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.
