Sampled at 2010 Vermont Brewers Fest. Pours a hazy amber body with a small off white head. Scents of citrus hops, light caramel, and touch of herbal/ floral hops. All weak. A bit light in body for an IPA with moderate carbonation. Taste is predominately grapefruit hop. Bitter finish.

Good, strong IPA. Had some on draft at Ri Ra in Burlington. Lovely orange color, sweet hop aroma, nice bitter, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit and other citrus, dry, lip-smacking finish. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft) Hazy amber body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral/orange, some pine, spice, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, spice, floral/orange, earthy. Light-medium body. Not going to be mistaken for a West Coast IPA, but solid beer nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Fest 2009. Hazy amber pour. White head. The nose is loaded with UK/woody hops but without the sort of lighter spicy notes that I like. A fairly decent amount of dry-hopping. Light esters. It’s sort of a light UK-esque IPA. Improves a bit as it warms up.

Draft at brewpub. Mild citrus aroma. Orange body with an off-white head. Flavor is well-balanced, predominantly grapefruit. Lovely bitter finish. The best of the offerings I sampled at The Shed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours a light golden color with a small white head. Nose of resin, earthy hops, lights malts. Intial mouthfeel is very light bodied and watery which is instant disappointment. The hop character is present for the IPA but there is little balance the 1 dimensional brew doesn’t do too much to satisfy the palate for IPA expectations. Average head retention. Palate duration is average.

Not a great IPA. Gold colori wth no real head. I see another rater noticed what i did, no aroma to speak of! Where is the hop bite? Too much malt and grain flavor.

On tap always these days at the brewpub, but mediocre IPA. A bit of golden colour. No aroma. A pale in terms of hop and an odd bitterness. Some draping of lce, and thin head.
