As a Vermonter surrounded by many incredible craft IPA's, this brew is securely in my top three favorites of all time. It has a vibrant, bright orange color to it, and leaves a gorgeous lacing on the glass. The taste for me is complex, with multi-layers, but doesn't over do it, allowing the hops to shine. It's 7% alcohol percentage is perfectly in the middle of the range I like my IPA's to be, about 6.5%-8%. It's price point at about $6.99 also makes this perhaps the best IPA for its value. Make sure to add this to your must-try list.

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.
