I'm sure not many of you have tried this because you can only get Wachuestt Brewing's new IPA in their mixed twelve packs. It's one of their new brews celebrating their 15th anniversary like the Hometown Haze.
You may be wondering how Wachuestt's California IPA is different form their regular one. The answer is it's an American style IPA, (a more passionate one). It pours with a medium head that quickly dissipates and you'll notice the head is fragrant hops. Taking a sip brings it up a notch because the hops on the palate has more of a bite instead of the floral version in the head. With the strong hops taste the body is crisp and you can feel it in the back of your throat as well. After swallowed and the zest resolves you’re left with a hint of the initial hops.
Wachusett’s new IPA is certainly better than their standard one and I can’t wait for them to put this in its own six pack. It’s a B (good) despite being a little simple because it’s easy to drink and enjoy unlike other intense American style IPAs.
