American IPA |  6.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Orange with a haze. Thin white head and some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Citrus and pine.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine with hints of citrus.

Overall. This was an ok IPA. I would have it again.

First Growler sold, poured into a tulip - thanks to diffidentbastard for picking this up to open on NYE 2011!

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a small off-white head with minimal lacing. Nose is hoppy, piney and a bit earthy.

Taste is eerily reminiscent of Heady Topper, a bit less dank but chewy and bitter while still being very drinkable. The Mouthfeel is full and clean with a small bitter bite on the finish.

Overall a really solid start for another new VT brewery!

Great beer! It's just as hard to find this beer then it is the Heady Topper.. It has a golden smokey look to it.. Great smell to it.. Very fresh and it has great flavors.. If you are in Vermont make sure you grab this beer....the three times I've had this beer it never disappointed

Seved cold in a tulip glass at Crop in Stowe, VT.

Pale golden yellow color with a slight haze and thin white head.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy In a east-coast meets west-coast style.

Flavor is nicely balanced towards the bitter with herbal, minty, and citrus character. Malt body is light and crisp to let the hops shine.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and perfectly carbonated on tap.

Overall a really nice surprise from from must be an up-and-coming small brewery. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the northeast kingdom.
