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".

BroSpud (2261) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12oz bottle from Julios. Cloudy orange pour with very little head. Pretty average IPA true to the style. Much better than the other Shed beer I tasted recently.

shawnmurphy (636) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours slightly hazy copper-orange with spritz of white head and lacing. Aroma: honey, caramel, tropical fruits. Flavor: malt-forward (honey, toffee, caramel) with melon, mango, pine. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, oily finish. Drinks heavier than its ABV. This is a sweeter West Coast style of IPA rather than the hoppier East Coast, or Vermont, style.

Ron (4215) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a thin white foam head. Aroma of caramel malt with some muted grapefruit. Sweet resiny taste with hop spice and caramel. The hop spice and grapefruit taste is off a pinch. It an average IPA.

probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2016
12 oz bottle in a mixed pack at Smugglers Notch. Hazy deep golden with lots of fine floaters and a tight off-white head. Big pine, train and oily citrus, peppery/spicy, a tiny bit of caramel/toffee, old school, medium body, medium-low carbonation, dry with moderate bitterness (surprisingly) and a pine, resin, grapefruit and toffee finish. Old school IPA.

mzaar (3691) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2016
Flaska från Whole Food, Bowery (NYC). Oklar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Något trött i både doft och smak, nästan lite orent. Dofter av malt, grapefrukt och halm. Smakinslag av grapefrukt, övermogen frukt och gräs. Medelbeska.

Franckg (1877) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
6-pack caché entre 2 lots de Bud dans un Sunoco du Vermont. À mi-chemin entre une ipa et une dia. Bien houblonné, amertume moyenne, goût sucré. Pas pire.

2.9
terefere (395) - Durham, USA - JAN 6, 2016

3.6
Ungstrup (38591) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Bottled. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, straw, and pine needles, leading to a bitter finish.

3.3
Quick3Beers (1460) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Good pine aroma and flavor, somewhat bitter with a bit of caramel background. Good beer.

jimhilt (2630) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit hop nose, flavor is grapefruit hops and some caramel malt starts to balance. Not nearly as hoppy as their Profanity ale. Gift.
