Once again BeerBasics.com goes to the Henry Street Ale House to see if Liars Bench Young Upstart IPA, from Portsmouth, NH, can Meet Expectations.

The beer used for the tasting was purchased at the Liars Bench Brewing Co. a few weeks before the beer tasting. You can be sure it was well taken care of over that short time.

This was one of the more confusing beer tastings that we have done. The combination of specific hops and the fruit and spruce flavors were interesting but seemed to stumble all over each other.
