3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very interesting beer. The aroma is deep with peppery piney hops and on the palate the hops are very complex and bitter, however the malt backbone is weak. It’s not out of balance per we, but it needs something more. The hop profile alone earns points.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours translucent golden almost orange with a nice bright head. Aroma brings some skunky hop pellets and is a bit perfumey. Flavor of the hops is a bit spicy and piney with a dry but satiating ending.

On tap at the Cliff House on top of Stowe Mtn. Awesome time to have this beer. The sun was streamin in through the window of the lodge making the beer glow a hazy golden yellow/orange. White head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Slight dankness. Taste was sweet with a nearly non existent bitterness. Smooth, soft, and refreshing.

On tap @ Hotel Vermont. Danky pine with light citrus and floral arrangement. Hops are very nose pleasant with a bitter bite finish. Pours golden with light head and very enjoyable. Can they even make a bad beer in VT?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Mule Bar in Winooski,VT. Pour was a honey-orange color, thin white head that stayed as a cap. Aromas of light citrus, light pine...some peach/mango...and then light malted sweetness. Taste is light but balanced. Nice juicy hops give a soft tropical taste upfront before a nice earthy pine bite moves into the finish. Very drinkable stuff. Wish I could grab this everyday!

On tap at Pizza Stone a while back. Just found my note, nice and clearly written. Must have been my first beer. Golden with chill haze flat head and lace. Grapefruity hop aroma. Very mild peach apricot sweetness with medium assertive grapefruit rind and spicy bitterness accentuated by effervescent carbo and dry finish. Medium light body. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from brewery into a large stemmed tulip glass. Pours a dark hazy, rusted bronze orange. Lacing is medium, plentiful, and soft. Sticks all over, and expands. Aroma is fresh pine, soft cedar, hoppy floral exchanges, and more hops. Taste is piney, hoppy, earthy, fresh, and enjoyable. A most definite example of the style, bitter on the tounge, and in the aftertaste, but the hop presence keeps one content. Vermont beer at its best.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Pours murky brown with a thin head that dissipates. Nice hop aroma over light carbonation. This is a solid single ipa. Some complexity.
