4.11/5 rDev -2.8%
Sampled at the Vermont Brewfest.
A-Pours a hazed medium orange color.
S-After a long day of sniffing and sipping, this one stood out. I picked up aromas of tropical fruit, lots of citrus and all that good stuff.
T-I enjoyed the sweetness level here. It was clearly hop forward but the hops had a sweet, juicy, fruit flavor. Candied oranges, peaches, tangerines. Finishes bitter with some green hop notes.
M-Has good body to it. Light resins. Bitter.
O-One of the more memorable beers I tried at the Fest. An Imperial IPA that stood its ground with the other, better known VT hop bombs.

I picked up three 22oz bottles at the Brewery last weekend ($6.00 ea) and am now diving into the last one, out in the 'Zebo....
Using a Sammy perfect pint glass, the color is a deep golden, much like apricot jam, with a bit of haziness. Carbo is scattered but steady, and the head is white, quite thin and fine, clinging to the edges. Wasn't too much lace to speak of, though. The aroma is of enticing, sweet fruit, like peach, orange and apricot. Tribute is a fairly smooth bier, and the body is a bit more than medium.
Taste is sweet as well, though not as much as the aroma might intimate. There's a touch of toasty malt, followed by the fruit noted in the nose: apricot, orange and peach. This is like a breakfast bier - nice fruity jams spread on whole-grain toast! It also has a smidge of pithy, piney action, and all of these fruity notes linger well in the finish. All in all, I rather like this bier; it's a well-made offering. I am also happy to be able to support our Vets as they pursue their dream. Prosit!!
