one of the better beers ive had from these guys, which unfortunately still isnt saying a whole lot. its a really blonde imperial ipa, with a bright yellow color, really pale for the style, and with a thick white head over two inches high. it s smells still quite sweet from the grain, like it could get fermented down even dryer and stronger, and the hops dont really pop in the nose for me. the flavor, despite being done with the lighter color grain, is a little cerealy tasting, it overbalanced the hops, which come across leafy and vegetal but without the oily intensity i usually look for in a big ipa. bitterness is robust though. a rather drinkable can of big ipa, being a little lighter and not so huge in body or even abv for the style, but it just doesnt seem special to me, underwhelming but not bad overall.

Picked up a six pack at Beverage Baron in Barre, VT. Had I know it was as good as it turned out to be, I would have gotten a case! It looks like your typical "really good IPA"....hazy, orange, looks really good. Again, like all good IPAs I could smell it as soon as I opened the can and it smelled like lemons, grapefruit and maybe some orange and pine. The taste followed the smell with a dry, bitter finish which I really liked. In all, this was an excellent beer and a very pleasant surprise. When I get back to Vermont, I'll be looking forward to grabbing another case or two (Always fun to share with friends!).
