BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Grassroots Brewing
Vermont, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This double IPA is a collaborative beer brewed by Shaun E. Hill of Hill Farmstead Brewery with Jacob Storm and Morten Lundsbak of Amager Bryghus (Denmark) at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT.

The name is inspired by one of Danish writer Hans Christian Anderson's travelogues; the beer represents a vivid but fleeting memory of a productive and wonderful visit by our Danish friends to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.

I wish I knew how fresh it was but the 16.9 oz bottle did not have a date on it.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Served in a ridiculously small half pint glass.

Appearance - Clear orange. Nice fluffy head. A bit of lacing and nice surface foam.

Smell - Some orange, skips the grapefruit, and goes right to pine. A touch musty and some malt sweetness.

Taste - Sweet malt right up front, but orange hops take hold. Very juicy. Pine hops take over throughout as the sugars drop off. Moderate bitterness and some grass. The finish reveals a bit of a toasty malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Has the sweetness of a DIPA without just a bit less body.

Overall - Interesting hop profile. Very nice. Expensive at the Pig though... I suppose that's not the beer's fault.
