We like getting homebrew sent to us and for this episode of the series, we received a NEIPA from a guy in New England – Pete from New Hampshire. Being from the region, we expected a nice example of the style. Check out this video of Exchange number thirty six:
Pete didn’t disappoint. This New England Style India Pale Ale hit all the points that you want these beers to hit. The look had a nice pale, hazy color with a thick white head. The aroma had a pleasant peach and slight pineapple overtone to it. In the flavor, there was a zesty citrus in the background but overall the peach-like component was the strongest element to the profile.
The mouthfeel was soft and not dense like other versions of the style we have had. It was very drinkable and had a lot of tasty hop flavors to make you want to drink more.
We really enjoyed this beer. Thanks Pete for sending it to us. Brew on!
