Pours a three-finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is grapefruit hops, flavor is an improvement over the 2009 brewing, some grapefruit less bitterness, more caramel, higher ABV helps (7.5 vs 8.5%). $6.45 for a 22oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH

Bottle thanks to mar. The look is clear, golden in color. The smell is pine, citrus, fruits, and hops. The taste is hops, pine, citrus, and fruits.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bomber poured into a pint glass. Thick opaque yellow appearance. Big fluffy white head. Minimal scent of floral hops. Flavor of citrus, malt is evident. Finishes with pine and bitterness. Expected a bit of sweetness, not present at all. Larry is a serious, hoppy dude.

Bottle. Poured a medium and hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine and a big amount floral hops. Tastes of floral hops, citrus, some toastiness, grass, and light caramel. I really enjoyed this one.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2012
22 oz bottle into a goblet. Pours golden hay with a nice little white foam that fades to a film with medium lacing. Aroma is big and citrusy with a tinge of bubblegum. Taste is orange and bubblegum at first with a bit of grapefruit then finishes with pine and bitterness. Really liking this. Very well balanced, manages to be big and hoppy without being overly sweet.

radarsock (1105) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Took a chance on this one. Purchased from Learyís for exactly $6. Pours a nice copper orange with a fluffy white head two fingers in length. Smells predictably of sweet malt, pine and grassy hops, and yeast. Even with my nose stuffed up this badly I can still smell its maltiness. Yeah, this oneís definitely a malty DIPA. Starts with notes of orange peel, malt, vanilla, pine needles and booze. From there itís hinting at plastic, onions and peanuts. Ends somewhat sour. Unremarkable but drinkable nonetheless. Wachusett has a reputation for that.

Poured from a bomber into my Founders snifter. Got this guy as an extra in a trade (Thanks Gushue!). Best by: September 2011 A: Pours a wonderful amber with lighter hued orange edges. Nice 1 finger pure white head with not very much retention, even with a vigorous pour. The ripple-effect from the lace was also very nice on the drinkís way down. S: The smell is not as pungent as I would like, but Iím still picking up hints of grapefruit and some pine-like hops. T: The light bitter fruit hits you up front then fades back down to mellow oaky bitterness. The finish is a little less than stellar with sort of a woody and light pine finish. M: Medium to light bodied with an oily finish that leads to semi-bland finish. The palate is struggling to cling to some semblance of taste, but itís failing. O: While the brew was very refreshing and an excellent kick start Iím afraid it fell a little flat at the end. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-18-2011

Huhzubendah (2809) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2012
This bottle kicked off the tasting at Bradís on Saturday. Larry pours dark yellow, is pretty hazy, has a decent sized head and good lacing. Citrus and floral aromas smell very fresh and inviting. The beer is slightly sweet, with nice tart citrus fruits and some herbal/floral notes. The alcohol is hidden very well and this beer is nice and easy to drink. Overall, a very solid brew, and a good example of the style.

Orange pour. Nose is strong fruity hops, some floral and some citrus. Nose has evident rich caramel and bread malts. Flavor is bitter and dry but full on the palate. Fruity and floral hops come through again and malts are a little more roasted caramels than in the aroma. Pretty nice beer overall.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grassy with some grapefruit citrus and pine; light floral notes. The flavor has toasted bread, biscuit, lemon zest, citrus, grass and pine needles. The resiny character grows. The finish is clean and dry with moderate bitterness.
