Brewery: Medford Brewing Company
MBC's The Phantom is 16oz of a fairly smooth and crispy golden haze voyage. Yarrr.
Type of Beer: New England IPA
Interestingly enough, Phantom is brewed by Riverwalk Brewing about 40 miles north of Medford in Newburyport, MA. Phantom doesn't overpower any of the senses. Some fruit, some hoppiness, some booze, some body.
Pirate and Nautical beer can themes always please us, no matter how abstract the artwork, which Phantom's is not.
Medford Brewing's Beer Description (on can)
Captain Peterson boasted The Phantom "had never been beaten on a wind by any vessel" and once sailed from the Equator to San Francisco in 15 days. Our Phantom can hold her own with any NEIPA on the waters. She's a citrusy, hazy beer loaded up with hop flavors and aromas, tasty and smooth enough to make you ask how it went by you so fast.

Final thoughts on Phantom
Not too bad. Enjoyed one whilst operating the grill and cooking beer brats. It was about 73deg out and the sun was shining and the beer was had and general enjoyment for all.
