4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: lots of citrus - grapefruit, orange, and tangerine, as well as some melon and resin. Very floral and aromatic, hops just jump out of the glass. Pours a hazy golden color, white head with good retention and nice lacing. Flavor follows the aroma - lots of citrus and tropical fruit, some melon and tangerine, a touch of pine, nice light malt character with a bit of background sweetness, crisp bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, smooth texture. Another amazing HF hop bomb.
On tap at Armsby Abbey in Woo-stah. IPA pour with an off-white head. Super smooth. Hoppy. Citrusy. Oranges. Other tropical fruit. Wow! The smoothness for a DIPA is the best attribute. So clean. 17.2 skiatd1 (52) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2017
Fruity, slightly soapy to start with slight bitter hoppy delicious middle and finish. Quite cloudy in appearance and very light melon in color

Draft ta Armsby Abbey. Pours pineapple yellow with a thick white head. Leaves a shitload off lacing in the glass. Lots of dankness on the nose. Big grapefruit and pine on the tongue. Finished with a nice amount of bitterness. Solid. shawnmurphy (610) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2017
On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington, Vermont. Pours milky yellow with spritz of white head and lacing. Aroma: pine, pineapple and mango -- all strong-smelling. Flavor: all of the above -- on steroids! Mouthfeel: full-bodied, oily from the hop resins. skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ hazy, glowing orange with a slight white head and lots of lacing. also a good amount of sediment, not as bad as heady though haha.
S~ sooo much citrus, and pineapple. a little bit of earthy pine and a little hay funk.
T~ like the nose, lots of citrus hop bitterness. lots of grapefruit and pine. the hay funk comes in on the end along with a lot of bitterness.
M~ very smooth and dry on the finish.
O~ definitely a great IPA, i love how their saison style comes through a little bit on this one. i could drink this every day when i’m in a hoppy mode, recommended for sure!

Shared 750ml growler from the brewery. Hazy orange-gold, white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, peach, juicy hops. Taste is tropical fruit, pineapple, peach, floral notes, mango, honey. Excellent. jrodooo5 (1720) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Unbelievable aroma, smooth mouthfeel, light on bitterness, & pretty pale gold pour. Stunning overall! meccahh69lol (359) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Poured from a growler purchased at the brewery. This was my favorite of all the ones I sampled there so you know its really f’in good. The aroma is sour oranges with some pine and the appearance is a cloudy thick unfiltered orange/apple juice looking thing, extremely dank. The taste is a whizz bang punch of perfectly balanced resin, hops, pine, and fruit that disguises the 9%abv and keeps you coming back for more. Seriously, this might be the most perfectly balanced imperial IPA I’ve ever had; all of its humors are in even keel. One of the best beers I’ve ever had and one I would definitely get again when I make my next VT beer journey. Good for following up a deli sandwich with images of terrifying anti social rasta bananas in trees. Chalumeaux (1709) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Poured from growler thanks ClarkVV for the mule hazy orange with a nice white head. Aromas of exotic fruit mango pineapple floral grassy notes. Taste is soft and luscious notes of honey floral grass juicy citrus and a dry finish with balanced bitterness. Wow.
