Dark mahogany brown, almost black, with a moderate beige head that has good stick.
Aroma of cascade citrus, marmalade, pine, and hints of sweet char and dark roast.
Flavors between IPA and a Brown Porter on steroids. Nice caramel, roast barley, and dark fruit meet with citrus, pine, and herbal earthy hops. IBUs are listed as 65 and could honestly use a bit more to balance the high ABV and malt flarors.
Medium bodied and quite drinkable. The hefty 10% ABV isn't noticed until the end of the first pint.
Just happened to be in VT on vacation and surprised to see this was not in the database...must be brand new and very fresh.

I gotta say, I like this beer WAY more than I thought I might. The big 10% ABV is masked beautifully and the hops come through very well without leaving too much bitterness. Overall this is such a smooth BDIPA. Only problem with this beer is that the brewing period is too short.

3.73/5 rDev -8.6%

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" dark tan head over the barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head collapses slowly, settling at a strong 1/2" and holding, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is miminal.
Taste has a peek of sweet to start, an undercurrent of slightly acrid bitterness from stem to stern, a shot of dark fruit in the middle, and a cream yet more bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. Never would have guessed this brew is 10%abv.
