Lancaster Brewing Company Boss Hog
At Al's of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Lancaster Brewing Boss Hog, a Double IPA. The beer pours a copper color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, lemon, and sugar. The taste is caramel and bitey grapefruit. There is a light lemon finish with an orange accent and hints of rye. The alcohol content is 10.10% ABV. I find that most of the Lancaster beers have the light rye undertone, so this beer was most discernible as Lancaster's. I thought the beer was surprisingly good, as I don't overly enjoy most of Lancaster's line-up. If you have the chance to try the Boss Hog, give it a shot.
