Bissel Brothers Brewing The Substance New England IPA

The Substance from Bissel Brothers Brewing Co. flirts with the new world IPA style in a way that intrigues and compels, adding complexity and not detracting from the beer. It does have notes of tropical citrus, but it is still first and foremost “dank” with a perceived bitterness that contributes to an overall balanced experience.
