Tonight I will be indulging in a 6 pack of the Flower Child IPA by Cambridge Brewing Company, located in Cambridge, MA.
I normally try to not drink 6 beers on a Monday night, but I have a fantasy football draft at 8:30 so I thought this would be a good opportunity to write my first 6 pack review while also giving myself an excuse for drafting poorly.
Beer One - 8:00PM
Beer Two - 8:25PM
IPA #1 has the hands nice and steady for this draft. SO unprepared for it though. I spent 15 minutes picking out this IPA at the liquor store and did almost no research beforehand. Beer #2 tastes IDENTICAL to Beer #1, so that’s good.
Beer Three - 8:47PM
Really starting to sweat. Think it has more to do with the draft than the IPAs though. These IPAs have become a safety valve for me under the immense pressure. On a lighter note, the beer has proven to pair very well with Doritos Cool Ranch chips, though I challenge you to find me something that doesn't! Love Doritos.
Beer Four - 9:05PM
They’re going down a little too quick at this point. The 6.5% alcohol leads to a nice drinkability with this IPA. Every sip has been smooth and tasty.
Beer Five - 9:29PM
Not much has changed since Beer 4, so I’ll comment on the label art. Love the uniqueness of the purple can & packaging. 'Flower Child' is not a name I would normally be drawn to, but this 6 pack was hard to miss in the store. After drinking a few the name makes more sense, as the different flavors come together to give a nice flowery sensation in my mouth. I’m not a huge fan of the hippy girl & type-face, but it fits the beer pretty well. There’s a lot of nature in this can. W/e that means.
Beer Six - 10:04PM
Hindsight is 20/20 but I definitely drank these too fast. This beer is extremely easy to drink. I'm definitely a fan. It was smooth and delicious, and I don't even feel like complete shit have drinking 6 of them. Would definitely recommend.
Note: Afterwards, I went down to the convenience store and bought a bag of Peanut M&Ms (sharing size) and ate all of them. Next time I will be sure to drink more water in hopes of avoiding this purchase, or at the very least buying the normal size bag.
FINAL VERDICT: 8.7 / 10
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
