Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance - Nice, hazy orangeish hue. Not a big head, maybe a finger, which
dissipated fairly quickly. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma - Lots of pine and some earthy / herbal notes. Definite hop kick in the
face which I like. Some citrus notes and slight hint of sweet malts.
Taste and Mouthfeel - Very smooth and drinkable IPA. Again, big hop character
with some sweet malt. Leaves the palate a little dry. Nicely carbonated and
alcohol is nicely hidden. Drank it pretty cold and pretty fast so didn't let the
alcohol come out too much.
Overall - Nice IPA. My favorite style and this was worthy. Glad I scored a
couple bottles of this and looking forward to my next one.
Wachusett Brewing Company
Wachusett Brewery founders Ned, Kevin and Quinny developed a significant
appreciation for beer while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Adventures in biking, canoeing, and hiking that led the trio to the northern New
England states allowed them to visit some of the first operating craft
breweries. Armed with a "we can do this" attitude the three cast off from their
careers in engineering and biology to found the Wachusett Brewing Co. in 1993.
Wachusett Country Ale was introduced to beer fans of Massachusetts the next year
after lots of experimenting to get the formula just right. When Wachusett
opened, the three designed and built most of the equipment; did the brewing and
filling, selling and delivering, and everything else that a small startup
Ned, Kevin and Quinny are now backed by some of the most passionate and capable
co-workers in the industry. Wachusett Ales continue to be hand crafted with the
finest ingredients available, bottled and kegged in our Westminster facility.
The three have never strayed from their plan to brew and sell the freshest,
highest quality beers possible.
