Bottled 1/10/14.

Pours a hazy honey yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid fruit forward hop aromas and flavors that get better as the beer warms up.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a thin collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderately strong aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with some hints of pine resin.
T: Flavors of citrusy hops—grapefruit and orange zest stand out in particular—dominate the taste and also contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. The citrusy flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: This IPA was quite enjoyable and packed in a lot of flavors of grapefruit hops.

This poured out as a hazy yellow color with a soapy white head on top. The retention on this is really quite good as well as the lacing, it's a really nice looking beer. The smell of the is zesty with some hoppy citrus aromas on the nose. The taste is refreshing and floral, citrusy and crisp. The mouthfeel is light bodied and refreshing. Overall I think this a is a really damn good IPA. I may be picking up more of this.

Bottled on 4/16/13.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lemon yellow color with just a great looking firm one finger head just doesn't dissapate,not a fan of the color but a big fan of the pillow-like head.Big citrusy hops jump out in the nose along with some pine underneath,not much malt presence except for mild toastiness.If you like grapefruit and bitterness this your kinda ipa,I love it,intesnse grapefruit juice flavors and some stickiness to go along with some lighter pine resin,again just a faint drier malt presence.I haven't had an in your face sharp hop bomb in awhile and for me this fits the bill.Excellent...in my opinion.

12oz bottle. The label marketing spiel seems to indicate that this is brewed in Stratford, Connecticut. WTF? Still July 4th, I admit that, but this is still a potentially slavish ode to the land in question, so, um, there?

This beer pours a slightly hazy, very pale golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, silken foamy, bone-white head, which leaves some nicely thorough, if not exactly consistent webbed lace around the glass as things quite slowly sink away.

It smells of musty grapefruit and orange hops, some further pine resin astringency, mild lemon cleanser notes, and pale grainy, somewhat crackery malt. The taste is astringent orange and grapefruit rind, a bit of further lemon tartness, understated pale grainy malt, some slightly aggressive pine essence, and further leafy, floral, and faintly perfumed hops.

The carbonation is pretty sublimated, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and mostly smooth, with just a twinge from any of those overly effusive hops. It finishes well off-dry, the caramel-tinged malt and fruit-heavy hops reigning heavy over the bitter, edgy components of the same.

A decent enough emulation of the real deal, McCoy, whatever - the hops are adequate, to be sure, but not really up there in yo face (sorry) to qualify for inclusion into the rarefied aura of American IPA lore. Good, sure, but with a obvious lacking in crispness and overt bitterness. Dem's the breaks, I guess.

Pours a semi-hazed effervescent bronze with 2 fingers of pearl white head. Sheets of lacing & great head retention

S: Grassyness & grapefruit, floral hops, pineapple & bready notes, plus tobacco notes & a little pine

T: Follows the nose, a touch of pear as well up front. Intense grapefruit, orange peel, pears, & leafy hops as this warms. Finishes with earthy hops, pineyness & orange peel bitter, a whisper of caramel & leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, good balance

Drinks easy, good effort from these guys. Slightly over-priced, but well worth a go. This vastly exceeded my expectations

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is light golden with thick haze and white cap which has tons of lace with very good retention. The smell is very tropical lots of mango and pineapple with a slight peachy floral odor. The feel is very herbal dank and slightly fruity citrus with mild malt and medium carbonation with semi dry finish with resinous accent.

The taste has a mix of tropical fruit and grassy hop flavor with a mild juicy and slight malt body in the middle with light spice tinge and somewhat dank hop element which blends well with the yeast in the taste. Overall this is a pretty great IPA, lots of hop flavor in the raw, not overly bitter and the hop flavor is dominant as it should be for the style. I would drink this again, thanks Tim for sharing!

on tap the famed three penny taproom in Montpelier Vermont. the pour on this is a light honey hazy orange color, with a whole lot of lasting white head as thick as whipped cream. I smell an ipa, but there is something distinctly floral to it, fresh and bright, and I find myself drawn to it like a bee, instinctively. its bright and summery, but without sacrificing the necessary bitterness for the style. the grain bill is simple and straightforward, medium bodied, a little bland, but leaving plenty of room for the interesting hops to rock and roll. fine carbonation has soda like force, but it sits well in my stomach, and hardly feels like 7% abv as I session this. perfect pairing with a rare cheeseburger and pungent arugula salad. evil twin beers are getting easier to find, which is great news, because I am yet to find one I don't love. falco is a treat, distinct in a crowded genre.
