4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Holy intense aroma! The nose on this is redonk! Immense blast of grapefruit, citrus, mango and pine. This is a fruity, yet dank IPA! The malt balance is also exceptional and even apparent on the nose. I’m thinking there may be some malted rye in this, as I get almost a spicy/rustic malt presence from the aroma. Appearance is a murky copper color with a nice white creamy head. Taste is spot on - grapefruit, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and dank marijuana-like herbals. This also has a great mouthfeel - perfect carbonation for the style yet full bodied. This is extremely well balanced and it shows. This might be one of my favorite IPAs to date.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery, multiple times at various Burlington and Waterbury establishments because it was so yummy. Opaque amber with a creamy head. Amazingly fresh tropical fruit hop aroma with some peach and grass, moderate carbonation and full bodied, easy to drink with a long complex, slightly dry finish, love the moderate alcohol percentage yet huge complexity, would gladly sip on this all summer (heck all year) long.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Growler Garage.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy bronzed orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some messy lacing.
The smell started off with some sweet peach, light apricots, light pine blend bittersweet and sound off together really nicely.
The taste was bittersweet all of the way through in the previously mentioned flavors running into a nice semi-sweet to bitter citrus aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice bittersweet feel on my tongue. Sessionable enough to want to have with food.
Overall, I’d have this again. Its pretty good.

Hazy gold pour. Aroma mild hops. Tastes mild hops. This was very light tasting for a supposedly hoppy brew. There are better hill beers.

I'm not an IPA person, but I can respect it when it's done well. And this is most definitely done well.

Sample pour at the source. Pours a cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, some grass. Flavor nicely of peach, mango, and some grass notes. Medium body, thick texture and solid carbonation. Mildly bitter to finish. Amazing.
