A-Fresh from the brewery's tap. Amazing little place they got up there. Pours a delicious orange amber color. Hazy liquid. Head is awesome. Big, fluffy, retains and laces perfectly.
S-Huge hop bomb. Just tropical fruits and a steady malt base. So fresh smelling. A bunch of citrus. I am taken back by the fresh and juicy hops in the nose.
T-Oh my. This one is just a deliciously hopped piece of excellence. Oranges, grapefruit and anything else you would want here. My type of DIPA. Great hop profile. So big with a nice bitterness. Exceptionally hop-forward. And its as fresh as it can get.
M-Big, sticky, oily and resinous. Awesome feel for a DIPA. Great carbonation. Dry and lasting.
O/D-Nailed it. My goodness can Vermont put together a good beer. I absolutely loved this. I will give the victory to Heady Topper in a head-to-head, but its pretty much splitting hairs at that point. World class, top notch. Unbelievable.
Serving type: growler

4.5/5 rDev -3%

Had this on-tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Shaun Hill's arrogance, I have to admit this brew is pretty legit.
A: Poured a very cloudy, golden color, with a slight, 1/2 finger head.
S: Floral in spades, with that certain "Dreadnaught-esque" candy-coated alcohol that is absolutely to die for.
T: Very Dreadnaught-esque in its IPA disposition: Fresh Orange juice, grapefruit, and some caramel and butterscotch thrown into the mix.
M: Hell, what do I know here. I guess I'll add that it's lowly carbonated, non-sugary, and damn-near perfect here.
O: This lives up to its hype, for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
