Picked up this bomber on a recent Vermont trip.

Pours slightly cloudy with a beautiful light amber orangy glow with some golden highlights. Large
foamy off white head that reduces slowly. Starts off with a fizz of bubbles that slows to a lazy pace. Thick foamy lacing clings to the glass with a dappled foamy film that sticks around.

Smells of sweet malts, some great bright malt complexity going on here with some butterscotch too. Fresh hop aromas are pouring out of the glass. Tropical fruits, pine and distinctive hop flower pollen, Golden rod pollen like I would say, Pineapple and a hint or grapefruit.

Tastes of golden honey and Vermont wildflower pollen, go sniff some goldenrod in August to pick this up. Nice tropical fruits and a good hop bite balanced by an interesting bright malt complexity. Hop bitter a tad out of balance only because the smooth honey like malts create such a contrast, a good thing overall that smooths out as you go. A touch of grapefruit skin on the finish.

Nice medium body with a viscous feel, just the right amount of carbonation fills the mouth and delivers the flavors well.

3.36/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy golden/orange with a persistent fine white head. Flavor profile provides noticeable bitterness, but no prominent floral or citusy notes. This leans to the resin/pine side of the IPA flavors, but those fade quickly leaving just a lingering bitterness. Aromatics are excellent and promise some flavors that don't appear. Good but it is missing something.

Very nice IPA, very flavorful, nice amber color and foamy head. Visited the brewery in person on a clear and crisp January day. The owners are very friendly. I'll look forward to visiting again in warmer weather when the main tasting room is open and the view of the mountains of Vermont is green again.
