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.

Fiddlehead IPA is a very tasty drinkable beer. I have been a fan of Longtrail, Magic Hat, and Harpoon and recently Switchback. This beer is better than all of them. Good people at the brewery, going to be a very successful brewery for years to come.

On tap at Pizza Stone a while back. Just found my note, nice and clearly written. Must have been my first beer. Golden with chill haze flat head and lace. Grapefruity hop aroma. Very mild peach apricot sweetness with medium assertive grapefruit rind and spicy bitterness accentuated by effervescent carbo and dry finish. Medium light body. Excellent.

On tap at the Cliff House on top of Stowe Mtn. Awesome time to have this beer. The sun was streamin in through the window of the lodge making the beer glow a hazy golden yellow/orange. White head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Slight dankness. Taste was sweet with a nearly non existent bitterness. Smooth, soft, and refreshing.

En fut. Robe orangée trouble, mince col de mousse. Dentelle légèrement collante. Arômes de mangue, pêche, orange. Un peu de pelures de banane, litchi et malt sucré. Tres tropicale mais les arômes manquent d’intensité. En bouche, fuits tropicaux sucrés, malt Les arômes s’y retrouvent et les saveurs ressortent mieux. Un peu resineuse et l’équilibre avec le fruité est superbe. Bel texture glissante et rondeur.

Golden IPA. Crisp, smooth, and light bodied. Hoppy with a bit of citrus. A solid IPA.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy milky glowing orange with a few sparse white bubbles of foam. Aroma is super fruity, tons of orange juice, nice dank hop, light oniony notes, very similar to the Second Fiddle but a bit fruitier, nice resinous touch as well. Taste is very hoppy, fresh squeezed ornage juice, juicy hop, nice grassiness, very light malt. Palate is light, dry, low carbonation. Very tasty.
