Very malty scent, with just a hint of hops. Tastes slightly bitter, with the same malt forward flavor, with little hops. Golden color with a bit of cloudiness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very decent IPA. Wasn’t quite sold on it but it has a decent malt base to back up moderately heavy hops. Not so resinous and sticky as alot of Oregon IPAs. Light sweet toasted caramel malts are a nice presence with solid but not lingering bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 7/10/15
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, pine/resin on pale malts and a bit of caramel/toffee
Appearance: It pours a darker orange color with a clean off-white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes of bitter hops, bit more citrus than the aroma, still lots of pine, fairly malty as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a long, fairly dry close
Solid IPA. Definitely on the bitter side. Not a top of style example, but certainly a flavorful enough offering.

This IPA in a can is a little more on the malty side. This costs $1.21 from Walmart.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds.
The smell started off with a burnt caramel malt and a slight toasty effect leading into some crisp citrus to piney hops.
The taste was mostly sweet with a slim bitterness running into the toasty malts. Caramel to lingering citrus (bitter) hoppy aftertaste leads into a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes decent as an IPA but does have a sly sweetness rolling over my mouth.
Overall, for an IPA coming from the west coast, I’d say, hmmm....if you’re going to send to Vermont, either send better stuff or fresher, no need to seek this out again.

Slightly cloudy golden colour with a small white head.
Fresh fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness, dryness and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is very well-balanced... piney and resiny hops, moderate bitterness, dryness and dryish maltiness. Balanced. Tasty.
