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.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a brilliant goldenrod honey with slight fog, foamy white head with dense froth. Nose opens immediately with notes of tropical fruit: pineapple, papaya, and passionfruit. Touch of apricot as well. Malt body is subtle but not hidden with flavors of biscuit and Nature's Own honey wheat bread. Big flavor profile that is juicy and long lasting. Semi sweet finish with a piney undertone. Fuck words. I need to drink this. But not too fast because I must cherish this moment until I can get back to Vermont.

4.15/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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!

Poured from the 22oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a nice slightly hazy honey straw color with minimal head typical for DIPAs.
Smells really nice, grassy, citrus, definitely hop forward. Would like a stronger aroma as what I do smell is really nice.
Tastes great. Dank grassiness, sweetness from a very mild malt presence which I look for in a Vermont DIPA. Really good flavor here. Reminds me to a degree of Fiddlehead IPA.
Mouthfeel is really nice and inviting.
Overall, I am very impressed with this bottle. I want to try more varieties from Crop!
