Thank you Slatetank for sharing the spoils of your recent VT trip with me. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a clouded pale yellow color with a firm white topping that persists. The brew plays the part well visually as expected.

The aroma contains notes of citrus with grass clippings, pine and herbal components. Some solvent alcohol and sulfur emerges with a swirl. This has a very fresh yet generic sort of hop bite that smells like pellet hops crushed up in my hands.

The taste is bitey with grassy bitterness blending to pulp/zest/pith of orange. Some solvent alcohol pokes through the back end breaking things up. The taste of this is very familiar, though ive never had this offering before.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A good brew thats fresh and enjoyable with a creeping amount of alcohol inclusion. I know, I know - cast your stones at me for not being a believer in the golden nectar that flows from the farmstead on the hill. From what ive had, their hoppy offerings just taste nearly indifferent from one another (in my opinion.)
