SOFT MACHINE

New England IPA - 6.9%

Medusa's first definitive foray into our region's indigenous style of India Pale Ale, SOFT MACHINE is crafted with Maine-grown 2-Row and an extra-healthy potion of flaked oats and wheat to promote a soft, smooth mouthfeel and that telltale haze. Yeast-driven stonefruit esters are intertwined with vibrant tropical citrus fruit notes from the dry-hopping trifecta of Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic.

Locally-Hopped Imperial IPA - 7.8%

Explore the brewing terroir of Massachusetts! Friendly Territory's pale, dry body is crafted with New England-grown 2-row barley and features an array of hops from Four Star Farms (Northfield, MA): an alluring blend of Centennial, Crystal, Cascade, Magnum, Mt. Rainier, Pepite, and Chaos, resulting in lush aromas of tropical citrus with a crisp herbal background.

LIGHTRUNNER

New England IPA - 6.4%

ALBATROSS! (TOPAZ / SOUTHERN CROSS)

American IPA - 6.3%

ALBATROSS! is our rotating series of American-style IPAs hopped exclusively with Southern Hemipshere varieties from Australia and New Zealand. The hop-growing terroir of these countries has taken the beer-drinking world by storm with their remarkable array of intense, fruity and tropical hops that marry well with modern interpretations of the India Pale Ale style. The core of Albatross is a simple base of New England-grown 2-row and German malted wheat, but it's the ever-evolving cast of unique hops that make each batch an exciting new experiment for your palate!

CUP OF WONDER

New England IPA - 6.5%

Another entry in our evolving series of New England-style India Pale Ales, built from Maine-grown 2-Row as well as flaked oats and wheat, fermented with our house yeast strain. Upon this dense, impenetrably hazy foundation, we've liberally hopped the beer with a combination of Citra, Mandarina Bavaria, Hull Melon, and Motueka, yielding an intriguing array of tropical fruit, berry, and melon notes.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $6 | 16 oz.  $7 ♦  CANS: $16/ 4-pack | $96 / case

Zweihänder

Imperial IPA - 8.4%

This two-fisted Imperial IPA wields prodigious amounts of orange, tangerine, and melon character supplied by the unusual German hop varieties of Mandarina Bavaria and Hull Melon, supported by the intense tropical citrus of Citra and Azacca hops. The malt bill takes a minimalist approach, built for a clean and dry body that lets its hop character pierce through.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $7 ♦  CANS: $16/ 4-pack | $96 / case

SOMEWHITHER: BLACKBERRY & ApRICOT

Kettle Sour with Fruit - 5.5%

Mashed with a mixture of New England-grown 2-row and German wheat malts, this sour ale was inoculated with a Lactobacillus culture and allowed to develop acidity overnight in the kettle.  For this batch, we blended in pureed blackberries and apricots during fermentation for an end result that strikes a balance between fruity and tart, with a crisp, dry body.   

5 oz. $3 | .4 L  $6 ♦  Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

BAD OMEN

Belgian Pale Ale w/Cherries & Raspberries - 7.5%

Sometimes our Belgian-style Pale Ale GOOD OMEN takes a turn for the sinister after a diabolical infusion of pureed raspberries and cherries, transforming it into BAD OMEN. The signature fruity esters, derived from a classic Trappist yeast strain, dovetail nicely with the red berry notes. Slightly tart, with a perception of sweetness before a dry finish.

5 oz. $3 | .4 L  $6 ♦  Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

SUMMON THE QUEEN!
