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.
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.
