English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Named after one of the famous ’front four’ trails on Mt. Mansfield, this I.P.A. is brewed in the English tradition of pale ales shipped from Britain, around Africa, to India. Those ales contained extra hops and a higher alcohol percentage, which both served as natural preservatives. This ale holds true to those original, defining characteristics. Formerly known as "National IPA" at The Shed Restaurant & Brewery.

12oz. bottle served in my SA Perfect Pint. Pours a dull, tangerine hue with a slightly hazy clarity and a dense, creamy, three inch, cream-colored head - this beer looks great in the glass. Nose expresses citrus rind and an earthy character. Taste follows nose; however, there is a pleasant, toasted malt character. Citric acid is interspersed throughout the flavor profile and finishes with a slightly earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body (but closer to light) with a lively, almost prickly carbonation. Acidity lightly stimulates the palate and sides of the cheeks. Overall, a pretty drinkable English IPA. Looking forward to trying more offerings from these guys. I'd love to see this on-cask.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, floral, herbal tea, grassy, pungent, toasted, and pale malts.

Taste: Nice citrus and tea hop flavor, tingly bitterness, pale, and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little bitterness.

Overall: A nice take on an EIPA with an American twist. I'll definitely revisit this one again.
