4.4/5 rDev +13.4%
My previous rating was a slip of the finger on my phone.
This was a dangerously good IPA. Dangerous because it was 2pm and I was drinking a very good and rather strong IPA. It looked excellent, on par with the best DIPAs. The smell was just a tad lacking, I thought. The taste was heavy on citrus but the smell just wasn't quite there. I recall a very nice, dry finish to it, however, which I really like. The biggest bummer about this beer was that I could NOT get a growler of it to bring home. I really wish BA would make "Availability" a rank factor but, that aside, this was definitely worth the trip to the Vermont Pub & Brewery.

Served on-tap in an 10oz mug at Vermont Pub and Brewery (Burlington, VT).
A: Hazy golden with solid, sticky 1-finger off-white head with good retention and nice crusty lacing. (4)
S: Beautiful nose of mango, grapefruit, passionfruit, and orange with nice floral and a strong pine resin note as well. Maltiness is light caramel but mostly a light crackery grain note (4.25).
T: A delicious beer but I would not have wanted another one, but not because of flavor. The pine resin leads off but fades to a complex profile of fruit punchy flavors like passionfruit, mango, orange, and lime with a nice punch of grapefruit in the finish. No yeast and the alcohol is well-hidden. Very good flavor profile for sure.
M: The mouthfeel is not way off, but it does not finish as dry as it should. There is a sticky, oiliness that does not wash away, and the body is medium-full at least. The finish needs to be a lot drier to enhance the drinkability. Not bad, but just not where it needs to be in this area. (3.25)
O: If the mouthfeel improved, this would be a truly stellar find. As it is, it is still a very good beer that I am glad I had the chance to try -- a great nose with a superb flavor profile. Drying it out some more, and this would be a top-tier East Coast DIPA.
