In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Prison City Riot in '29

Aroma: “Herbal. Pineapple and citrus peel but also a lot of grassy, wet, hay, and earthy hop aroma. Lemon, lemon grass, and a touch of bubblegum.”

Flavor: “Great chewy balanced IPA, not overwhelmingly complex, but everything comes together nicely. The hops character leans toward grassy notes with a nice wet hay, tangerine, and lemon-tart quality. Finish is a little heavy, but bitter enough that it doesn’t come across sweet.”

Overall: “Some citrus acidity makes this beer very refreshing. Leans to tropical fruits making this is a good introduction to New England-Style IPAs because it has all the attributes expected of the style.”
