COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Draft at Sweetwaters Burlington. Pours a light coppery color with a small white head. Nose is fresh floral hops with a crisp biscuity backbone. Palate is light, crisp and refreshing. Flavors of floral hops, biscuits. Finishes clean with a light bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClarkVV (6542) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Draught at Buks Boston, 3/21/17 and again at Lulus, 4/23/17.
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. Its lightly juicy, but theres a persistent heavy lime character that I associate with Simcoe (though having had a beer recently without simcoe where i still got it, Im not sure what to think it is). Its just, well, aggressive and twangy, though not like full-on pine resin. Otherwise its clean and seems well-done with no booziness.
In the mouth its 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. Ive had some that were very mediocre and others that very much surprised me, so the jurys still out on this one, for me. Need to try more. I will say that its 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.

Orangy color with small whit head. Aroma pine and citrus hops. Medium body, bit of carbonation. Moderately bitter, well balanced, easy drinking mostly but a bit of sharp bite on the finish. Straightforward, solid.

JStax (6135) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is grassy and citrusy. A bit piny. Some bitterness, but its mellow. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Sampler at the brewery showing cloudy yellow with a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a moderately intense mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. The palate is gently carbonated and medium bodied. Light flavors of resinous pine ending on a moderately zesty bitterness and juicy grapefruit appearing once again on the linger.

canary dog (763) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
This was the first IPA I have had in quite a while. On tap at a local restaurant. The hops were rich and complex, without any one element standing out or being obtrusive. The mouthfeel was smooth and classy. There was no detection of alcohol, allowing the fresh hops to take center stage. Well made.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
On tap @ Fiddlehead. Lightly hazed golden beer with white foam. Pretty nice citrus hop character, peach, and some pine. A light bitterness. Lots of bread and a touch of melon. Mild malt sweetness and biscuit malts. Its not bad. Pretty basic and easy drinking. Relatively approachable.

ACHops (1563) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2016
On tap @ Doc Ponds. Pours lightly hazy golden amber with thick fluffy white head. Aroma sweet caramel malt, big fresh aromatic hops - grass and earthy dark citrus notes stand out. Taste is lightly syrupy caramel malt, juicy dank hops with notes of fresh pine, cedar, bitter grapefruit. Certainly not a typical NE style IPA, but tons of great fresh hop flavor.
