Harpoon Brewery Of Boston Introduces ‘The Long Thaw’
More new brews news, this time from Harpoon Brewery, a craft beer maker based in Boston, Massachusetts. They’ve just released their new seasonal called, “The Long Thaw”. Even though I haven’t tried it, I love the name.
So, what is “The Long Thaw” all about? Here’s a brief product description form harpoonbrewery.com:
““Spring” in New England is a fickle friend. So we brewed a beer that could carry us through the January cold while hinting at warmer days ahead. With notes of orange peel and coriander, the soft mouthfeel of a Belgian wit, and an intense hop profile, The Long Thaw White IPA combines the warming backbone of an IPA with citrus notes indicative of the coming spring.
The Long Thaw White IPA style blends the spiciness of a Belgian Wit and the American hop character of an IPA.
Appearance: light colored, hazy, thick white head
Aroma: very citrusy, floral, and spicy from the ground coriander
Mouth feel: soft mouth feel with a clean finish. Light to medium bodied.
Taste: Medium bitterness, fruit and citrus flavors from the hops and orange peel, and spicy from the coriander. A little bready / biscuity malt and wheat character.
Finish: fruity, spicy, a little bitter, but clean and refreshing.”
