Thanks to Phil for throwing this one in during a recent trade.

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head and some nice lacing.

S: Tons of grapefruit, lemon rind, and tropical fruit in the nose. Wonderfully hoppy with just a touch of sweetness and bready malt.

T: The flavor is a nice mixture of sweetness (brown sugar?) and hop fruitiness and bitterness. The hops are very heavy on the grapefruit with a bit of pineapple and some nice pine on the finish.

M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp finish.

D: A really nice IIPA and one of the better east coast offerings for the style. I would be happy to have this one again.

Poured 22oz bomber into snifter.

A - Poured a bright light amber/light burnt orange color with a solid 2 finger head that is boarding between slightly off white and snow white. The 2 finger head sticks around for a long time and dissipates to a 1 finger head for a while then goes down to a nice covering on the beer that leaves great lacing down the glass.

S - Hits your nose as follows: orange rind, grapefruit, slight pine, sweet toffee malt.

T - Orange followed by a nice kick of grapefruit that is nicely balanced by caramel/toffee sweetness with a good hit of bitterness in the end that is not overpowering at all with a bit of earthiness at the end. Good example of an east coast IPA.

M - Good amount of carbonation and a slight coating is left. There is a distinct bitterness at the back of your tongue that lets you know that it's an IPA.

D - Very drinkable with a lower ABV for an Imperial IPA but the "Imperialness" comes from the quality of this fine brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Chill-hazed orange with a nice sized frothy head. Lacing is prevalent.

S: Pink grapefruit, orange blossom honey and a certain earthiness that I can't quite put my finger on. It's not as pungent as some of the best DIPAs, but it's still very nice.

T: A good dose of hop flavor (but not really bitterness) up front transitioning into a nice lemon/orange rind bitterness for the finish. There is also a malt sweetness and some bready notes from the Munich malt.

M: Medium-full body. Any thicker and it would be too malty. Any thinner and the finish would be too astringent.

D: I am proud that this beer is brewed in my home state.

I had this at American Craft in Brookline while watching the Celtics-Lakers Game 1 NBA Finals.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass.

The color is a hazy with a slight orange/yellow color with about two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet with a nice sweet floral hop flavor with some nice citrus flavor with some nice orange and grapefruit. A nice bouquet of really sweet aromatics in the nose is quite pleasant.

The taste is real fruity up front and has a nice mix of grapefruit and some great tangerine. There is a real nice juicy bitterness that is fronted by a piney flavor. There is a bit of a caramel feel that seems to come from the malts and mixes well into the hoppy flavors that seem to dominate.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and comes down well and is pretty drinkable. It has a nice smooth, creamy feel and had a moderate amount of carbonation. A really good DIPA from a local brewery in MA.

Purchased across the street at a gas station in Chicopee MA on my way to play poker with Soupedup. A nice Surprise. Didn't expect to find anything at this place. Very small with a very small selection. Quality though, found a nugget nectar, wachusetts larry, and a moylans hopsickle. Probably only left because their normal clientele doesn't seem to be those into craft brews.

A - A Medium amber body with a decent white head. Poured into my pint glass.

S - Great citrus, bitter grapefruit, some pine, that oh so lovely hop aroma.

T - Nice bitter grapefruit. Not as much citrus comes through as in the aroma. Nice hop character. Malt backbone heavier than expected. Overall, very tasty.

M - Pretty smooth, borders an IPA and a DIPA.

I was pumped to find and try this one. A very solid beer.

Presentation: 22 oz. bomber bottle poured into a Portsmouth Brewery pint glass.

Appearance: Deep yellow to light orange in color. Two finger, beige, pilloewy head with decent retention. Mostly clear, an almost imperceptiable amount of haze throughout.

Aroma: Grapefruit and pine notes. The sweet grapefruit and tropical fruit notes stand out first, with the pine offering a little bitterness toward the end.

Taste: Very sweet tropical fruit and grapefruit notes upfront. The pine and bitter notes from the hops balance out the flavors toward the end. Slight bitter aftertaste. Really nice flavor profile, that manages to be flavorful and not a complete hop bomb.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a bit dry toward the end. Oily as well.

Drinkability: Very average ABV for a double IPA, so that was not a main issue. The hop flavors were pleasant and made for a nice sipping beer. I had no trouble finishing one bottle.

Overall, an enjoyable and flavorful IPA. Really nice hop flavor throughout and just genuinely enjoyable. Definitely recommended.

Used this in a few trades and decided to try it myself. Freshest by August 2010...

A: Beautiful golden honey with a thick 1 inch white head that fades at a decent rate. Very good.

