Val and I took a trip to Maine and Boston last year and we stopped at Aeronaut after they released this collaboration beer with Finback. Let’s see how it was.
Style: New England IPA
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Somerville is a city located directly to the northwest of Boston, and north of Cambridge, in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. As of 2010, the United States Census listed the city with a total population of 75,754 people, making it the most densely populated municipality in New England. As of 2010, it was the 16th most densely populated incorporated municipality in the country. Somerville was established as a town in 1842, when it was separated from Charlestown. In 2006, the city was named the best-run city in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. In 1972, in 2009, and again in 2015, the city received the All-America City Award. It is home to Tufts University, which has its campus along the Somerville and Medford border.
Random: I bought a shirt at Aeronaut and it’s a beautiful green color and really soft.
The beer poured with a two finger, pure white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and bright yellow with no visible carbonation. The nose had a lot of orange notes and grapefruit. The taste started with orange as well. It had a creamsicle note that came with a lot of vanilla. The body was very light with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with orange. I liked this beer a lot and would definitely have this again.
