I bought a six of Wachusett 'Green Monsta' IPA up in Massachusetts recently. The name is an obvious referral to the Left Field Wall at Fenway Park. Poured from the bottle into an IPA appropriate glass, this brew has a thick, cream colored head, with nice lacing as the beer is quaffed. The body is a deep amber color. The aroma is quite enticing, reminding me of a walk in the hemlock ravines of the Berkshire mountains nearby. The first sip revealed a great balance between the citrus notes and bitterness of the hops, which are identified on the label as Cascade, Amarillo, & Centennial. The 6.1% abv is barely noticed. Overall a deeelicious west coast style IPA that I would be happy to drink again!

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, thick orange and with a big, pillowy white head that sticks around for a long time. Leaves a tons of sticky lacing down the side of the glass. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Pine, apricot, citrus, a little tiny bit of clove, and some lemon are all present.

Taste: This is a tasty, citrusy, hoppy IPA. It's approachable and drinkable and packs a ton of flavor.

Mouthfeel: Very easy on the palate for an IPA. Not so easy that it's boring - there's plenty to keep you interested - but it's very easy drinking for a beer with this hop profile.

Overall: Very nice IPA from those central Massholes. It's not quite as good as their Larry, but it's a damned worthy IPA.
