Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-07-2012

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.

The beer pours a golden amber. Very cloudy. The smell of hops is less than anticipated. The taske is hoppy with a underwhelming finish. There is something missing from making this beer decent. Was hoping for a stronger hoppy hit but it hits you and quickly goes with a sharp after taste.

A: Pours out a very hazy amber color. As the bottle states, it is clearly unfiltered. One finger of off-white head. No lacing or retention to speak of.

S: Mild smell of grapefruit, dank pine, and breadiness.

T: Similar to the smell with some floral tones in there as well.

M: Medium light body with medium carbonation.

O: Meh. A real typical, traditional IPA. The killer is the quick dissipating smell that was already weak to begin with. It almost felt like an overly bitter pale ale. I won't be going back for any more of these.

I didn't much care for this beer at all.
First the batch I got was or had to be contaminated because there was an aweful lot of floaters which looks unappealling to see the lest.
The aroma was mostly biscuit malts and not very hoppy. Even though this is an English style I would still expect to smell something.
Taste was very sweet and malty.
No this thing needs some help.
