4.43/5 rDev +1.1%

Very very very very similar to gandhi bot.....multiple samples would be needed to differentiate the two in a blind taste test. Edge Bot!
Nonetheless, this is a fantastic brew worth the try if you come across!

4.75/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a 16oz can (canned on date: 5/19/14) into an oversized balloon/tulip glass
A- Pours a slightly hazy, deep orange hue with about a 1 finger creamy, white head with very little retention. Much more attractive than its other locally canned entity. (4.75)
S- Wow...impressive considering the local competition. Sweet tropical fruit and citrus notes on the nose: mango, pineapple, orange, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit in addition to a subdued pine dankness. (4.75)
T- The malt backbone hits first and helps prepare the palate for the upcoming hop assault. The residual bitterness morphs from citrus rind to pine to an onion/garlic vibe. Well balanced for an unbalanced beer. The 8.2% ABV is very well hidden...actually, undetectable. (4.75)
M- This falls in the category of medium. Creamy carbonation is mild but does the job nicely. (4.75)
O- Definitely another winner for the style. Although comparisons to the local competition will be the norm, I find 2nd Fiddle's aroma and flavor profile to fall much closer to Stone's Enjoy By IPA, another world-class DIPA that people cannot seem to get enough of. That said, hopheads can rejoice with another year-round hop monster being produced in Northern Vermont that has (and will continue) to receive accolades from all that are able to acquire it. (4.75)
