COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Damico (2790) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2015
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?

Clownoisseur (344) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
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!

malrubius (2014) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 18, 2014
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.

Tap at mount snow. Clear Amber pour with a big white head. Pine, grapefruit, floral, caramel. Medium body. Very well balanced, and an awesome beer after a day of ski. Very smooth finish with a lot of flavor.

Tasty fresh ipa on tap at the brewery. Yellow bodied. Good drinkability. Above average mouthfeel.

PhatB420 (714) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 29, 2014
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.

Berard (421) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Growler. Pours murky brown with a thin head that dissipates. Nice hop aroma over light carbonation. This is a solid single ipa. Some complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
