Face Hugger is an 6.8% alcohol by volume American IPA made by New England Brewing Company in Woodbridge, Connecticut.

The Can

Face Hugger is served in a 12 ounce can. On one side of the label, some dude is getting his face eaten off by a mutant parasitic spider hop. The other side of the can says:

"You have been selected as the host for this assaultingly delicious American-style IPA. Hear the calling. The citus and candied apricot flavors launched by the blend of Simcoe and Amarillo hops are all up in your face. Bring some inside and taste your fate. In space, no one can hear you drink."


The Beer

Face Hugger had clearish yellow/orange color with fat, foamy head of bubbles when poured into a glass. It had a strong hoppy bite to it with flavors of citrus and apricot from the Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Overall it's a solid IPA. I look forward to trying more beers from New England Brewing Company in the future!
