8/11/2010: Jared always sends me some really good extras. This was one of those said extras. I have never tried any beer from Wachusett brewing, and quite honestly don’t know a lot about them so lets see how this goes!

Larry IPA is very citrus smelling, and has a very nice foamy head. This beer was more on the hoppy end of the scale rather than malty. Usually this would kill a beer for me, but the hops were all very fruity, lots of citrus and some grapefruit. No real piney hop flavor to speak of which is good since its not my favorite characteristic in a beer. Very light bodied for the style, but so is the ABV (7.5%) so that was to be expected. Very well carbonated which help alleviate some of the bitterness. Thanks again for this extra Jared!

Picture of the day: I wish meat was packaged like this in my local grocery store.

  1. I like this beer. The rest of the Wachusett lineup has been…. uninspiring…. to say the least. This one however, I thought, was a nice solid double IPA. Sounds like your taste in hops matches mine with the anti-piney feeling.

    • I have to agree with you, other than Larry, most of the other Wachusett stuff is mostly bland.

  2. I knew you weren’t a piney hop fan, so I figured this would work well. Sorry to hear about the relationship. Shit happens, hopefully you guys can work it out. At least beer still loves you.

    • Thanks Jared! Haha this is true, at least beer will never hang me out to dry.