S: Can smell this one from the table. Super citrus hops blended very well with grapefruit. Hints of earthy honey on the back. Very good.

T: This here is more of my kind of IPA. Bitter hop and sweet malt blend awesome. Get definitely honey and a pinch of cinnamon on the backend. Good.

M: Very good. Doesn't leave too heavy of a taste on your palate, but doesn't leave no taste at all. Very smooth.

D: Goes down very easy. So easy to get down. Very good.

All in all, this is one of the best IPA's I've ever tasted. Not many IPA's do that for me. A very good gateway IPA for people who are not big IPA fans. A definite must try.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a nice cloudy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing to follow. The nose is hoppy, with some malt notes, citrus aplenty. The taste is hoppy, bitter, slightly sweet, nice little malt note, and a good dose of citrus. Medium body. Drinkable, way to go Wachusett.

Drank from a 1 pint 6 oz. bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
For Freshest Taste Enjoy By AUG 2010
Served in a snifter

A bubbly, two-finger, off-white cap of froth topped the hazy, peach-colored liquid. The head displayed excellent retention, lasting throughout most of the drink. Thick chucks of lacing stuck all along the sides of the glass. This was one magnificent looking brew.

The aroma was pleasant yet a bit understated for my liking. Cotton candy-like notes were immediately noticeable. Fruity and floral hops were apparent as well. The hoppiness however was rather restrained for the style. As the beer warmed, the nose became somewhat more punchy and citrusy.

Unlike the aroma, the taste was loaded with lots of hoppy goodness. Fruity, juicy and citrusy. A stiff caramel malt backbone was detectible but the malts merely played a supporting role to the hops. Notes of pine and citrus were quite apparent. Spicy in the center. Orange zest was noticeable. Some tropical fruit notes appeared as well. The finish was piney, pithy and dry. Grapefruit peel came through strong, along with a touch of alcohol warmth.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Smooth, creamy and pillowy with a fine moderate carbonation. Soft and supple on the palate. Quite impressive.

Drinkability was outstanding. Stylistically speaking, this beer is more of an extra IPA than a double IPA. That considered, Larry still drinks remarkably well. I could imagine myself easily putting down an entire bomber in a session.

Larry is an extremely well-crafted DIPA. I love the fact that I am supporting a quality, local product. Additionally, I love the price point ($5.50-$6.50 a bottle in the Boston-area).

Received from Jdiddy in trade
Poured into Spiegelau tulip glass

A - hazy orange amber, reminiscent of west coast IPAs, off white head, random sized bubbles throughout, lacing reaches almost all the way around glass and strands down towards the beer

S - pine resin, good bit of grapefruit and lemon in the back

T - more sweet (caramel) and spicy (coriander) flavors than expected, middle is caramel and pine, the citrus doesnt really show up until far back in the palette leaving a dry, bitter aftertaste

M - perfect body for a DIPA, crisp, well carbonated, glides along the palette

D - this beer could certainly contend with the best from the West Coast, will seek out again

A pour into my Duvel tulip yields a rich orange beer with a massive off white cap that leaves lacing in spades down the side of the glass. The nose is exclusively of juicy citrus hops, quite intriguing. The taste is of the same, but with an appreciable caramel hop sweetness to balance things out. The bitterness is restrained for a IIPA. The body is suitably full/creamy, but the carbonation is a little bit low (surprising given the appearance). The low ABV for the style and the more subdued bitterness makes this quite drinkable, I'd almost rather label at an "extra IPA" as SN does their Torpedo. Regardless of what category it falls in, Larry is a damn fine beer.

Received this in a very nice package from nonstick in our most recent trade, along with its little brother, California style IPA. Thanks Chris!

Appearance- Pours a medium shade of amber with just a touch more orange than the California single IPA version and about a finger of head. Head dies back fairly quickly on this very to some patching thin sheeting. A fair amount of beading carbonation to begin with but gradually dies down. Not much in the way of lacing however.

Smell- Much like the single IPA, a great citrusy nose. Huge notes of orange cream, bitter grapefruit rinds, and maybe even some pineapple here. Big fruits with little in the way of pine. Smells very good.

Taste- Starts off fruity, particularly heavy on the grapefruit rinds. More orange to follow up and again, some bready malt showing through, but not in a show stealing way. Finishes with bitter hop resins that, not surprisingly, are more evident than in the single IPA.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Mouthfeel is slick and creamy with enough carbonation to keep it moving. Drinkability is very good for a DIPA and again, the ABV won't kill you at 7.5% for a double IPA.

Overall, a very solid DIPA and something I'd be interested in getting more of. Interestingly though, I think I actually slightly preferred the California style IPA when compared within their style category. Very solid and recommended though.

