Larry Imperial IPA Brewed by Wachusett Brewing

Larry Imperial IPA brewed by Wachusett Brewing in Westminster, Massachusetts

Larry Imperial IPA is a 22 once celebration of friendship and beer. The first beer of our Publick House Series, is a generously hopped, unequivocally handsome Imperial IPA named Larry. His citrus and floral notes perfectly balance out his bitter side, making him both sensitive and strong. In case you're wondering, the beer's name, "Larry", is a reference to Publick House employee Larry Melia, who "charmed the Wachusett staff during a visit to their brewery." Who doesn't want a big hoppy brew named after them! Brewed with Amarillo, Chinook, Simcoe, Magnum and Centennial hops. Malts consist of American Two Row, Crystal and Munich. 8.5% ABV - 85 IBUs.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Gorgeous light orange that just looks like it's bursting with overripe citrus juice. Not too much head and only moderately sticky lacing, but still, the beer looks so inviting.

Aroma: Ironically - given the taste - the maltiest part of this beer is the aroma it gives off. A nice toasted biscuit complements mild hop juice, mostly of the grapefruit variety.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Pure bliss, all kinds of juicy stone fruit and hop nectar. The IBUs make their presence felt by bruising your tongue throughout the finish yet leave your mouth begging for more. Tight carbonation keeps things sharp. Superb.

Overall: I just can't get over how good this beer is, especially given that I accidentally stumbled across while waiting to buy some New England Gandhi-Bot next door at their brewery. Everything's in line, the can is a perfect serving vessel, if this was distributed to 8 more states it would be sought after by everyone.

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 brewery needed.

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.
