CONSENSUS • NE IPA • 7.6% Juicy, hop-forward New England style IPA.
HOP SECRET • DOUBLE IPA • 8% This is an east/west coast hybrid IPA using Vic Secret Australian hops, with a little traditional bitterness but still nice and juicy.
MAGGIE MULLEN • NE IPA • 7.6% Hop forwarded with a trio of hops, creating subtle pineapple notes.
LAUNCH • DOUBLE IPA • 8% Launch is a juicy New England Style IPA with low bitterness and a clean citrus flavor.
THE RAVEN • PORTER • 6% This chocolate raspberry porter is not at all sweet. Three dark malts are used – the highest percentage is the chocolate malt giving it this distinct flavor.
BREAKFAST IN BED • STOUT • Maple coffee stout, with dark roast coffee, vanilla beans, cocoa nibs and dark maple syrup from Rick’s Sugar Shack right down the road here in town.
SAMPLES ONLY: SWEET JANE 6 • NE IPA • 7.6% MILKSHAKE STYLE: The banana flavor from the hops combination plus added GRAPEFRUIT ZEST this time and vanilla create a balanced, creamy new NE IPA (contains lactose).
