Bottle at the Bartinis. Pours clear, deep gold with a white foam head. Basic toasty malts, old pine, orange rind. Moderately sweet, some earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with toasty and grainy malts, earth, leaves, orange peel. This is what people were talking about 10 years ago when they used the term ’East Coast IPA’. bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2015
APPEARANCE - looks good. Golden color with light head.
NOSE - smells a bit of floral notes, and a bit of earthy ones to balance.
FLAVOR - strong presence of earthy hop, and unbalanced bitterness ? particularly when warm. It?s a lot like an overly hopped lager.
NOTES - the beer presents well, and smells good, but the flavor is where it takes the off-ramp.

Very good IPA, rather surprising as so far my experience with Wachusett has been kind of *shrug*. retinadoc (236) - - DEC 29, 2014
Can. Surprisingly robust aroma and flavor from a can. Strong hoppy IPA flavors, slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This one was poured into a pint glass every time.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace and ends up leaving some nice slightly foamy lacing.
The smell was completely floral but did allow a decent citrus back up. Don’t count on any sweet malts trying to show up, damn, this stuff is powerful.
The taste was florally and citrusy sweet.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation had the right amount of sharpness for an AIPA.
Overall, no complaints from me as this was a really nice AIPA well worthy of having again. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Medium bitterness, has a floral nose, citrus notes, very basic flavors, pleasant.
