COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LARRY was originally brewed this summer for the Publick House’s Hop Head Throwdown.

We’ll be putting it in 22’s in March 85 IBUs 5-hops (Simcoe, Magnum, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook)

mcberko (5940) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 22 oz. bottle, sent from gn0sis (thanks Eric), pours a cloudy orangey with a small head. Aroma is quite pungent with truckloads of grapefruity hops, quite skunky, resinous hops and caramel malts. Flavour is quite grapefruity and citrusy in hops, with a decent amount of malt to back. Medium complexity and quite a bitter finish. Solid.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 1, 2011
Der hopfige Beginn ist dumpf und eher dunkel, weit weniger blumig als der Geruch vermuten lässt. Auch im weiteren Verlauf weniger hopfig als vermutet, stattdessen würzig herb, süßlich, im Zusammenspiel vollmundig. Das Gesamtaroma hält leider nur kurz und zerbircht im Abgang schnell, Fruchtig bittere Noten sind hier noch vorhanden, im Nachgeschmack trockene Grasigkeit. 8/10/11/9/7/9

uvajed (171) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Wachusett sampler pack I found on a road trip to the Boston area. I liked all four beers, and rank this a close second to the regular IPA. Good, mild floral and citrus nose, caramel, some malt, and hints of citrus flavors. Hop heaven here, and the multiple varieties they use work really well in this combination. Get this if you see it, a must-try for and IPA fan or hophead. Wish I could find it in NE Ohio. The Wachusett folks don’t mess around or get overly ambitious with crazy ideas - they brew really good beer.
