I recently discovered the Riverwalk Brewery in Newburyport, MA, and I was pleasantly surprised with their beer offerings. Their Riverwalk IPA is certainly their best beer for hard-core beer-lovers, but its style if very different from that of the New England's leading IPA producers such as The Alchemist or Maine Beer Company.

The Riverwalk IPA pours as an amber-brown with a thin, foamy head. It is lighter than most IPAs and only features a 6.75% ABV. It is crafted very much in the east-coast IPA style without too much citrus flavor. The beer features some citrus quality at the front, but with a much much dryer finish than many popular IPAs, making this a unique departure from the norm in New England. However, I have enjoyed this deviation from the trend very much as this is a well-crafted, well-balanced beer.

I strongly recommend this IPA as a less expensive, quality alternative to many of the trendy and difficult-to-obtain IPAs and DIPAs on the market today, and I for one have enjoyed this beer immensely.

from a bottle to a beer tulip
look; pale amber bronze, 1/2" off white fluffy head that leaves a thin covering and moderate lacing
smell; dirt, pine and floral hops, malt and floral hops conspire to finish with a glazed doughnut sweetness
taste; juicy fruity balanced with earthy dirty, sweet malt is not prevalent but present, sugared grapefruit finish
feel; wet, moderate carbonation, medium/full bodied, a little pucker to the finish but well balanced
overall; juicy well rounded, something dirty and guttural about this but in a way that makes it more interesting

Just pounded a 6 pack and wow i feel good. The aroma, the feel, the lace, the stank is like no other, a real taint.

A beautiful looking copper colored, laced up IPA. Awesome floral notes that don't quite translate to the taste. More pine and grass than citrus. It's well balanced but not quite what the nose suggests. Medium feel and carb. Overall a nice classic tasting IPA that's slightly bitter and features more malts and pine than stone fruit.
