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.

Thick beige cap, really sticky and thick with great head retention. The beer was mostly clear, orange in colour. Aromas of oranges and grapefruits, mild malt and sweetness, a bit of sharp citrus rind. Hoppy backbone with mild malt sweetness, solid bitterness, citrus (grapefruit and orange again). Grassy/spicy character with lingering bitterness. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation, faint warmth, drying on the palate. A straight ahead and nicely balanced IPA.

Hazy strong orange colour with a smooth, creamy, white head. Good head retention.

Lemony with some passionfruit notes. More floral than piney or fruity. Soft malt aroma.

Nice tropical fruit combined with a slightly resinous hop character. Light malt. Not bad.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation.

A decent if unexceptional beer. Mildly flavoured and relatively unexciting.
