On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and floral hops. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Sweeter and not as hoppy as the other Bobcat IPA (Falconer’s Flight) I got to sample. But still pretty good overall.

Draft at the brewpub - Pours a slightly hazy medium amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is citrus/pine hoppy with the slightest of malt structure. Flavor is fairly citrus/grapefruit hoppy and medium bitter. Bitterness lingers into the finish. Just an average IPA, but very drinkable...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 In short: A toasted, caramelized and piney-citrusy golden IPA. Clean and pleasant. Archetypical example of the style.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear golden body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is typical basic American golden IPA. citrusy hops, piney notes, a certain toastiness. The hopping comes out a lot stronger in mouth than in the aroma and the roles are reversed with the pine-tree coming out stronger than the citrus fruits. A nice toasted caramelized cereals backbone. A very clean IPA offering a solid long-lasting bitterness and a strong toastiness creating a dry sensation in the finish. Unoriginal but quite enjoyable. Nice beer to session during a quiet evening in Bristol Vermont, and is there another type of evening in Bristol Vermont?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at the brewpub. Clear light bronze with a small diminishing head...juicy, fruity nose leant interest by the touches of whiskey and vanilla late...body on the dryish side, with a pleasant peachy-apple undertone throughout....intense, mouthpuckering bitterness at the finish, with faint woody notes...nice, balanced, drinkable IPA with a delicate butter-cookie sweetness late helping to keep it from roughing you up too much...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 The Lure:
A ring of foam circles the reddish amber hues. Exotic, resinous hoppiness carries the nostrils from citrus fruit to candied ginger roots. A few butterscotch knots seem to hold the hoppy framework together.
Galant fruity malts introduce a silky equilibrium to the green, floral and citrusy hoppiness. Mangoes, starfruit, lime, lemon and pink grapefruit all thrive wonderfully amidst this greenhouse of liveliness, yet never attack the tongue with zealousness.
Discovering a wild hop grove while hiking through the jungle is always an exhilarating moment for the senses.
