Very unique malt bill. Stays juicy and creamy. Devastatingly drinkable and rich. I'm going to miss Vermont and Lawson's dearly :( How could so much great beer come from one area?

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter glass.
Pours medium amber with low bubbly head. Very nice lacing and retention.
Smell is very nice, some sweetness and hoppy floral aromas.
Taste was very interesting, the taste of caramel was very present for me but not overly sweet. Mixed with the delicious blend of hops, this caramel/hop profile was very unique on my tongue.
Mouthfeel was slightly sweet and sticky.
Overall, delicious and very unique.
