First Brewed: 1995
The Wachusett IPA is an American IPA brewed by The Wachusett Brewing Company in Westminster, MA. At approximately 5.60% ABV is a hoppy delight which leaves ones taste buds satisfied, but wanting more. On first pour you get a nice gold color which settles to a creamy white head which stays consistently at the same level as you drink it. The body is light and creamy. When it comes to taste this IPA is hard to beat, it is very hoppy, but also has a citrus like taste that is mixed with bitterness.
Overall a great beer which is available year round. It also comes in a light variation called, Light IPA. Wachusett’s light IPA is the worlds first Light IPA with only 121 calories and ABV of 4.0%
OFFICIAL SCORE: 4/5
