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.

Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops notes with some bitter notes easily noticeable. Taste is also dominated by some citrus hops notes with quite bit of bitterness with a non-descript malt backbone. Body is light with good carbonation. Standard IPA which lacks some floral hoppy aromas.
