This is a good example of an east coast IPA. It has a strong malt presence that lends a richness common with New England craft beers, but has an assertively bitter hop that's closer to it's western pals. I would recommend for someone new to New England beers.

Very Enjoyable IPA that doesn't overpower the senses.
Appearance: Amber orange color with a 2" white lingering head. Good lacing.
Smell: Some citrus, some earthiness, but not that strong.
Taste: Some citrus, a hint of alcohol, but again, not a dominate "hop-head" type of beer
Mouthfeel: Good body, the right amount of carbonation.
Overall: at no point did I have any overwhelming positive or negative opinions about this beer. But, I drank it during an NCAA Game, finished the 22oz, and thought "I'd like another one of these." Don't overthink this one, just enjoy it.

Cloudy, dirty gold liquid. The head is solid and it settles slowly. Lots of blanketing lace on the glass.

Mild but earthy hop bite. The malt doesn't really show up to the nose.

Interesting journey that starts off malty but quickly succumbs to a strong black pepper hop bite. But after the bitter swallow, the malt shows up again. Full bodied with a below average carbonation level.

The Big Elm India Pale Ale pours an orange/golden color with a solid white head. This beer has a citrus, grassy flavor to it but it is really not that hoppy as most IPAs. Overall its a decent, mellow ipa that I did enjoy but i wouldn't recommend to the true hop heads out there.
