On tap at Hen in the Woods restaurant in Burlington.

A: It pours like every other DIPA, dark yellow/light orange color, hazy, pure white head, good lacing and good retention.

S: This is juicy stuff. Tons of fresh (slighlty unriped) pineapples, peaches, mango, clementines. A very sour but very tropical juice. Then, you get some of grass like hops that is typical to Vermont it seems. Sugars seem low.

T: This is extremely tasty, tons of sour pineapples, peaches, mango and clementines just attack the tongue right at the beginning. Super fruity and juicy. Then you get a real solid hop smash of dry-ness that never gets chalky, but is always on the side of citrus peels and grass. A light sweetness lingers on after the storm to remind you of the fruit notes. Amazing.

M: Super light and never sticky, just like I love my DIPA's.

D: This is superbly drinkable. Like any top tier DIPA, you don't feel the alcohol at all and it has a similar level of drinkability as a tropical fruit juice.

THIS IS IT! This is the best DIPA I've ever had. It's the perfect blend of fruits, sourness, dryness, and just enough sweetness. This is a top tier beer and, to my tastebuds, this is better than Heady Topper. Damn near perfect if you ask me.

Gorgeous orange body with a soapy white head. Lingering aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, cantaloupe, really fruity with some dank aromas too. Flavor is terrific. Hops come through in a big way with all of the fruity hop flavors playing off of each other, but the kicker is a great toasty malt flavor. It sneaks in just enough to balance this one out nicely, but it is definitely a tremendously hoppy and bitter DIPA. Drinks great too, with a nice light body, but huge flavor. Damn this is good.
