I attended a charity dinner last night where I was fortunate enough to taste the fabulous Focal Banger by the popular Vermont brewery, The Alchemist. The brewery doesn’t sell outside its immediate market so it was a treat to be able to taste it in my home state of New Jersey.
Hazy and medium golden in the glass, this American IPA offers aromas of spruce and citrus. Very hoppy with bitter aftertaste in the best possible was. Herbal, citrus and floral taste with a medium, crisp body.
