  14. Baxter Bootleg FireworksRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Dec 16 | Lowell Sun

    It's about time... it's about time, Baxter! This double IPA and the newest release from our friends way up in Lewiston, Maine, is an amusingly named hop bomb, as the label loudly proclaims that this "isn't balanced" and contains a warning that the beer "produces thunderous eruptions of hoppiness"... this is certainly not a beer with much subtlety if the label is to be trusted! This brewery's always been a bit underrated in my opinion. If you've read my review, you know I have a soft spot for their Hayride Autumn Ale, and I find their Stowaway IPA to be mildly underrated; it's a nicely produced East Coast IPA with a sticky pine-like finish and a good malt flavor, and it's rather easily-available.
