Tried twice, once poured from a bottle into a tulip, another time served on tap at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier.

A - Bright, glowing, golden hue, medium white head. Hazy, clearly unfiltered. I feel silly saying that this is one of the most beautiful looking beers I've ever seen in a glass...

S - Pineapple, citrus, sweet tropical fruits, light notes of pine. Very nice aroma.

T - Lots of citrus and tropical fruit with some light, lingering pine notes. The malts take a bit of a backseat here, rather hop forward. As the beer warmed up, I noticed that a certain booziness really started to subdue other flavors - more boozy than I would have expected towards the end.

M - Tight carbonation, somewhat light bodied, leaves a slightly slick mouthfeel.

O - This is an excellent beer, but I feel it's overhyped - especially considering the tight supply and availability of other great beers in the region.

Serving type: on-tap
