3.75/5 rDev +5%
Purchased in Winooski outside Burlington on my mid-April Vermont trip.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Harpoon IPA glass.
a; Slightly hazy Amber-orange with a finger thick white head which receded to thick even surface foam and spotty lacing.
s:Mild biscuit malt.
t: Light to moderate hop bite forward over a medium bscuit malt base. Pretty dry finish.
Light fruit notes later, but also some lingering bitterness.
m; Light to medium with good body and heavy carbonation tingle.
o; A pleasant, easy drinking ale which feels substantial yet is quite refreshing.

3.1/5 rDev -13.2%
Served on-tap in a plastic Shaker pint at Ken's Pizza (Burlington, VT).
A: Washed out amber-light brown with a short-lived beige 1-finger head that leaves no lacing. (3.0)
S: A bit of sweet caramel malt and herbal/earthy English style hop notes but really nothing providing much inspiration (3.25)
T: The flavor lands with about as much of a thud as the aroma -- some unassuming one-dimensionallight-to-medium caramel maltiness with some herbal-earthy-lightly haylike/tealike hopping. No off-flavors or yeast character, just not a lot of character overall. (3.0)
M: Smooth and easy to consume with low carbonation and light body. (3.25)
O: A completely forgettable beer.
