Urban Lumberjack by Westfax Brewing Co. is a New England IPA and is being evaluated as a Specialty IPA (category 21B in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). New England IPAs are known for their juicy/tropical fruit/citrusy hop forward character, hazy appearance, and lighter than typical American IPA bitterness. Urban Lumberjack is brewed with 6 hop varieties (Citra, Azacca, Eldorado, Amarillo, Simcoe and Mandarina Bavaria).

Urban Lumberjack pours extremely hazy with an orange color and a small clingy, white head. Prominent juicy hops greet the aroma with tropical fruit, peach, and mango notes. The flavor is similarly hop aggressive with flavors of tangerine, peach and mango; a hint of malt provides backdrop. This beer finishes moderately bitter with a lingering tropical fruit and herbal hop flavor. Urban Lumberjack is definitely a beer for the hopheads among us; it is aggressively hopped and well brewed. Enjoy!
