Boutip (6397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear bright yellow color ale with a nice large pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some good amount of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit juice is just about perfect. Taste is also dominated by fresh grapefruit juice with nice floral undertones, light residual sugar notes and pretty much zero bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Another incredible Vermont IPA! BroSpud (2197) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Sampled during Julio’s 2015 Spring Tasting. Yep, this one didn’t leave that much of an impression but, to be fair, I had had a few by this table. I drank it. I liked it. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2015
22oz bottle thanks to nick, pours a light orange with a white head. citrus orange and grapefruit taste Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - APR 13, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance had a nice hazy bronzed brown to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a messy sort of foamy white lacing roaming all about.
The smell had an earthy yet bittersweet citrus to piney aspect with a light underscore of caramel malts.
The taste was earthy sweet and the bitterness came across fairly subdued. A light caramel to bitter citrus roamed in the aftertaste and bled into a dry earthy sort of finish.
On the palate, this one sat more at a medium on the body with a balance between the sessionable and sipping aspects. The carbonation seemed fine and the bitterness seemed fairly tame.
Overall, wishing there was a bottling date somewhere, still I’d have again. Ed5388 (3486) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2015

Poured from bomber. Big fizzy pop when bottle opened. Cloudy copper color with a very thick foamy white head. The type of head you get from a Belgium ale. Fruity citrus aroma with spicy pine. Dry biscuity malt start with a fruity citrus flavor and a spicy pine finish. I love that all the hops used are from Vermont.
Pours a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma of malt and citrus hops. Flavor is mostly resin with some light malt and citrus at the finish. Lots and lots of bitterness. Quite impressive flavor for just an IPA. Handypaul (564) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with quite a bit of fine suspended sediment, a generous white somewhat lasting frothy to creamy head that leaves great lacing. Rich aroma of floral hops, juicy citrus and resin. Lightly bitter taste up front with a secondary medium to heavy bitterness lingering in the back of my mouth. Flavor of grapefruit. average to soft carbonation, good malt backbone, medium body and a long bitter finish. AirForceHops (7296) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Draft at The Reservoir. Pours clear gold in a mason jar. The aroma is perfume and fresh floral hops. Mild malt undertone. jredmond (8325) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Medium body with average Co2. Floral hops dominate the palate like the nose. Some notes of grapefruit, tangerines with the addition of some pine in the finish. Bitterness is rather lengthy and drinks like it is a bit higher in gravity without any kind of alcohol flavor. Pretty nice and straddles the line of a DIPA.
Bottle shared with Paul. Pours a light golden body with big white head and nice lasting lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, tangerine, pith and fresh pine. Mouthfeel is medium to soft with notes of fresh citrus fruits, pine resin, light tropical notes, light grapefruit and fresh dank hop. Really nice.
