Green Monsta IPA

I picked up a bottle of Green Monsta IPA by Wachusett Brewing pretty much because I'd never had the beer - or beer from this brewer, in fact - and I like IPA. That's as good enough a reason as any to buy a beer.

Don'tcha think?

Green Monsta IPA (6.0% ABV)

Pours a hazy amber color with a floofy big head that leaves behind decent lacing (even in my non-glass glass).

The aroma is hoppy with a sweet malt presence.  Not a big aroma, though.

The taste is kind of a sweet hoppy IPA.  The hop presence is kind of floral, kind of grassy and hardly citrussy.  It's not super bitter and has plenty of malt character.  It finishes dry with a touch of bitterness and lingering malty sweetness.

The mouthfeel is light to medium with great effervescence.

Green Monsta IPA is a pretty drinkable brew.  Refreshing and tasty.  A middle of the road IPA that's good for just about anyone.

Overall: Good
