A ruby colored ale that has a pronounced hop character. This smooth beer features a soft malt body that is complimented by American hops and dry hopped with whole flower hops just prior to kegging for a fresh hop finish.

On tap at brewery. Brown/orange pour with foamy lasting head. Medium hops aroma with toast. Medium body carries some hops in front of caramel. Very nice session beer with complexity and character.

Une mousse mince mais qui refuse de partir se pose sur une robe trouble de couleur ambrée. La dentelle est collante et permanente, créant ainsi un visuel très invitant. Au nez, c’est autant fruité (agrumes) que sucré (caramel brûlé), l’houblonnage semblant assez généreux, à ma grande surprise. Je ne sais pas quelle levure fut utilisée pour fermenter cette bière, mais elle est très phénolique. Combinez ça au malt caramel et aux houblons américains très fruités et vifs et vous obtenez une espèce de fusion entre une Saison, une IPA américaine et une IPA anglaise. Bien pétillante, bonne amertume en finale bref, c’est un très beau produit de nos amis du Vermont.

draft at brewery, decent, a little too sweet and faint hop aromas. Bland but a easy drinker, just a light boring ale.

Lukaduke (2468) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a rusty amber color with a touch of eggshell foam. Lots of round malt, sweet honey, hints of citrus and dates. Touch light on the carbonation resulting in a slightly sticky body but the malt profile is quite focused and interesting.

Reynolds314 (2661) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pretty decent amber ale. Pours copper amber with little head. Aroma is earthy light citrus, honey, caramel, and orange. Taste is mildly sweet with a dry finish. Very balanced yet unremarkable beer.

bellco33 (426) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap in a sampler: pours amver amber with a thin white head. Aroma is herbal chamomile with tropical hops. Taste is really bright with lots of honey malt, and citrus finish. Medium body, awesome beer.

Pours Amber with a thin white head. Aromas mostly of sweet fruit with hints of grass. Flavors of fruit and a bit of hop bitterness and a slight hint of caramel.

Stine (1642) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Rich, semi-translucent copper pour. The aroma suggests depth and sprightly character. Red apple and berries, underlaid with chestnuts, toffee, woodsy hops and molasses-soaked wheat bread.

The taste offers a taut balance of super clean malts and just-right earthy hop bitterness. This sturdy but quenching flavor feels like an homage to some long-established European archetype, though one that finds new corners of possibility.

This is rich in malt texture; clean and fulsome through the mid palate and semi dry with nut skins and herbal flourishes at the finish. Its depth of character and intangible, whimsical aura reveal the love that went into it. To some this may seem simplistic, but its simplicity is no small part of what makes this incredible beer so stunning.
