Squam Brewing is a very small one man operation in Holderness, New Hampshire. Brewer/Owner John Glidden makes a variety of styles and all are solid beers. This one is the Golden IPA which does a nice job of describing the color. Also comes with a nice white head and a very appealing aroma even though it is not your typical IPA aroma. There is a nice mix of floral hops and some fruit that I can’t quite place; not the usual citrus, grapefruit but something else. Guess I need to eat more fruit so I can better place these aromas.
Taste is solid for a single IPA with a nice sweet start and then plenty of citrus and floral hops. Well balanced and very easy to drink. Overall I was very pleased with this IPA from Squam and look forward to trying the other beers John makes.
