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.

Very interesting beer. The aroma is deep with peppery piney hops and on the palate the hops are very complex and bitter, however the malt backbone is weak. It’s not out of balance per we, but it needs something more. The hop profile alone earns points.

halfonit (1370) - 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.

Jow (3956) - New York, USA - JUL 26, 2017
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

Pours a nice golden amber from a tap, rich citrus aroma is followed through in the mouth. Nice well-rounded IPA.

ClarkVV (6757) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Draught at Buk’s Boston, 3/21/17 and again at Lulu’s, 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. 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.

tapefuzz (615) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2017
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.

3.7
kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2017
Draft pour at tip top in Boston. Tangy floral Citrus and apricot taste. Pretty damn good

bbbeer (838) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2016
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.

3.4
JStax (6898) - 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 it’s mellow. Medium body and medium carbonation.
