Won this last night at a cristmas party grab bag. The Pats are playin NYJ so figured I'd give it a go. Poured into a 22oz oz mug and is pretty hazy with a one finger pillow like head. Smells of floral like hops maybe a hint of the malts in the background. Definite hop forward tast with a sharp bite that lingers. What you should expect from an Ipa in terms of bitterness. Nothing stands out with this beer but nothing really wrong with it either. It stikes me as more of an english style IPA than an American hanging with Long trail or Harpoon IPA. Good cheaper option that would go great pregaming for the big game. Well the boys are drivin after a pick trying to take homefield for the playoffs..Kippis!

Pours a four finger cream head that fades very slowly leaving an excellent lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Floral hoppy nose. Flavor is piney hops, malts are hidden. One redeeming quality of this beer is that they donate a dollar to breast cancer awareness. $3.49 for a 22oz bottle from Chase Street Market & Deli Plymouth, NH.

From the special Breast Cancer Awareness bottle with proceeds to benefit Susan G. Koman for the cure. Sampled on December 26, 2013.

It is a medium amber-orange pour with a touch of olive reflecting in the glass as well. Modest off-white head that lingers momentarily.

Caramel and biscuit malts are first to be picked up on the nose but it does not take long for the earthy and slightly floral hops to kick in the balance everything off nicely. But It is all very subtle.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is like the nose with a quick caramel malt character at first then evolving into a moderately bitter, lingering hop finish. But it is not overly hopped.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

Deep orange amber color produces a thick foamy 2 finger white head that slowly recedes with decent glass lacings

Aroma of citrus & floral hops and sweet malts.

Very hoppy. Opens with strong hops bitterness followed by citrus and mild caramel malts.After-taste has hoppy bitterness.

Crisp and smooth, medium mouthfeel.

Good IPA if you are in the mood for a bitter beer. Smooth and worthy of a repeat.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance that increases as you continue to drink the beer. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to pound down for a long time.

A very Buzzards Bay Brewing IPA. It's very hoppy, with some serious bitterness up front, but that overpowers everything else.

There isn't much body and the aftertaste is just that incredible bitterness you get on the front end.

I don't want to say that Wicked Pissa is a marketing gimmick, but it would survive without its Red Sox theme.

A - Orange and semi-transparent with two fingers of moderately dense head and very nice lacing.

S - Very fragrant citrus hops and bready maltiness.

T - Very hop forward pine, floral, and lemon zest. Deep malts underlying and alcohol not too present. Aftertaste recedes quickly leaving the subtle flavor of pine and floral hops.

M - Quite thin and watery actually. Moderate carbonation but not a lot of body.

O - This beer is pretty one note for me. There's a big punch of bitter hops at the start and that's about it. There needs to be more balance or complexity in the hops, and the thinness of the beer means the flavor washes away "wicked" fast. Overall this beer is about as weak as Brady's offensive line last Thursday!

Impressive starting head, leaves some webby lace and recedes lumpily. The color is dirty golden with some cloudiness.

Earthy with some darker malt aromas (despite the color). Light hop for balance.

The flavor is closer to the pale malt color--still some earthiness but not overly so. Strong hop kick in the swallow, lasts for a long time. Rich body with an elevated carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid IPA but an unremarkable one.
