New Guy IPANew Guy IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Atlantic Brewing Company / Mainely Meat BBQ
Maine, United States
atlanticbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
With the recent explosion of over-the-top hopped IPAs, we wanted to return to an India Pale Ale that was well-hopped, but still balanced and smooth. Our brewers wanted to name it after one of our hardworking staffers, so we decided to name it after Daveā€”the new guy. This beer is made with one hundred percent Columbus hops and only one malt, yielding a nice earthy tone and spicy flavors. Columbus hops have a citrusy profile, which is more subtle than that found in most IPAs.

12 oz bottle, poured into a basic glass. A great, well balanced IPA.

Just like the overall rating implies, it's OK....

Not worth seeking out in my opinion.

Pours an amber color with off white lacing. Immediate taste is bitter with prominent piney notes. Thin on the palate relative to other IPAs. Finishes much the same way it started. It reminds me of an IPA I made recently, and I'm a terrible brewer. Skip it.

Looks like an IPA.
Hazy orange color. Nice thick head.
Mild but sweet and fruity smell.
The beer is not balanced.
It does have some malt sweetness but it is overwhelmed by the earthy hops.
It has a bitter finish and a sour after taste.
This beer is just too harsh for my liking.
