Poured from a growler refilled at the brewery yesterday into an Allagash snifter/stemmed glass. Shared with a friend in the evening with all the windows open and a nice breeze blowing.

A: Beautifully clear, golden color that shines nicely when held to light. Two fingers of foam
dissipates to a thin sticky head that lasts throughout with steady, webby lacing.

S: Soft, easy malts with a wonderfully bright, citrusy hop aroma.

T: Identical to the nose, superbly soft maltiness from the wheat coupled with a balanced bright hoppiness, which is by no means subdued, makes this one of the most pleasant IPA's ive had in recent memory. The yeast gives this ale a character that for me is reminiscent of many Hill Farmstead IPA's that ive had.

M: Excellently balanced. Can't stop sipping

O: I have tried most of the offerings from Blue Lobster since their opening and I have been thoroughly impressed each and every time. Their beers are very consistent batch-to-batch and this recent brewing of Stalkholm Syndrome is no exception. Hands down the best brewery in NH, IMO. Nice job Mike and Dave, Please keep blowing my mind.

Stalkholm Syndrome pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a moderate sized, creamy head. The foam dissolves slowly leaving a coating of lace behind.

The aroma has lots of grapefruit citrus, lemon rind and a touch of pine. Some pale malt is also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is watery and smooth with moderate carbonation. The flavor has lots of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit (mango). There's a nice sweet pale malt backbone balancing out all the hops. It finishes dry and moderately bitter with lingering grapefruit when gone.

This is a very tasty, hoppy beer with a nice malt balance. It's easy to drink and not too bitter.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750ml growler into a tulip glass

A - a nice hazy, golden orange color. Has about a quarter inch of a white head. Not much lacing.

S - deep smell like a belgian. Lots of hops and citrus with a little melon underneath the citrus. A little lemon.

T - has a really nice belgian taste to it. really deep, thick tasting to it. pretty dank and really hoppy and citrus. Tastes have a little pine and melon, orange peel. Very little wheat taste to it which I attribute to the belgian style. Picked up light traces of ginger.

M - really juice feel to it. No hoppy bitter dry finish.

O - This was a really nice IPA that has quite a bit of flavor to it. The Belgian wheat taste to it really solidifies this overall taste of this and ties all the flavors together. Very solid offer from Blue Lobster and wouldn't mind having this again.

Presentation: 750 mL growler (or howler) filled today at the brewery. Description says this is a wheat IPA. Kept chilled since being filled. Poured into a Russian River tulip glass.

Appearance: Golden yellow to light orange in color. Clear body, not cloudy in the slightest. Pours a pretty nice, one finger pillowy white head and holds a really nice lacing.

Aroma: Light citrus tones hit first. Some pineapple and tropical fruit as well. Plenty of hop character. A touch of light pine as well.

Taste: Lots of bitter grapefruit and citrus zest (oranges and tangerines). Definitely leans more toward bright and tropical. Lots of pineapple and mangos. A slight pine and resin character as well adds toward the bitter grapefruit. Really nice and refreshing. Nice dry, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: A bit more body than the average IPA. A touch of creaminess, but still refreshing and light overall.

Overall, a really nice hoppy wheat ale. Definitely like what I have had so far from Blue Lobster and this is no exception. Tons of hop flavor considering the ABV is still relatively low.
