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.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is a nice blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a nice strong piney burst of hops bitterness. Then some caramel and citrus sweetness quickly follows. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a vice nice IPA to drink for a whole evening.
