This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Keg at The Reservoir - Waterbury, VT. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds pale citrus fruits, pale bread, some anise, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with some lightly dried citrus, in particular tangerine and grapefruit, with pale bready malts beneath. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with further pale malt sweetness, low bitterness, nicely juicy and citrusy hops. Very, very well balanced. Solid.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
On tap @ Fiddlehead. Lightly hazed golden beer with white foam. Pretty nice citrus hop character, peach, and some pine. A light bitterness. Lots of bread and a touch of melon. Mild malt sweetness and biscuit malts. It’s not bad. Pretty basic and easy drinking. Relatively approachable.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-29. Crisp dark yellow orange, modest head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, bit of a melange of grassy orange that I can’t quite tease apart. Flavour is similar melange of flavours, lightly leafy, modest citrus hops. Works well, good amount of hop flavour but not overwhelmingly bitter. Average plus body. Solid, very drinkable. Sampled at the brewery

DuffMan (9592) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap @ Jays Peak in Vermont. Hazy orange body, thin off white head that leaves a delicate web of lace. Aroma is mostly pine with a flash of citrus. The palat delivers oily piney hops on a cushion of lightly sweet malts. Long bitter finish. Surprisingly excellent!

j12601 (9562) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at the brewery tasting room when I stopped here with Max on the way to Hill Farmstead’s Harvest Festival. Pours an amber gold with a touch of haze under a thin white head. A touch catty up front, floral, citrus hops. Crisp malt, long earthy notes. Earthy quinine bitterness. Long crisp bitterness. Decent enough, but we both thought the VPA was a better beer.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 My Bottom Line :
This crisp, citrusy IPA delivers polished honeyed malts and leafy hop resins for a textbook example of Americana.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the clear golden-amber..
-The finishing bitterness is leveled to the rest of the brew’s medium intensity.
-The body is on the dry side, which is fine by me. Leaves more room for the hops to be showcased and increases drinkability.
-Hop fruitiness is grapefruity and also reminiscent of pink peppercorns at times.
-This may not be the most memorable example, but it is perfectly rendered and flavorful from beginning to end. I would have it often were to live in northern Vermont.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Burlington and at Brewster River Grill & Brewery, in Jeffersonville.
