If you look at the label of Sea Hag from New England Brewing Co., you might question what on Earth this beer must taste like. With the name Sea Hag, you can’t help but tilt your head and wonder why anyone would name a beer something like that.
Sea Hag is a 6.2% IPA out of Woodbridge, CT. The name comes from a ghost that is said to haunt New Haven, CT. Spooky? A bit. Delicious? Oh, yes.
This is a pretty well balanced IPA, not depending on mostly hops or mostly malt for the flavor. You can taste the just-floral-enough hops side by side with the earthiness of the malt. Theirs is a slight bitterness in the after taste when drank out of a can, but when poured into a glass you don’t notice at all. In the glass, you get to see a really rich dark amber color along with a pretty great head on top.
I must say, I’m pretty excited to finish the rest of this six pack.
Rating: 3.6 out of 5 (Definitely worth a try and a recommended buy)
