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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Had this on 2013-03-13 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy amber-orange with a 1.5-finger pillowy white head. Looked nice at first but there are some big-time floaties in this brew.

S - Toasted bread with orange marmelade and light floral. Pretty mild.

T - Citric hop forward, orange tea, mild toasted malt, grapefruit flesh and zest. Dries quickly and finishes with some tart orange and lingering bitterness. Tastes good.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Prickly, crisp, lightly resinous. I could feel a few floaties going past the back of my throat. Other than the particles, I liked the feel.

O - Well, if it weren't for the floaties and the mild aroma, this beer would certainly have scored higher since I liked the flavor. I'm going to try look for another bottle to try; hoping the particles and light aroma were the exception rather than the rule.
