4.71/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass, A nice light, crystal clear light copper color with a 2 finger off white head. The smell is very west coast IPA with resiny and citrus hop aroma.

The taste is very well balanced. There is a definite citrus hop up front followed by smooth malt sweetness with some hints of fruit. The finish is very clean with hints of grapefruit and slight hints f grass. There is a lingering but pleasant hop bitterness. Even though it's unmistakably an IPA it's not what I would call a hop bomb. I will definitely be buying more of this.

4.06/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Drank right out of the bottle while camping, so I'm giving it a 4 for appearance to be nice.
Smelled really nice, dank hoppiness and sweetness from malts.
Tastes really nice as well. Just a touch more hops than malt in this very balanced IPA.
Mouthfeel felt a bit thin for me.
Overall, a very tasty, very drinkable IPA, wish I could get it regularly in Vermont.
