Notes: Medusa's first definitive foray into our region's indigenous style of India Pale Ale, SOFT MACHINE is crafted with Maine-grown 2-Row and an extra-healthy potion of flaked oats and wheat to promote a soft, smooth mouthfeel and that telltale haze. Yeast-driven stonefruit esters are intertwined with vibrant tropical citrus fruit notes from the dry-hopping trifecta of Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic.

Medusa's latest version of the NEIPA is by far their best. This is a juice bomb, tropical mango paradise, softly lingers on the pallette. As good as the big names in this style.

16oz tallboy can, comp sample from the brewery.

Pours out all hazy amber-ish like fresh squeezed OJ, decent head and lacing. Big floral citrus bomb in the nose, hint of esters and grain as well. Restrained bitterness makes way for buckets of juice, big time hop flavor with a good malt backbone to back it up. Soft on the palate, but not too soft. Very well put together for the style, comparable if not better than some of the more hyped beers out there.
