Jeremy, Matt, and I went to Colorado and Las Vegas in early April. We had beers and some nachos at the Beer Works in Logan Airport while we were waiting for our flight.

This IPA pours a hazed copper, and is topped by a white head that fades to film leaving good lace. The aroma has notes of raw sugar, and toasty malts. There's also a good amount of herbal, resiny hops.

Sweet, toasty, and bready malts upfront move into a citric center with notes of raw sugar and then into an herbal, piney, hop bitterness. This beer is smooth and medium-bodied with moderate carbonation

I though this beer was pretty well balanced, and overall was a decent IPA.
