An India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed by
New England Brewing Co.
Woodbridge, Connecticut USA
Had on tap at the brewery but this one comes in a can at the store. I love canned beers as you really don’t have to worry about beers getting skunked by light. Pours dark from the can with a small but nice head. Smells of grains and malt with the hops coming through slightly. Herbal aroma, with an earthy nose. This is not an over hopped beer but spiced nicely with hops. If you are looking for a ‘bomb’ this isn’t it. Finishes on the palate nice and balanced with a piney taste. I enjoyed this IPA.
