Eight Pounds Per BBL by Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery was pleasant, easy drinking beer judged as a BJCP category 21B - Specialty IPA: New England IPA. Initial aroma was of a light citrus hop followed by bready, crackery malt and green leafy notes and orange, citrus esters. This beer was super hazy and opaque, with a huge white head, fine bubbles that were long-lasting and a murky golden color. It had nice citrusy, estery flavors and a light citrus hop flavor with very low hop bitterness in the finish blended with light sweetness from malt and lingering esters. A very nicely balanced beer between malt and hops with big estery hops upfront yet lightly bittered. A  wonderful beer to sit and drink with appetizers while watching your favorite football game.
