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.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #71 (December 2012):

The second installment of the resuscitated brand. Bold and very drinkable, a good quaff all around. Seek it out if you are looking at a good example of an English IPA which over the years has been overshadowed by the creation and growth of the American IPA.

STYLE: English IPA
ABV: 6.0%

LOOK: Pale golden, opaque, decent lacing

SMELL: Citrus, herbal, leafy, evergreen, fresh tea, grassy, doughy biscuits

TASTE: Dryish moderate bodied, citrus zest, creamy, smooth, herbal, spearmint, shortbread, spicy, grainy, fresh cut hay, mildly estery, exotic fruit, vegtal, semi-dry hoppy finish
