look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a- golden orange with a relatively quickly diminishing frothy head and moderate lacing

s- earthy and sweet, less like a traditional ipa

t- grapefruit nose gives way to earthy, almost mushroomy malt backbone

m- thin, little carbonation

o- with so many IPAs that taste identical, this one is definitely worth a try. Very tasty and unique, will definitely drink again.

A solid west coast style american IPA. Hands down the best beer they brew. Not northern VT quality, but a Southern VT go-to.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is an amber-copper coloring, with a frothy, film, off-white head that remains thin. Nose of wet, resiny hops, with grapefruit and mango in the backbone. Flavors of wet, peppery hops on the forward tongue, with a bold, tangy sweet caramel backbone. Very tasty and balanced, with a peppery and dry build as you drink. Decent lacing left along the glass. Light bodied. Pepper and pine linger on a slick, clean finish. Tasty and very crushable, this beer could get dangerous!
