Fresh growler. The subdued nose features mild hay, pine and floral hints with a spicy hint nearly hidden beneath. Semi-occluded light lemon color. Juicy tangerine bites initially on the taste with pine resin, mild alfalfa and a strong grapefruit juice bitterness to close. The bitterness is quite assertive but the juiciness evens it out. A delicious DIPA.

Draft at W.o.R’s. Poured a slightly cloudy dirty straw gold with a dense white head. Aroma is dank hop resin, cat piss, dry citrus. Flavor is similar but a step up, awesome actually, notes of dank hops, light weed, rotting citrus, cat piss and tropical fruit. Awesome beer.

Draft at Hill Farmstead. Pours a nice yellow light orange color with an off white head. Aroma is a bit more mild, but could be because I had Abner right before. Nice juicy fleshy fruit hop flavor. Excellent body without any bitterness bite. Very well done.

Growler received in trade. Pours very hazy orangish yellow with a rather big frothy white head that leaves some thick sticky lacing in the glass while dissipating. Smell I fruity with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, pink grapefruit juice, kumquats, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals, bergamot and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter and fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent, very tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, white bread, several different kinds of grapefruit, star fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles and lemon zest. Mouth-smacking grapefruit goodness. Clean and great! Yummy!

(Bottle) Pours hazy orange golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds boat loads of spicy grapefruit with undertones of resinous wood and a touch of tropical fruits. Tight cracker-like malt, some bread. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily bitter with a light to medium acidic profile. Mostly grapefruit and cracker-light malt. The mouthfeel is tight but soft with a medium carbonation. Lingering grapefruit taste. Medium bodied.

750ml 3 days old growler from the brewery shared with Ben and Mathieu. Aroma: loads of grapefruits, floral and a tiny bit piney. App: hazy straw almost golden, small white head and little lacing. Medium body, fluffy, fruity, clean dry bitter finish. Overall: great! Wish I drank it earlier though. But great dry clean bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT.
At least this was poured into closest respected/correct glassware, a snifter.
The appearance was a moderately hazy burnt orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim looking film of a white head. Barely any lacing.
The smell had a sweet pulpy grapefruit bursting over some bitter pine and subtle lemon rind.
The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors and adds a nice drying effect on into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation seemed good with enough harsh bitterness on my tongue to definitely show some great DIPA effects.
Overall, this was a very nice DIPA that I would have again.
