Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Pint on draft at Grand Lodge in Killington, Vermont.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow/orange/mangoish color with a big foaming white head. Lots of lace on way down.

Aroma: Lots of fruity aromas. Melon, honeydew, lemon, citrus. Some tropical notes. Pine.

Taste: Follows nose, with a touch more grapefruit and pine. Mango, pineapple. Fruity, flavorful IPA.

Mouthfeel: Worth sipping. Fairly boozy.

Overall: Very nice IPA. Can compete with some of the big ones like Lawson’s and Heady.
