I’ve recently expanded my territory and travels to include Massachusetts so you can expect to see more beers from that area. My recent trip included growlers from Riverwalk, Berkshire and Newburyport Brewing as well as some Jacks Abby bottles.
This growler from Riverwalk was their IPA. When I start drinking beer from a new brewery I usually start with their pale ale or IPA as they are the two styles I drink most often. Riverwalk IPA has a great orange color with a thick white head. Excellent lacing on the glass and overall just a nice looking beer. The aroma and taste both lean toward the earthy, spicy, floral instead of the citrus that many IPAs have.

Pros: Great mix of floral, spicy hops
Alcohol Content: 6.75% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 84

This beer is great for those who want to
