John Harvard's Framingham, MA. I really like IPA's but there wasn't anything "BIG" about this Tex IPA. IBU's were way on the low side as was the ABV and the carbonation really sucked. I hate a failed IPA. The beers listed on their website are way out of date. You should call to see what they have if you care about your brew.

It looks promising: a murky dark honey with a full inch of creamy nougat topping that leaves of ring of foam all the way down.

Sweet scent.

Mouthfeel like nitro, not cask.

Sweet malt slowly followed by husky bitter tannins with a hint of orange. Very grassy hops with orange and more grass in the finish. I get a strange hollow feeling in the flavor--very bitter and very sweet and never once the twain could meet.
