Vermont

4.4/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Light amber color, brilliant filtered clarity, medium semi-sticky white head.

S: Grapefruit rinds, spruce, tangerine, a touch of mango and sweet crystal malt.

T: Like the smell, but more substantial. Firm crystal malt presence is overpowered by citrus and pine notes from the hops. Finishes clean with a bit of alcohol and tropical fruit.

M: Wonderful. Medium carbonation, bitter but no astringency, slight alcohol warming. More body than most comparable IPA's but it works. Hops and malt finish in perfect harmony with just enough bitterness.

O: Great IPA. No individual characteristics blow you out of the water but the whole package comes together perfectly. This would always be in my fridge if it was available in VT.

Delicious. This was a true surprise to me, I was expecting a run of the mill ipa, something you could forget quickly, not at all. This beer is surprisingly delicious, and is a great ipa, I recommend this beer all day. It's more savory than bitter so its not a hopnut kinda beer but as a bitter hop lover myself, this was a different, refreshing surprise. Well worth the try.
