On-tap at Three Penny Tap Room, Montpelier, VT over the weekend.

A- Fairly hazy yellow bodied poured tap to a pint glass with a one finger, frothy white head. Pretty good retention and a big ring leaves plentiful sheets and lace drizzle.

S- Not overly pungent even for a session IPA but a helping of dank hops with tropical, citrus and stone fruit attributes seeps from the glass. Basically clean besides that.

T- Strengthens here with a deep, slightly juicy fruit hop character with notes of tangerine, apricot, smooth grapefruit and orange (not bitter or aggressive), lemon rind and slight floral. Slight base grains and bread provide a minimal, clean base flavor.

MF- Crisp and light bodied but a creamy, fluffy consistency provides a platform to prevent the body from being too fizzy. Carbonation medium-high with a moderate bitterness lingering on the taste buds.

Good but probably just a shade beneath All Day and Enjoy By for me and also about 2.5x more expensive. Another good offering from Lawsons but other great options exist.

Lightly hazy golden body beneath a short head of white. Average head retention and lacing. Bright, fresh, citrusy and piney hop aroma with some sweetish malt coming through as well. The flavor follows with a bold bitterness that anchors it and brings it to a dry, bitter, and hoppy finish. Citrus, but mainly pine lingers for quite some time.

Crystal clear neutral gold color. Small head but it leaves a lot of blanketing lace.

Funky, sludge like smell--not far from sewer work. Earthy would be a compliment for this.

The taste is a definite step up but with a strong earthy feel. I get a good base of lightly toasted malt and a neutral bitterness. Body and carbonation are both rather neutral. Dry and bitter finish. Long aftertaste.
