COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LARRY was originally brewed this summer for the Publick House’s Hop Head Throwdown. David -- owner of the Publick House -- It was such a success in growlers here and at the Publick House, that we brewed another batch to go to speciality accounts. We’ll be putting it in 22’s in March 85 IBUs 5-hops (Simcoe, Magnum, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook)

This bottle kicked off the tasting at Brad’s 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.

Clear golden with thin white head. Pretty big hop aroma, citrus grapefruit and something else maybe tangerine or mandarin. Big resinous hops flavour. Fresh cut grass (although i just mowed the lawn, maybe it;s already in my mouth) and harsh bitterness. Nice malt balance. Thanks a lot John!

Cloudy amber colour with nice off white head. Aroma of pine. Nice citrus flavours, maybe a little past prime. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

A nice DIPA, pretty balanced with some great hop flavors. Not too malty, the malt bill gives it some sweetness.

Should have checked the bottle date before picking this up. Marked September 2011. Ouch. Even with the age, this was enjoyable. Honey colored pour with a small eggshell head that left a spot or two. Aroma filled with caramel and toffee along with some bright citrus. Simlar flavor with no real crisp, eye crossing, or aggressive hops poking through. With age, it’s average. Fresh, it’s likely exceptional. Unfortunately, sampling the former. Will have to return to this.

bottle shared by some dude named "hammer." pleasant, bright kiwi fruit, pineapple, tangerine hop profile. quite fruity, but a juicy fruit, not a melony sweet dough fruit. taste is a dank, toasted toffee. bitter resin. slight booze. real nice. liked quite a bit.

Draft @ Yard House, Dedham, MA. Served in a pint. Excellent full white and lace real well down the glass. Nose is a ton of fruity hops, grapefruit, tangerine and citrus rind. Flavors of biscuit malt, grapefruit, light orange zest and light earthiness with a smooth, lingering moderately bitter finish. I like the flavors here. Maybe not enough bitterness for the killer hop heads but…. I really like the malt / hop balance. Glad to have found this on draft, real drinkable.
