Picked up on my last trip up to northern VT.
Pours a nice fluffy looking 1.5 finger head, that fades semi slowly with nice soapy lacing, over super hazy sediment laden bright orange honey colored beer.
Nose has lighter hops, little grassy and floral, hint of citrus, a touch candy orange peel as well, light bready reddish malts underneath and hint of yeast.
Taste starts with a light bready malt base, some toasty reddish, with a little sweetness and hint of a yeasty flavor as the bottle conditioning seems to have take off. Sweetness leads into a light candy flavor, candied orange peel hops, which also transitions to more hops, a mild bitterness, hint of citrus hops, somewhat floral and candy almost earthy hops. Finish ramps bitterness as it dries and loses the malt balance, light lingering reddish malt flavor but mostly hops, grassy slight earthy and little citrus hops lingering for a while.
Mouth is med bodied, little fluffy and airy with plenty of carbonation.
Overall pretty good. Nothing crazy, and more of a pale ale than IPA, but decent profile. Decent malt base that balances but stays out of the way of the hops. The bottle conditioning seems to have taken off and added it's own mild profile, but gives the beer a nice robustness. Drinkable and doesn't offend on any account.
