UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Clean doughy malt. Fruity citrusy hops, which were a bit oxidized. Good balance. Crisp minerality. trapped (3483) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 2, 2017
Draught @ Ned Levine, Boston. Slightly hazy pale yellow, small frothy whitish head, piney aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter piney taste with citrus flavor, smooth body, long medium bitter finish. Nice IPA jb (3342) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Somewhat of the vermont style in that the hops were more for flavor and nose than dry bitter blast. Only a bit of the earthiness came through at the end which I appreciated. halfonit (1392) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2017
On tap at Max’s. Pours a clear golden color with a super thick white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of hops, weed, slight citrus, pine, and some malts. Bubbly palate. Flavor is basically the same. Very fresh hoppy beer with the citrus end to balance it out. Leaves a citrusy hop finish.

Tap at Draught 55, I’m not really drinking this week but didn’t want to miss out on fiddlehead making appearance in city. Fine hazy orange pour and head dissipates quickly. Lovely nose of bright citrus, tropics, grass and funk. Tastes of nectarine, pineapple, plenty of lime, florals, white grape, some funky Brett. Light bodied. Slight sourness at first. Fruity finish. Interesting stuff 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2017

Draught at Buk’s Boston, 3/21/17 and again at Lulu’s, 4/23/17.tapefuzz (755) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2017
A moderately hazy, bright goldenrod-brass body shows healthy carbonation and is topped by a firm, good-sized, white head.
Fresh yeast mixes with light honey and biscuit from the malt as the hops add lime zest, dry pineapple and light grapefruit. It’s lightly juicy, but there’s a persistent heavy lime character that I associate with Simcoe (though having had a beer recently without simcoe where i still got it, I’m not sure what to think it is). It’s just, well, aggressive and twangy, though not like full-on pine resin. Otherwise it’s clean and seems well-done with no booziness.
In the mouth it’s lightly juicy with still a firm bitterness and strong carbonation. Good malt/wheat-like texture and a high attenuation. Lots of lime and grapefruit with light pineapple and mango lingering. Clean, fresh and very zesty. I’ve had some that were very mediocre and others that very much surprised me, so the jury’s still out on this one, for me. Need to try more. I will say that it’s a unique VT IPA and not a cookie cutter follow after Alchemist/HF beer, so props for that.
Draught. Pours a lightly cloudy orange-gold with a moderate foamy white head. Aroma is floral hops, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. Taste is mango, tropical fruit, some doughy malt, melon, and a very light piney-ness. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crispness to it. Easy drinking.
