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.

Hands down one of the best beers I've ever had, stands up right next to Heady in it's own right (IMVHO).

Only down side is the limited availability of this beer, even to a Vermonter who lives with-in 20 miles of the brewery.

I would strive to obtain this over Heady as it is a must-try, for me at least.

From a bomber in trade

Pale yellow to light apricot color-- medium head

Aroma is citrus- light apricot, pineapple, and orange, with piney dank hops.

Flavors are similar and very well integrated. What really gets you right away is the creamy-factor!
Lush full mouth feel with good carbonation, almost no discernible malt (just the way I like it), and a mildly bitter finish.

Overall, well, the 5 speaks for itself. Right up their with Heady and HF-several, but Abner comes to mind.
