table a clear light gold color with a decent sized off white head. Smells of resinous pine and bits of citric fruit. Very light bready malt almost pokes through. The flavor is spicy resinous dank hop with a huge pithy grapefruit bite. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sharp resinous bitter mouthfeel. Decent beer, but the hops come off a bit harsh at times.
