drank so much of this - in and around Waterbury as well as a liter growler to go, and lord it was a lovely time
Susan is a deep, golden apricot in color with a rich cream white head that leaves good lacing. A carefully crafted hop blend is the highlight here - those lovely NZ hops bring their tropical medley including kiwi, mango, and passionfruit with the others bringing citrus highlights of tangerine and grapefruit. Juicy and fresh, riding a light, subtly sweet pale malt base with a touch of honey. Pleasant on the palate - moderate in body with a soft light-moderate carbonation. A balanced bitterness with a touch of citrus oil accents the finish and provides a dry, drinkable close. A top-tier IPA that pulls in all the best characteristics of a great hop blend and sets them against a thoughtful malt base..

Another shout out to Ineedabeerhere. Pours a dull orange hue with a hazy clarity and a frothy, textured, bright white head. Nose expresses tangerines, simcoe hops and a hint of grain. Taste follows nose - a little less bright than suggested by the nose with the addition of a light, slightly lingering medicinal bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a slight acidity and a carbonation that falls just short of crisp. Overall, very good, but closer to an APA than an IPA in my opinion.
