New Ranking 3.25 (my own personal guess). Not to be one of those people....but this beer was WAAAAY better last year. The 2015 version has little to no nose and the taste is a thinly masked booze taste. Oh well...maybe next year will be better.

What an outstanding beer. All of the DIPA's coming out of Vermont have been quite a treat. But, what I am, happiest to say is: out of all the great ones (i.e. double sunshine, heady topper, & the multiple fiddlehead varieties), each is slightly different. This beer is no exception. SO flavorful. SO drinkable. Just generally delicious.
