ACBF pour - thought it was labeled as a DIPA...oh well
A-Pours bright orange with a good head for such a small pour.
S-Lots of citrus character. It smells like a few different type of citrus fruit. Some green grass and a simple malt bill.
T-Grapefruit flesh and rind, oranges and some piney flavor. There's some sort of apples flavor too. Soft floral hoppiness. Malt is biscuity and sweet. There seems to be a light diacetyl flavor going on.
M-Medium bodied. Standard bitterness. Moderately carbonated.
O-Had its highs and lows but it was worth at least trying a sample.

Served on tap in a pint glass.
Appearance: Hazy orange. Thick white head with mild lacing on the glass.
Smell: Hops, pine, citrus and sugars
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter pine and hops with a goid citrus to balance it out.
Overall: Pretty goid IPA I would have this one again for sure.

22oz bottle, given as a gift, poured into tulip glass.
A - Hazy, golden hue with two finger creamy white head on pour. Head dissipates quickly, moderate lacing.
S - Brown sugar grapefruit, woody notes in the background. Very rich and inviting.
T - Rich malt balanced expertly with a woody herbaceous hop profile that ends on a mild grapefruit juice note. No flat bitterness on the finish, dries out clean and I dig it. One of the best bottled IPAs I've had in a while.
M - Creamy and luxuriant, well-balanced carbonation, dries out clean on the finish without the lingering acrid quality problematic in a lot of bottled IPAs.
O - A fantastic IPA, I wish I could get this on tap but the bottle was brought back from Vermont as a gift. Guess I have another thing to look forward to on a future visit!

They were handed out along with Lawson's at the 8/8/14 Heady Topper line at Hunger Mountain Co-Op. Who am I to refuse a new DIPA?
22 oz. bottle, cannot find bottling date poured into Belgian ale glass.
Amber liquid, decent head, good lacing, little retention
Smells full of citrus and pine. More sweet malt up front than your typical VT DIPA hop bombs. More West Coast oriented as well.
Taste is citrus and malt. Quite good. Medium bodied, a little carbonation, alcohol hidden. Good balance.
A very good surprise bottle. Will have to add to must-buys next time I am in VT.

22oz bottle. Pours a translucent brownish orange with a half inch of creamy head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is fruity and piney hops. Green apple, mango, pear and some guava. The taste is maltier than expected but still very fruity. Green apple, pear, and mango followed up nicely by some piney hops and the bready malts. Pretty noticeable alcohol burn. This one is billed as a IPA but certainly straddles the threshold of DIPA/IPA. Creamy mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation. Overall, this is a very good IPA I would grab again. I am interested in trying more from these guys.
App- 4 A- 4.25 T- 4 M-3.5 O-4 = 4

First had: on tap at Crop
Hazy, golden pour, with a bubbly white head; moderate retention and a few spots of lacing. Grainy aroma with a good dose of citrusy hops. In the taste, lemony hops, pine, ammonia, bitter and dry, biscuity and somewhat grainy malt base, apple skins in the finish. Not bad, not great. Light-medium body, crisp, but overall a bit lacking for the style; homebrewy. With so many great IPAs in the VT region, there's really no need to throw this sub-par one into the mix.
