BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Fiddlehead Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Always happy to see this on local menus. Very hard to try other offerings if the bar is serving Fiddlehead IPA!

Overall this is a nice IPA but no where near the IPA Mastermind or Double Fiddle are. Nice citrus and fruity malts with a light bitterness, not as much going on here.

On tap at Conley's. Kinda NEIPA, not quite full bomb like some others. Nice. Best of the three IPAs at our table (Mast Landing, Aeronaut).