Picked up a bomber at People's Liquor in Warwick, RI while here for a wedding.
Poured into an over sized wine goblet. Nice bright amber color with 2 finger creamy head. Smell is ok with just a bit of pine and citrus. Taste is kind of disappointing, bit of pine and citrus again with a big bready malt presence. A bit too well balanced for my double ipa expectations. Mouth feel is good but nothing spectacular. Its a well balanced, no hint of alcohol double ipa. Not bad but not great either. I think it may have been better when very fresh but I am glad I got to try it while up here.

M: Medium in body, smooth, tasty.

D: Good a tasty drinkable DIPA with great balance.

Thanks to my boy Bill for this bottle. Poured from a 22oz. bomber into a Ten Penny Ale pint glass.

A: Golden with a 3-finger foamy white head. Has nice tight carbonation.

S: Nothing special here. A little Munich malts and honey. Perhaps my "smell-buds" are screwed up from using bleach earlier.

T: Ever-changing. The base is a bittersweet symphony of citrus with a little caramel in the background. Awesome.

M: The best feature of this beer. Goes in and down perfectly.

D: It was tough to rate the drinkability of this beer. For the first couple of sips I was getting a boozy finish but after the bottle had been open for a while I didn't have this issue anymore.

Overall, a local DIPA that I can appreciate anytime.

Larry. Short, sweet, says nothing, but somehow says it all. Big thanks to steve8robin for this gem.

It pours a very cloudy gold, topped ever so briefly by a beautiful white head. A gentle swirl paints the glass with arms of resiny lacicles. Beautiful.

Smell is a compact perfume full of all the glory of citrus hopping, luscious neutral sweet and pale malt, some deeper sweet notes, and a gentle pine resin bite at the edge. Very fragrant, tempting.

The taste of this is marvelous. More sweet in the sip than many, but somehow stays light, and allows the hops really to shine in this, and they do. Didn't get it in the nose, but there is a fresh yeasty tang undertone to this that really sends the sip to IIPA heaven. It is full of a range of citrus through the sip, full of a gradual pine resin and citrus bitter in the finish, and notes of light bread, and malty sweet beginning to end, extremely well balanced in this, so that the whole shines. Exceptionally delicious.

Mouthfeel is where many fall down. Larry shines here. The resin cling, and lasting flavors of this are incredible. Any drier would have been too dry.

Drrinkability is of the Hopslam variety. Easy drinking to a fault. The flavor of Larry will keep you craving more.

Impression: In a year filled with the best IIPA ever brewed on the planet, Larry is one of them. Get this if you see it, if you love IIPA you will love this.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Loterbol tulip. Thanks to Jayli for this from our recent trade!

For Freshest Taste Enjoy By (notched) JUL 2010

A: Pours an inpressively hazy and unfiltered, glowing peach color. Immediately, three fingers of sticky, light-orange head swells up to just over the rim of the glass before slowly falling down to a chunky skim. Loads of frothy lace sheets were left behind.

S: Large dose of pine with layers of apricot, apple, caramel, tangerine, pineapple, and a faint whiff of alcohol.

T: Once again, big time pine at the forefront. This is followed by the aforementioned apricot, tangerine, caramel, apple, pineapple, fresh mango, and now with a healthy dose of alcohol.

M: Very much on the sticky, oily, and spicy side of things. Awesome peppery burn lingers on the lips and tongue long after the swallow. The resinous hop oils made my teeth feel squeaky!

D: Only 7.5% and yet this feels like it could easily hang with the big boys that hover in the 9-11% range. Fantastic!

Thanks go to ShogoKawada for this one.

This pours up a beautiful, slightly hazy, golden orange color, somewhat like a sunset on a warm summer evening. Just over a fingers worth of fluffy white foam makes up the head which fades down to a total surface covering film of about an 1/8 of an inch thick. It leaves nicely thick and quite sticky lacing down the sides of the glass.

The nose is a very good balance of hops and malts. Nice notes of caramel and a slight hint of brown sugar are here. They are only slightly outshined by the floral and citrus hops notes. Lots of grapefruit, lime and oranges, with a light undertone of pine.

This is a totally understated and muted beer. There are some light hints of malty sweetness and of hop bitterness, but it's all just kind of bland and lifeless. Good citrus and floral notes, when you look for them, along with a touch of caramel biscuit malts. Nothing to get excited about, sadly.

It's almost full-bodied and has a light-to-medium level of carbonation. This helps it maintain a good smoothness and gives it a small touch of creaminess.
Regretfully, the finish is similar to seltzer water.

