COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after one of the famous ’front four’ trails on Mt. Mansfield, this I.P.A. is brewed in the English tradition of pale ales shipped from Britain, around Africa, to India. Those ales contained extra hops and a higher alcohol percentage, which both served as natural preservatives. This ale holds true to those original, defining characteristics. Formerly "National IPA".

Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy orange copper pour with a small white head. Herb, citrus, metal, bread, pine. Strong carbonation with medium body and bitter finish. Not bad at all to have on a cold day

16 oz. draft. Deep golden copper pour, great lacing, white head. Smell is citrus, lemon and piney hops. Taste is a decent malt combined with a balanced hop profile, not too bitter. Very decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle. Can't recall from whom. A slightly dusty malt nose with a woody hop. Minty flavor. A bread/toasty malt. This is easy drinking but not an IPA. slightly more pepper as it warms. Not bad. Not great v ---Rated via intercellular device

kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a large foamy beige head that had very good retention and left some sticky lacing. The nose is just lightly hoppy with some citrusy notes, and the malt character is coming through as being heavy on the crystal malt. A little caramel, but mostly crystal, and I don’t care for that in an IPA. The flavor is even heavier on the crystal malt than I thought it would be. Just a very light citrusy hop note makes it past all the sugary crystal malt. Which leads into the body being overly heavy and sticky with a residual sweetness that lingers on well past any hop bitterness. Overall not what I want in an IPA. Disappointing.

mtdewa1 (441) - rome, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Cloudy poor medium head. Decent lacing. Fruity aroma with some hops coming through. Taste of orange, grapefruit and grass. Hops come out on top. Decent but not the best.

mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Pours a nice amber color two finger head with heavy lacing. Hoppy grapefrit nose to it. Strong hops favor to this beer which tends to overwhelm the other flavors that are hidden suh as the nice citrus complexity. Worth a try if you’re a hophead. Which I am.

VincentDamon (528) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Belle couleur orangée. On perçoit des dépôts dans le liquide également. Nez très puissant de houblons, de lime et de citron. En bouche, la puissance des houblons est toujours là. Wow! Long en bouche, plein d’amertume. Ce que je souhaite d’une bonne IPA robuste. Un coup de coeur! Cheers!

3.3
keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottled June 13, 2013.
Appearance: Hazy amber body with a huge light tan head. The head is dense and dissipates unevenly and very slowly, creating caverns through it. Too much head though, it’s 75% of the pour.
Aroma: Sweet citrus is noticed instantly, oranges and grapefruit with mango and pineapple. with a very slight floral and pine presence.
Taste: The flavor isn’t as fruity as the aroma, in-fact caramel and toasted malts are the prominent flavor here with very low bitterness with hints of floral and grapefruit notes towards the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
Overall: The aroma hinted at a pretty good IPA, but unfortunately the flavor didn’t translate properly. This is decent at best, even for the price.
