brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
On tap @ Vermont Pub & Brewery. Clear golden beer with a ring of white foam. This is gross. Tastes like chlorine, soap, and plastic. Bitter plastic and soap. Some orange, candy, and caramel. An old school malt profile and hop profile. This is not enjoyable in the slightest. Astringent herb and malt character on the finish. Scroll past.

commonmac (1048) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
On tap at the source with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche. 12 oz pour. Light golden orange. Minor quarter white head. Little bit of haze. Pretty decent lacing. Aroma is muted with hints of citrus and floral. Taste is also mild with pretty standard hops bringing pine, citrus, and grassy notes. Thin mouthfeel that makes me think it’s more of a glorified homebrew effort. Very forgettable overall.

Bulk_Carrier (3742) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at brewpub itself. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing on the glass. The smell started off with some sweet grassy hops rolling over on some semi-sweet citrus hops, definitely playing a subtle low-key effect over some sweet malt. The taste was mainly grassy sweet through the hops.Light underscore of malts to play with the sweetness yet still have enough oomph from the bitterness to show some effect in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.

biirusaikou (2566) - - JAN 4, 2016
Draught at the brewpub. Very classic, citrsy hops with a piney edge and biscuit malt, bitter finish. Ok stuff but tough to get impressed in such an amazing local scene.

Drake (11791) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #137. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a clear vibrant yellow with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal, resin hops, dilly, thyme, pale malt, hints of raisin. The taste is tropical, citrus, pine hops, spice, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice.

BeerGolem (796) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Sample on tap at brewpub. Pours clear orange with minimal head and some lacing. Not much aroma: distant floral and hoppy notes. Not much on taste neither. Strong bitterness. Maybe this would be better on pint, but seems to me there are plenty of better IPA out there.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Light golden beer. Overall, a middle of the road brew without much to say about it. It’s a "house beer" with just the slightest of hop components. (#5809, 10/9/2014)
