Look: Pours a pale yellow with a good white head that leaves good lacing

Taste: Good floral and citrus hops, light bitterness

Feel: Light body, good carbonation

Overall: A good but unimpressive IPA

Wow, this beer is taking it in the chin for reviews. I had at the Fat Cat on tap in Quincy, and I enjoyed it. I agreed with the reviews...it was much more of a Pale Ale than a traditional IPA. But it was a good pale ale in my mind. So sure, maybe the end result wasn't what they planned, I liked the result. Be like if you ordered a pizza, and instead you got some fantastic Chinese food instead - just be happy that you enjoyed it. Good job Blue Hills giving us what we want, not what we asked for

Pour is clear copper color with a tight white head. Nose is rubber, notes of plastic, some caramel malt, and a light resin hop. Taste is metallic, burnt rubber, caramel, candied orange sugar. Creamy body, moderate carb, a bit syrupy, dry finish.

I bought several dozen bombers to a party and we tried about 7 different BHB beers. What we experienced way out in here in Plainville MA is that it was not a very good experience, we had every single beer in some level of spoilage. No product expiration date or batch codes on bottles. I called this brewery and all they said was “it happens” well I am no longer a fan and actually never was. The owner of the package store said he was done with this brewery.

This was awful. Drain poured it. I'm really not sure what they were doing with this, but most home brews have been better.
