456. Squatters IPA
This one came from one of my long time followers in the Seacoast NH area. We trade beer and meet up for drinks occasionally and recently met up at WHYM Craft Beer Cafe in Portsmouth. Had never heard of Squatters as they are based in Utah but I am always up for trying a new IPA.
This beer was fairly fresh with a bottle date of 4/16, considering it came from Utah that is not terrible. Beer pours a nice orange with ample off white head. Aroma was OK with some floral and pine hops. Taste was kind of subdued with a nice mix of hops but a significant and almost overpowering malt backbone. Overall the beer was good but nothing special when compared with the hundreds of other IPAs out there.
