As we close out the first month of 2018, I was able to find my first favorite beer of the new year. Wrench from Industrial Arts Brewing is, quite possibly, the closest thing to perfection in the New England IPA category. Not only its hazy color, but the citrus notes are on point in this beer. Although I am partial to those New England IPAs brewed in New Jersey, the three beers that come close to Wrench include: Hazy Crazy Diamond (Death of the Fox), Brewtus Juice (Lunacy), and Juiced (River Horse). If you ever come across Wrench at a bar or liquor store, it will not last very long.
