No, I didn’t steal today’s beer, but maybe I should have!

Lord Hobo Brewing Company’s back on the Windowsill for the fourth time! The Massachusetts-based brewery picked a fun name for this one. Steal this Can. I was unable to nail down if the name is inspired by the 1971 Abbie Hoffman novel Steal this Book, or the 2002 System of a Down album “Steal this Album,” but I imagine it’s one or the other. Depends on whether owner Daniel Lanigan is more of a rocker or a reader. You’ll have to ask him!

Steal this Can is a “West Coast-inspired IPA” brewed with Chinook, Zeus and Centennial hops (and a mystery fourth hop variety). Aromas of pine and citrus hit the nose up front, and the bready, bitter flavor is quite tasty on the tongue. It’s got some good mouthfeel to it, too. Nice, solid IPA from Lord Hobo. So, how about it? Are you going to Steal this Can?
