Another New England gem courtesy of bkett01. Thanks again, Brian.
Pours a hazy, unfiltered looking burnt gold. A little paler than most IPA's, I think.
Smells like a hop field, there's no two ways about it. Fresh grassy green scent with an undercurrent of spiciness.
Hop taste starts with a citrusy bite, escalates further into spicy grass notes, and rounds out into brick-solid bitterness. Just when the ride looks over, some malt creeps in to provide a little balance.
Very nice beer here, one I would love to have available on a regular basis. Now I want to try the rest of Smuttynose's line, to see how they compare.
