Down The Road Beer Co. Announces Limited Edition Queequeg’s Revenge New England IPA
EVERETT, MA – With the upcoming opening of its Everett-based Taproom, Down The Road Brewery is excited to announce the release of Queequeg’s Revenge – a citrusy New England IPA. The 7% turbid ale makes liberal use of Pacifica, Green Bullet and Motueka, three fresh strains of juicy hops from New Zealand.
Over the past 10 years, New England IPAs have exploded in popularity. Queequeg’s Revenge is true to style with hazy turbidity, low bitterness and smooth mouthfeel. The bright hop profile features a blast of citrus, tropical fruit and floral spiciness. Fresh, smooth and aromatic, this is a NEIPA for hop lovers who are looking for something new.
Queequeg, the tattooed harpooner from Melville’s Moby Dick, was a natural muse for this epic beer. Ishmael’s friend and shipmate was the king of his home island off the coast of modern day New Zealand. Queequeg’s Revenge is our opportunity to make a hero of this amazing literary character who is too often resigned to a supporting role.
Queequeg’s Revenge is a limited release available in 16oz cans and on draft. The New England India Pale Ale will be available throughout Eastern Massachusetts beginning next week. Down The Road will also be pouring its newest beer at its Everett Tap Room upon opening to the public later this spring.
