Pours a hazy orange color with a hearty 2" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface covering with some large bubbles. Citrus and hop bitterness is most notable in the aroma. Caramel, orange, some pink grapefruit, and an earthy hop bitterness creates a nice IPA. Crisp throughout with some dryness arriving late. Refreshing and easy to drink.

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.

Bright golden orange body, hazy, four plus billowing, rocky, bone china white foam. Good stretchy lace

Inviting citrus aroma, plenty of orange and grapefruit.

A solid sweet malt foundation coats the tongue. Fruity middle, fresh. Mild bitterness.

Prickly medium mouthfeel stimulates the tongue.

A good IPA that probably gets overlooked some in Vermont.

On tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury, VT.

Pours a light copper color, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells typically IPA-like, some pine, grapefruit, and caramel malt. Nothing to lead me to believe this will be exemplary in any way.

This one has a nice balance between hops and malt, but I don't necessarily want a nice balance. The malts are caramelly and doughy, providing sweetness, while the hops simply provide a bit of bitterness, pine and such. Tasty, enough, but pedestrian.

Native IPA is medium bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel, and a lower amount of carbonation.

I've heard their Fair Maiden is much better than this one, so I'm excited to try it.
