definitely worth the hype, if you can get it. Only sold near the brewery in VT. The aromas flowing out of this beer are tremendous. You won't be disappointed. I have only tried a few of them, but will definitely be searching for more. Good alcohol level. Go find it and try it!

A big thank you to markgugs for this one! Looks like this was canned 4-29-14
Pours a hazed apricot with 2 fingers of rocky pearl colored head. Not gonna detract for haziness, apparently they aren't going for this dropping bright. Sheets of lacing, very good head retention
S: Leafy hops, breadyness, pears; maybe the only short coming in this beer, not getting any citrus pop
T: Pineapple, white grape, bread fruit, breadyness, slight honey malt notes, a touch of peach & apricot, with leafy hops layered underneath. Tea-like notes mix with grapefruit, breadyness, & woody hop notes; just gets better as this warms. Finishes with some honey, caramel & toffee, sneaking past the woody, leafy & citrusy hops, a touch dry too; much pineapple & a little mango too
MF: Medium bodied, soft carbonation & superb balance, some tingly acidy pineapple notes as well
Drinks too damn easy, now I wish to drink from the tanks, because although is very good/super complex, I sure this is mind blowing a few days old...
