On tap at the Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT. 10oz pour into a Prohibition Pig snifter glass yesterday, 10/23/2013.

Looks a lot like Double Sunshine- hazy orange body, with a nice fluffy 1cm white head that retains quite well. Lots of lacing left on the glass as it goes down. Very pretty looking IPA.

Smells juicy as heck, mostly grapefruit. I don't really get a whole lot of anything else, not too complex but a very juicy, intense aroma that is sure to please any hophead that enjoys the smell of the likes of Zombie Dust and pseudoSue.

Flavour is quite citrusy, a bit less juicy than the nose would imply. Finishes with a bit of pine that isn't present in the nose. A fairly bitter but refreshingly dry finish. Pale malts aka caramel and biscuits, hold up just slightly enough that the bitterness isn't overwhelming.

Deliciously medium bodied mouthfeel that just feels so creamy and well-carbonated on the tongue. Palate is fairly bitter pine and feels quite creamy and resinous, but remains incredibly drinkable. This beer disappeared fast.

What separates these Vermont beers from the competition is the mouthfeel. So creamy, perfectly carbonated and drinkable... along with the ridiculous hop profiles to boot. This is very well done; not super amazing but incredibly well done and tasty.
