Bright orange, small head fades fast, laces really well down the glass. Largely citrus aroma of grapefruit, orange, and citrus pith. Taste follows through with pleasant grapefruit and citrus dominant flavor. Touch of doughy malt and caramel keep bitterness in check and bring great balance. No sign of the ABV. Medium body, creamy on the palate and a pleasantly dry finish round out a nearly perfect mouthfeel. Overall a top tier DIPA that brings big citrus flavors and great balance to the hop experience.

i never tire of these vermont ipas, each one always better and fresher than the next. this one is a bright honey color with a tall and lasting head snow white and persistent. the nose here is just great, citra hops and something else in the C family, maybe centennial, it has that woody bitey bitter undertone behind the citrusy fruity hops on top. i like the layering of the hops here, and find the beer beautifully balanced, not with grain but between bittering hops and late kettle and dry hopping characteristics, well scheduled. i also find it scary drinkable at over 8% abv, it drinks more like 6%, with no trace of alcohol in aroma or flavor. the body get just a little sticky for me, a tiny bit filling, but the flavor is so good and fresh it keeps me sipping quickly. i was extremely impressed with everything fiddlehead had going on my recent vermont trip, just blown away how far they have come in a year.
