First Amherst Brewing beer. Poured into pint glass, paired with chicken-flavored ramen noodles, as I have to excuse buying a 15 dollar 4-pack by my dinner only being 20 cents.
Straw-gold in color, two-finger head, scattered lacing. Pleasant oaty smell. You can taste the hops, but it's not punch-you-in-the-face bitter. It's sweet, a little citrusy. PERFECTLY carbonated, wonderful fine carbonation, light and smooth and delightful on its way down. I agree with another reviewer that it's very easy to drink. A good IPA for someone who's not really tried them before, maybe. An introductory IPA. Pleasant beer, good beer, a 7.3% alcohol volume that I really did not expect at all. Will buy from this brewery again.
Pours cloudy yellow gold with a foamy off white head that faded slowly and left nice foamy lacing. Tastes and smells of orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, lemons, biscuit, caramel, faint floral notes, citrus hops and light peppery spices. Good stuff.
Looks good, a cloudy pale orange with some thick lacing.
Smell and taste are pretty hoppy, with citrus and pine and tropicals. A light toasty caramel in the malts.
Full bodied, substantial and a mix of juicy/resinous, with a light spicy bitterness in the end to balance the earlier sweetness.
Overall very good, glad I picked it up!
First beer from the brewery.
Light cloudy golden color with a 4F head in a Spielgelau IPA glass.
The aroma is not strong with melon and citrus.
Light MF. Smooth.
Strong taste with lots of character. Melon and citrus.
Mild hoppy finish.
Excellent beer. Looking forward to tasting their beers.
16 oz can poured into a pint glass.
Appearance is golden hued yellow, very turbid, with small white evanescent head but lasting lace.
Smell is Dank, jungle floor, soft, fermented lemon.
Taste is soft, dank, rotten fruit, a little pale malt, herbal, wild honey.
Medium bodied, low carbonation
Overall, similar to Alchemist beers; in particular, focal banger, for better or for worse. A new-profile hop tea.
ordered this randomly off of a mediocre draft list, not really knowing what i was in for, but this totally impressed me! really awesome ipa here, and as dry hoppy as it is, it seems at least partially west coast to me, more clear than cloudy, and with more bitterness than a lot of these have, this reminds me of something green flash would make in their glory days, which is a high compliment. its oily in feel, thicker, some oats in the mash right? it holds a resinous honey sort of texture to it and has elements of fresh orange juice, heady weed, and sticky hop buds in it, really fresh and balanced and good. not afraid to use a little malt, which i like, just a trace of sweetness to the base lets the oils of the hops latch on and linger, sweet peach, ripe melon, juniper. simcoe, citra, mosaic, i mean, come on, how common can you be at this point, but this beer seems to employ them uniquely, i thought it was awesome! great body, killer balance, really assertive but dangerously drinkable too, this really turned me on!
Clear, neutral amber color. Beautiful 3D streaks and spots from the modest head.
I get an interesting weedy aroma along with a light bubblegum sweetness. When I re-froth the head, I get an earthiness which fades quickly, not to be captured again.
Strong start to the hop. It forms the base of this beer. The malt is toasty and dry with a rich "chew" to the mouth. High carbonation. Balanced (leans to the bitter) finish. Long aftertaste which becomes completely bitter.
Dated 4/25/18 on the bottom of the can, just under 3 weeks old.
Pours an unfiltered deep amberish bronze in the glass with two fingers of creamy white head. Nose starts off with a blend of dank citrus followed by a hint of peach, mango, pine, wet earth, pineapple, lime, pink grapefruit pith, slice of herbaceousness that borders on floral and an underlying honeyed bready malt. Taste follows the nose although a bit more muted. I also get a bit of increased sweetness I didn't pick up the nose changing the malt to a sort of raisin bread quality. Medium body with low bitterness and no drying. No detectable alcohol and a well balanced profile. A solid, well brewed balanced IPA that only really suffers from a lack of distinctness from other brews in such a crowded field.
