COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the little brother, in a bigger can, to our massively smooth and juicy 12% New England IPA (aka “Greylock” IPA). We dialed this Double 5-hopped IPA to 8% ABV and transformed the hop profile to include balanced dank and bittering notes. A hop lovers delight. This carefully constructed brew provides a little more complexity to the foundation of the “juice bomb” style that folks in our New England IPA market have come to expect- tropical, grapefruit, lime, melon notes that come together perfectly in a beautiful orange colored masterpiece. We are a proud Worcester County MA company, so naturally we used our own Cascade hops grown right here in Central Mass- the perfect latitude and climate for this traditional IPA hop. We believe that “8 is the new 5” so this is our perfect session beer!

Tallboy- pours orange with good clarity, great lacing and minimal head. Solid aromas of citrus, not a very bitter taste, dank with hints of grapefruit. Light on the palate, abrupt finish, pretty unique tasting. Nice beer.

Tallboy can shared by Jimmie. Poured a thinner to medium density clear bright orange. Aroma is solid, fresh squeezed citrus, lots of grapefruit, lime and toast. Flavor is just as good. Body is medium at best, lighter carbonation, and a lingering aftertaste.

Fresh tallboy purchased in Boston. Orange-gold color, light haze to it. Lots going on in this beer. Sweaty oily hops of old style. Sweet hops. Low bitterness. Sweet but no caramel. There is some weird hop flavor in there as well.

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness, hello loneliness
I think I’m-a gonna cry-y
Bye bye love, bye bye sweet caress, hello emptiness
I feel like I could di-ie
Bye bye my love goodby-eye

Concealer (1273) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2017
Can. Thanks HaroFever. Cloudy amber gold with a frothy, creamy, off white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of pine, toasted malt, dank, floral notes, light caramel, grapefruit, and melon. Flavor is pine, dank, toasted malt, light floral and perfume with some underlying caramel. Medium plus bodied, smooth with a dry, bitter end. Some heat as well. A IIPA that has more malt and bitter/dank notes to it than citrus.

Great beer, not my favorite Greater Good but it’s one I will be buying again!

3.2
tapefuzz (870) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Tasting. Pours orangey-gold with a medium white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, mango, melon, and floral hops. Taste is similar but with the addition of a little grapefruit. Minimal bitterness. Light body. Soft carbonation. Gentle mouthfeel. Deceptively alcoholic, this beer has a sessionable crispness to it. The only real weakness to this beer is that its flavors lack the intensity of most imperial IPAs; it is full of "juice" but lacks the "bomb."
