Got this from Dr. Hennig, thanks so much. Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a one inch stick white head that leaves beautiful lace. Smell is a tropical citrus mango, pineapple, tangerine, papaya, and grapefruit. Taste is just amazing, very well balanced, with grapefruit dominating the finish in a wonderful way. Body is medium, plenty of life, with a dry finish, and so easy drinking. This is possibly the best IPA that has ever touched these lips, Vermont knows Citra hops like nobody. Wow it is so special. My first IPA or DIPA perfect score.

Won in a "beer bracket" contest for March Madness. Batch 202, bottle #20.
A: Poured into my Pretty Things goblet. Pours a hazy gold with very little head on it, fading fast and not sticking around. Very light white/yellow lace. Dig the bottle presentation too, very Vermont. Simple and classic.
S: Lots of fruit in the nose...crispy citrus rinds with a subtle hoppiness but not as much as I expected. Not necessarily a bad thing, just surprising.
T: Wow. The citrus is there but not as blossoming as the nose. Flavor dances with the hops that are more present with each sip but not overbearing at all. A surprisingly smooth finish rounds it out just as the hops put the punctuation on the experience.
M: A slight dry pucker that has me constantly reaching for my glass. It quenches and lingers in a perfect balance leaving the tongue tingling and the throat wanting more.
O: I've tried plenty of IPAs. It's an easy beer to order and even easier to forget sometimes. This is the best American IPA I've ever had. It's complexity is delivered so smoothly, it becomes brilliantly simple.
