Style: American IPA

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.

Had on tap. Pours hazy, light yellow in color with 3/4 inch head. Taste is lemon, orange, and grassy hops. Slightly bitter, juicy, with moderate carbonation. Makes for a very tasty IPA. Good beer that has me curious to try more Fiddlehead offerings.

On tap, pours a clear gold. Nice dense white head. Smell is a little muted, but has some citrus and pine. Taste is a solid pretty classic IPA. NIce beer.

Golden draft pour with a finger of dense white head. Great retention and lacing. Juicy nose that is somewhat reserved, mainly fruit and berry. Even keel taste with nothing over the top. Very crushable.

On tap at The Skinny Pancake in Burlington.

Pours a murky orange.

Smell is very tropical, loads of mango, lemon and some pine.

Taste is nice and dank. Tropical fruit, mainly mango and pineapple, play on your tongue. Lovely!

Mouthfeel is so good, soft and a bit oily.

This is an outstanding IPA, just great balance, huge flavor and a great mouthfeel.
