Hop profile seems a little different compared to sip of sunshine. Papaya and pineapple on the front end followed by resinous hop bitterness. Decent offering.

This beer was not one of the better doubles I've had. It was a bit too boozy for me. It was pretty good but I'd rather have Heady Topper or Sips of Sunshine. Good beer though.

This is stellar. It's everything sip of sunshine wants to be. It's right up there with the elite iipas. It's a melange of overripe passion fruits. Mild bitterness. Treehouse level mouthfeel.

8th Anniversary bottle acquired via trade.

L - Clear dark orange with two fingers of white head

S - Oddly sweet with butterscotch and caramel. Barely any earthy hops. Malt-dominant.

T - Really weird buttery taste. It's almost like an old Heath bar with butterscotch and toffee notes. Some faint hints of grassy hops and some wet pine tree. So odd.

F - At least the body is full, but those flavors linger. Drinkability is scarce.

O - I recall having this beer two years ago on a trip to VT and it was a citrus explosion and one of the best IPA's VT had to offer in a state full of world class breweries. I honestly do not know what has gone wrong with this beer. Is it a bad batch? Did the recipe change? I wish I could have done a full review of the beer I loved in 2014, but today, this is just plain bad. Sorry.
