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.

Bought this in a 4 pack cans. Marketing is oh so similar to Heady Topper. Silver 16 ounce cans.

It's excellent Double IPA with very similar taste to above mentioned beer. Definitely worth getting again

Canned 12/15/14.

Frosted orange body, not completely hazy as i can still see shapes through. Thick bubbling foam with a permanent bond all around the glass. Aroma is mostly oranges and that follows in the flavor. Creamy with a pronounced bitterness. My gripe with this one is it's very clean, likely filtered and as such loses a bit of personality. Wished it had more of an edge as i find that is more fitting with DIPAs.

Pours a darker gold with a huge frothy head into my glass. That is one hell of a lovely head.

Mango and grapefruit in the nose. Hints at something much hoppier underneath.

A wallop of citrus hits the taste buds, disseminating into grapefruit, mango and buttery malt.

Burns the mouth with bitterness as it goes down. Wow. Very crisp. Finish is actually a little dry.

I give 14th Star mad props on their take of the Vermont Double IPA, which should actually be a style here on BA. Tribute stands tall among legends such as Heady Topper, Hyzer Flip, Mastermind, Second Fiddle and Double Sunshine.

This beer makes me feel good. 5 stars for feel! Found this all around the area in bars and had many cans, some slightly aged. All were great experiences, so this beer is awesome in my book. Have it with a pizza, you'll be happy!

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.

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!!
