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".

Very light aroma. Golden pour from 12oz bottle. Light colored foam with slight lacing and alcohol legs. Over the top hop bitterness, extremely crisp with little to no malt flavor

Bottle. Dark amber color, cloudy, and a little thick. Mildly assertive hops but not overpowering.

Bottle via state line..nice looking pour..fairly large head.2 finger plus..lots of particles floating around..I wouldn’t exactly say the aroma is brimming with citrus hops like the label claims..but..nose is a mix of bready malt..taste is ok..not very complex..probably wont get again..makes me long for another cloudy ipa from the great state of Vermont..

Block (2894) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Light, fruity, hoppy aroma. The flavor is a bit too sweet for me. A bit syrupy. Overall not bad.

keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours amber with a thin head. Malthus aroma with some biscuit and caramel. Flavor follows with a balance of hops. Very thin, was hoping for better.

Refreshing! Medium bodied beer that’s easy on the palate, leaving a wonderful bitter hoppy note to finish. Great find for the summer! Thanks Mark for recommending this beer. Highly recommended!

Very minimal grapefruit aroma. Cloudy unfiltered with bits of hop residue floating throughout. A bit of a dry crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Middle of the road IPA for me.. Lots of bitterness - not too too much more. Not bad but alittle too bitter & not well rounded enough.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Better than I thought. A little on the sweet side but still had noticeable hop aroma and flavor. Not great but drinkable.

3.4
PhillyCraft (7597) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Draft at Barcade with Lucilia. Poured hazy copper with medium to light head and lacing. Notes of floral hops, oranges, light caramel malts, and spicy wood. This one is not as bad as its rating or the batch on tap was very fresh. Not sure.
