This beer is a beauty. Pours a golden orange with nice lacing. You can immediately smell the citra hops as soon as you begin pouring. Light but refreshing carbonation with a sweet, citrusy start that mellows to a bitter, well-rounded finish. Hits all the right notes but none of them too hard.

A truly elegant beer. Worth driving through the dirt roads of Vermont for, without a doubt.