Okay, as far as DIPA/IIPA's go, this one is quite drinkable. But, that's because there just isn't much to it. I prefer my DIPA's to be a touch more bold, either in the hops or malts area, it doesn't matter. Just give me something to latch on to.
I'm very glad to have had this one, especially because of some forum comments that made me believe that this would be one that I'd really like. Unfortunately, I won't seek it out again.

Poured into a tulip glass, Larry has a typical golden yellow color with hues of orange highlights. Bone white, single finger head, holds solid. Great head retention. Mildly hayzy unfilltered apperance.
Sweet orange flower boquet is plesant to the nose. Grain scents peak out from behind hop profile. A little weak in the hop aroma for an imperial IPA, however sweet and plesant.
A mostly piney hop profile with hints of citrus charecter. More of a pale grain flavor than typical. Some mango and other tropical flavors merge in dryness with suttle bready finish. A bit of alchol fusal.
Thick and chewy mouthfeel. Nice smoothness as drink builds in mouth. Typical hop resins linger in mouth.
Respectable offering from the people at Wachusett. Puts east coast brewers in contention with this generously hopped offering. Great to see this offering as a year-round selection.

I poured from a bomber into an oversized goblet. The color is a slightly hazy brassy color. A big fluffy head sank slowly, leaving a dense lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fresh sliced citrus - tangerine, lime, grapefruit; and some pine.

Interesting taste, the hop flavor is strong, but the effervescence makes it feel lighter and less viscous. Great aromatic hop taste leaving lots of hop bitterness lingering in the finish. The malt isn't strong, but there is enough toasty sweetness there to balance the bitterness. Overall it's bright and fruity.

The mouthfeel is a bit light for an DIPA, but it works. The medium/high carbonation spreads the hop oils around intensifying the bitterness, the way drinking beer or water spreads the hot oil from chili peppers around your mouth.

Way, drinkable! I downed this one faster than I usually drink DIPAs. It's just too easy and tasty.

This is a great brew. My impression is that it is lighter than many other DIPAs I've had, with a slightly less intense hop aroma, but there is an intensity to the bittering/flavoring hops that really hangs around and builds.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint, formed a 1 1/2" dense beige head above the slightly cloudy orangey amber brew. Head falls WAY slowly, leaving a tall monolith of froth in the center, and thick coating all down the glass walls. Aroma is light to moderate of fruity hops, but nowhere near what I would hope for.

Taste starts with juicy fruit hops flavor, moderately sweet in the middle, and closes medium bitter. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good as well. Hops character did start to blossom as the beer dwindled, but it didn't make up for the slow start.

Beer served in a tulip, shared by Brad at a recent tasting, thanks I've been wanting to try these new NE IPAs.

Beer is yellow to orange and really hazy. Forms a white head of medium and small bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. Carbonation is moderate to low and looks pretty good.

The aroma is great. It is strong citrus hops with grapefruit, lime and some earthiness to it. Not much malt comes through in the aroma and I like that a lot. I caught myself smelling the empty bottle later in the night. Very awesome amarillo / cascade / citra aroma.

Beer is medium body, carbonation level in the mouth is completely appropriate. Not much sweetness, just enough on the front to get to the fruit flavors from the hops and the bitterness in the back. The beer is bitter but not overpowering. Its an interesting and good DIPA and I would definitely get more of it -- if that were possible.

This bottle kicked off the tasting at Brad's on Saturday.

Larry pours dark yellow, is pretty hazy, has a decent sized head and good lacing. Citrus and floral aromas smell very fresh and inviting. The beer is slightly sweet, with nice tart citrus fruits and some herbal/floral notes. The alcohol is hidden very well and this beer is nice and easy to drink. Overall, a very solid brew, and a good example of the style.

Big foamy white head with good staying power. Pours a hazy golden peach. Sticky webbed lacing.

The nose contains citrusy, lemon-mango infused hops, some faint pine notes and sweet malts. Orange sorbet with a touch of bitterness.

Lots of mango, orange and a touch of grapefruit in the flavor. Very fruit forward. Hop bitterness is good, but could be a tad stronger. Smooth malts with a touch of sweetness. Finishes with malty light bitterness. A good amount of fruit, but leaves you wanting a bit more in the hop department.

Mouthfeel is smooth and lingers on the light side for a DIPA. Carbonation is small, tingly and there is some bitterness. Seems a bit light for the style.

Easy drinking, refreshing, on the light side for DIPAs. Good for regular IPA drinkers who want just a bit more form their beer. Drinking the bomber is no problem.

Overall, this is a good DIPA, but it's not quite up there with the big guns. The fruit is nice, but I'd like to see more hops and a beefier body. Still worth seeking out, especially if you like fruitier IPAs.
