On tap at Mad Taco. Pours lovely golden with good foamy head that lasts. Big citra/cat piss aroma. Full flavor followup. Overall, a lovely, somewhat baudy IPA.

On tap, Pro Pig. Smells amazing, lemon and grapefruit. Starts light, smooth malt, ends grapefruit hop. Like a more refined version of Maine Beer Peeper. Excellent!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Farmhouse Tap - Burlington, VT. Solid C-hop-like aroma, with good pine and lighter fruity hop notes. Clean, but sweet, too sweet, for me really. I thought the malt structure was a little heavy and made the overall palate sheen a bit thickly. The hop flavors were nice, but not as intense as some contemporary examples of the style. Decent, but not exceptional.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, biscuit, toast, lemon peel and light grain. Very nice. Taste is dry to light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of tangerine, mango, toffee and grapefruit. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Great DIPA, just how I want them.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
End of bottle. Danish sample measure Sloshing yeast-laden ochre liquid, muddy, disparate bubbles. Grapefruit, resins jumping out of the glass; human sweat. Grapefruit(peel) concluding the aromas, save for some cattiness. Sweet/bitter pink grapefruit, really resembling the fruitjuice. Creaminess by all the suspended yeast. Sharp, resinous/piney bitterness, bit quinine-like. Yeast-filled body, slick, but still refreshing. Probably more refined in better condition. Txs to L, M & ?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Pro Pig. Glad I was able to find this one! Pours a bright golden orange. Nose huge, big citrus and tropical fruit, clean, low malt. Hop dominated. On tasting, closer to an IPA based on the low alcohol and more moderate bittering. Dry and fruity. Great late hopping character. Fantastic IIPA.

Had on tap at Three Penny for $8. Pours an astonishing hazy meringue-yellow with a sudsy, snowy white head half a finger in length. Aromas of candied lemon, saffron, limeade, mint, orange blossom honey, ginger marmalade, and hops. Tastes the same. Explodes with hop juice, citrus, sawdust, and lemons. Quite good. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
