Haverhill, a town filled with drinking and misogyny. A perfect example is this IPA, which is more substantial than its 50 BUs and 5%denotes. Stanky under-ripe grapefruit and resin abounds - clearly lots of chinook. Usual orange hazy look.d Bluntly bitter rather than hoppy, and although there is some malt contrast, there beer is light enough that it feels overmatched. Anyway, my lips long ago turned into my wallet so the deeper meaning of this beer is lost on me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep yellow-orange brew. Good carbonation. Sharp, spicy aroma. Flavor is of citrus and spice. Long, long, bittering finish. I recently read Dann Paquette (now of Pretty Things) developed this recipie years ago. I am not surprised, itís very well made and tasty. Seems a lot more than 50 IBUs.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. I love their labels. The pour is copper-amber with a quick burst of white head in a slight haze. The aroma really has a solid balance of sweet malts and earthy, piney hops. The body tends to be medium. The hop bite is powerful in the taste to the point that it might be too bitter. It does what it advertises.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Striking label and a pretty striking brew. From the description I expected this to be another lopsided unbalanced "big" IPA with a bitter aftertaste but actually itís got a nice balance of fruity and resiny hops, a sort of dry finish that keeps you interested in another sip. A good malt backbone and itís good looking in the glass. So cheers!

Sample. Very bitter flavor that overpowered the malt and hop aroma. Not my favorite style of IPA.
