3.08/5 rDev -22%
A - Poured medium yellow with a small amount of white head.
S - A very light nose. Some citric and floral hop aromas and not much of a malt base.

First had: on tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier, VT
Served in a pint glass, a very hazy golden straw color with a small cap of white head; minimal retention and lacing. Grassy aroma, citrusy hops. Wet grass in the taste, lemon rind, pine and citrus hops, a bit of funk sort of reminiscent of a saison. Medium body. Just a bit off all over, and I didn't really care for it too much. (Rating: 3.03)
Revisited this again straight from the source a couple years after my initial review, and it has definitely improved. I got none of that odd funk from the first tasting, and the citrus and grassiness from the aroma was more pronounced in the taste, making this more in vein of a traditional IPA. Still not entirely sold on it, but the difference was a noticeable improvement.

3.4/5 rDev -13.9%
A - Light golden color with a white head leaving a good lacing on the glass.
S - Mild smell of citrus and piney note.
T - Good bitterness and happy flavors but the malt is far too discrete.
M - Good mouthfeel, relatively smooth but the body is on the light side and the alcohol tends to become a bit overpowering as the beer gets warm.
O - Just above the average, this IPA lacks some malty character IMO. Refreshing but a bit straightforward...

Poured repeatedly from a growler into a pint glass.
A: Amber yellow and clear with wispy lacing. Poured with one finger of off-white head on the first pour, and two fingers on the second.
S: Potpourri of sweet, sharp citrus and a lil' bit of berry.
T: Very citrusy. Semisweet, with tart grapefruit and orange notes. Slight bitter pine on the finish.
M: Very smooth. Mildly viscous and dry on the end.
O: Not bad, but IPAs are not my thing. My folks were vacationing in Vermont and brought back a growler for me since they know I'm into microbrews. Thanks folks!
