Wachusett Brewing Company Larry Imperial IPA

The Wachusett Brewing Company has been operating since 1994 in Westminster, Massachusetts.

This 7.5% ABV beer is made in conjunction with the Publick House (a beer bar in the brewery's area).  The beer pours an amber, orange, copper in color with a tall quarter-inch head of off-white foam.  The aroma is rich and creamy fruits.  The taste is richly hoppy and malty, with more hop than malt.  Creamy, round fruits on a solid malt base, slightly sweet and dense like a scone, with a finish of fruity tartness and light grassy bitterness.  This drinks incredibly smooth, creamy and non-bitter for an 85 IBU beer.  There is some lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
