Did not enjoy. Unhoppy yet unflavorful

Very hoppy; I'm not a fan of hoppy beers because they are an abomination. It's not 1750 in British East India.

A: rich medium amber with a dense, easily-resuscitated khaki head. The aroma picked up bready and lesser fruity notes topped by resiny pine and earthy hoppage.

T: The flavor found bread and biscuity malts at the core, with earth and light fruity bitterness around, tacky caramel and biscuit malts plus some unidentifiable bitterness on the finish.
M: Medium-bodied, but with a thicker feel at times on the palate.

overall a decent brew.

Pours a three-finger cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Nice crystal clear, deep amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is light grapefruit hops, flavor is grapefruit, bread and tiny hints of caramel. Close to an IPA. Lingering bitter aftertaste. $1.79 for a 12oz bottle from Kappy's Fine Wine & Spirits Peabody, Ma.

Poured into a Wachusett Brewing pint glass.

A: Poured with a pinky of off-white head. Crystal clear brown with slight ochre highlights.

S: Hoppy. Not overpoweringly so, but the piney hop qualities are all I could really notice.

T: And again, as the name might already have you expecting, this one comes out hoppy. Pine needles and a little pale malts with some bitterness throughout and a touch of toastiness on the end.

M: Light and sticky and foamy. Like drinking a rabbit.

O: I need to stop trying very highly rated brews where hops are playing the main stage. Not that I can't enjoy them, or didn't enjoy this, but I feel like I'm not getting as much out of it as others are. An enjoyable clean brew that tastes a little like a coniferous forest. Good if you're into that sort of thing.
