In Massachusetts, 2011 was a banner year for breweries. Eight fantastic breweries that opened that year.

One of those breweries was Idle Hands Craft Ales, started by husband and wife team Chris and Grace Tkach, a brewery that specializes in Belgian-inspired ales.

Their flagship is Pandora, a Belgian pale ale that comes in at 6 percent alcohol by volume.

The Pandora combines a spicy/fruity character from the Belgiain yeast with the bitter, citrusy hop flavors.

Not a huge fan typically of hoppy Belgian ales – I don’t find that the flavors blend together, but the Pandora is an exception.The hops work well, blending with the peppery spiciness from the yeast.

Overall, I’d recommend picking up a 750 ml of this and giving this a try.
