Westfield River’s most solid beer to date. The hop and malt blend are reminiscent of Port’s Mongo with a milder ABV. Fresh, this beer is very pungent and flavorful. Earlier batches seemed to have more aroma.

Pours gold into a shaker. White meringue head with excellent retention top hats and recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Caramel and grapefruit aromas. Astringent with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to mild grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Pours from a bomber into a tulip.. Decent safe IPA with relatively high bitterness and light hop flavor. Moderately malty without the hop flavor to counter balance. Decent startup beer from a new brewery.

Toasty malt focused ipa but what saves this one is that it’s not overly sweet. Decent but forgetable
