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.

Cloudy, golden yellow color. Decent start to the head, good lasting time. Leaves some spotty/ring lace.

Plenty of floral hop and alcohol warmth to the nose. Decent malt presence.

There's an apricot like element to the flavor. The hop is like black pepper on the tongue and is strongest in the swallow. Good body with an elevated carbonation. For the style, short aftertaste.
