Poured from the 16 oz can into a willi becher.
Pours very clearm light amber with a little less than one finger of tiny bubble head.
Smells of decent hops, not overly aromatic, but what is there is nice.
Taste has good bitterness especially on the finish. Not overly hopy, nor is it too sweet. More of a west coast style IPA with malts in check. Not overly complex.
Mouthfeel is a touch dry which I enjoyed.
Overall, a solid beer.

Just poured from a 16oz can purchased as a 4pk in Montpellier VT. Weeks old at most.
Not a fan of the marketing ploy to copy heady topper. Can is black on chrome with the black plastic 4pk carrier. Respectful to heady, I poured this dipa into a pint glass, no can sipping and sniffing here. A pretty looking filtered ale, clear as glass in a crystal 40 orangish gold colour. Light fragrance of tropical fruit, some pine and other orange fruits. This is not a fruit bowl explosion. definitely a solid bitterness with almost a lingering alloy flavour. Im missing the "dank" weedyness that everyone loves to describe this potent, hopped up style. Easy to drink and no alcohol presence, as if it weren't a dipa. My can had no abv that I could see. A decent ale, but not something I'd purchase again. So many other options if in Vermont. Likely an unfortunate time to review this after a weekend of swilling fiddlehead second fiddle, hill farmstead ales and other local top tier products...

Poured 16 oz can into tall tulip glass. An almost clear golden-yellow with a finger and a half of tight, white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is somewhat dank and piney, with a bit of floral and citrus. Taste is really nice...dank, piney, floral and resinous with adequate but not overblown bitterness, and just the right amount of malt sweetness. Opens up more as it warms. Mouth is good, refreshing, perfect carbonation and weight. Overall, a surprisingly good DIPA. This is not a typical Vermont style IPA, but more reminiscent of a west coast style. Well done!

outstanding IPA. fruity tropical citrus aroma. Cedary pine taste. washes over the tongue and lingers a delicious hop.

Great IIPA. Given the ABV, it drinks incredibly well. Very fragrant, almost a tropical fruit smell. This is my first bet I've tried from these guys, I'll have to find more.

Can: Poured a clear amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with some earthy hops notes is pleasant enough. Taste is not as sharp on hops as I would have expected with some citrus notes and a lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not as much floral hoppy notes as I had expected form a Vermont IIPA. May be due to fact that brewery is only starting.
