This IPA from Woodstock has a lot of hops. For someone who likes the taste of a strong IPA, this beer is fantastic. From the typical NH style label, to the color of the beer, everything seems to work well. I find myself kicking back on a warm summer day in NH with this beer more often than others.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, caramel coloring with a frothy, foamy, off-white head that settles into a sparse surface coating. Aromas of spicy hops forward, with a toffee and caramel backbone, cedar notes, and a solid bitterness. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with toffee leading the charge, followed quickly by pepper spice, resiny cedar and bitterness, and a solid ribbon of tart grapefruit. Very well layered flavors. Robust and light bodied at the same time, with a very bitter, resiny aftertaste. This one gets big at the end. Bitter and slightly tart linger on a dry, resiny finish. This is a good IPA.

My older daughter and I stopped into the brewpub on Saturday, 07FEB15, for a light snack and some Biers. She had the Wassail; it was the 4000'er for me. A pint vom Faß was $3.75.

The shaker pint held a clear, medium copper libation. Head was a thin, wispy trail of white scattered across the surface. Lacing was decent, and carbo within was slow and steady. Aroma was solid, with piney grapefruit and other citrus fruit present. Mouthfeel, too, was solid, with a medium body and minimal prickle on the tongue.

The flavor had a touch of toasty, caramle malt, with a hint of butterscotch. Rindy grapefruit soon took over, with lots of resiny, piney citrus hitting the palate. The hops lingered quite well in the finish. Found this to be a solid, quaffable IPA. Prosit!!

A: Pours a clear orange-amber, with a big a good sized white head. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing as the glass is emptied. It's a pretty good looker, but I'd prefer it to be a bit hazier.

S: This is the 4000 Footer's strong suit. Even after letting the bomber sit in my fridge for a month or two, the nose is just a blast of dank, bitter hops--lots of grass and pine, with a bit of citrus. It smells like the freezer at the homebrew store. The smell is definitely not balanced--very little in the way of malts--and normally I look for more of a balance, but this was just such a fresh, clean, bright, hoppy smell that I couldn't keep my nose out of the glass.

T: The hops don't dominate the taste as much as they do the smell, with some crackery malts to balance out the grapefruit and pine notes of the hops. The finish is a bit herbal, with a strong lingering bitterness, but not bad.

M: Medium-bodied, but perhaps a bit under-carbonated, and quite dry. The bitter finish leaves some prickliness on the tongue, but overall quite drinkable.

O: I had read the 82 IBUs, but still wasn't expecting something quite so hoppy from a brewery that otherwise doesn't seem to do hop bombs. It was a pleasant surprise, and the smell alone was a real treat. Perhaps with a few tweaks, this could be a really great beer, but as it is it's solid and one I'll definitely pick up again.
