Beer Review: Lord Hobo Boom Sauce

Boom Sauce from Lord Hobo Brewing is a New England style IPA from the Massachusetts brewer and the subject of this latest review. Coming in with an ABV of 7.8% and an IBU of 78, this beer definitely has had a lot of hype around it and so I was looking forward to checking it out to see how it compares.

Highlighted by a nice golden straw color, the beer did hit on many things of the style. It wasn’t as juicy as some of the others that I have had from the style, but it was juicy enough and carried a nice refreshing quality to it. The six hops used did create a nice balance and the bitterness does come through making you feel the level of the IBUs. But all in all, the beer provided a nice overall experience as well as a nice palatable experience, leading me to a total score of 86 for this one.
