A terrific east coast IPA. Extremely drinkable and medium-bodied. When I introduce people to IPAs this would be one of the first I have them try.

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!
