Hey, this wasn't a beer a liked a few years ago, but things have changed at Wachusett! Tastes great now, really nice balance of mild spice, hop and alcohol to a clean finish. It's actually pretty darn good now!

Nice golden orange pour, and a foamy white head after a hard pour. Dank and resiny hops with herbal notes and a dry bready aroma. The taste follows closely with the finish being mostly bitter. This has good body, flavor and drinkability for an east coast IPA.

There is something about this beer that I just don't love. I like it, for sure, but likely wouldn't go looking for it. The can I had oddly seemed a little burnt.

I really dig this beer. The hop mix is great; apart from bittering hops you get simcoe for earthy resin, amarillo for orange, cascade for floral/citrus, and chinook for pine. The beer looks awesome in the glass, unfiltered and hazy with a nice head that sticks around for a bit. I thought the mouthfeel was great as a result, carbonation picks up the malt gravity and abv, which by the way is pretty well hidden. People may be under appreciating how good this beer is because it's fairly obtainable, which is fine by me because I can just go get more.

I'm from the Wachusett area (north central mass). That being said, I wish it weren't such a mediocre a beer. `I also cannot understand the over the top reviews on this carp. Yes, I said carp, no typo. Out of 10 this is a 4. If you would like to experience a truly heavenly brew in this genre, I strongly suggest ingesting a Heavy seas Double Cannon. Mwah! Baby. ggggggggg. To each his own. This world doesn't suck, people do.

Citrus and pine. Resiny mouth coating. Good stuff, especially for the price. Careful, it will punch you in the face.
