Notes/Commercial Description:
Fiddlehead Brewery’s Vermont Pale Ale was made using 30 lbs of Cascade Hops grown in the Mad River Valley of our beautiful Green Mountain State! Our VPA is a light amber color, has a pleasant floral hop aroma with a slight citrus kick and finishes nice and smooth with little to no residual bitterness.

This wasn't already in the database so I've added it. Made with mostly Vermont ingredients, including the hops.

Pours a blonde-ish amber with a thick head that fades to leave some lacing in my glass. Very nice presentation.

Buttery malt with grassy hops. Fresh. Not overwhelmingly hoppy. Served in a "growlette", which is smaller than a growler.

Ditto on flavor. Crisp, buttery malt and grassy hops. Chewy. Some pine notes. A bog standard APA that's darn tasty.

Carbonation levels are just right too. Very mellow. The freshness only makes it tastier.

You can't go wrong with this one. I'm surprised that it hasn't already been added.
