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.

Fiddlehead IPA is a very tasty drinkable beer. I have been a fan of Longtrail, Magic Hat, and Harpoon and recently Switchback. This beer is better than all of them. Good people at the brewery, going to be a very successful brewery for years to come.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2014 On tap at Pizza Stone. Cloudy Golden color with white head. Tropical fruit and piney aromas. Sweet caramel mallt start followed with tropical fruit flavors and finishing with a pine resiny hoppiness. Excellent IPA.

Nice IPA, especially for a new brewery. Not much to add to the other reviews here. Nice hoppy aroma, tastes citrus and piney with a bitter ending. Had it on tap at the Reservoir.

Golden IPA. Crisp, smooth, and light bodied. Hoppy with a bit of citrus. A solid IPA.

Another pretty awesome IPA from Vermont. The gold color is almost startling - not used to seeing that. The very abundant citrus aromas and clean finish make this an above average new IPA.

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!

Lukaduke (1992) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Draft at ProPig. Solid IPA. Poours golden with a finger of tigth white foam. Aromas are tropical with a touch of sweet clean malt and pine. Palate follows the nose with a well balanced easy drinking body. Solid IPA and if this was in Maine it would be a highlight in the local IPA scene !

This beer was very, very good. Dry, hoppy, and full flavor. Exactly what a good IPA tastes like. Definitely worth a try and a trip for.
