Apricot pour with a frothy finger of bone white head, nice looking beer.

Muted citrus and pine, prominent sweet malt.

Flavor a slight improvement over the nose, moderate juiciness but sort of muddled, this seems like one of two things: this beer showcases the malt bill, or it is an older bottle as there is no date, which is becoming more important to today's IPA consumer. My general rule is: no date, no sale.

There is a low amount of carbonation and it has an oily feel to it that isn't entirely unpleasant.

Was hoping for more from this one as I enjoyed their Pale Ale & IPA quite a bit. It sure would be nice to see some bottle dating like Foley's and Frost Beer Works have been doing on their bombers.

A: hazy; the color of dried apricots; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin collar; very little lacing;

S: apricot, orange, hay, spicy; a hint of onion/garlic;

T: mostly herbal from start to finish; a little pine resin up front; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate to high carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: didn't get the tropical fruit that other reviewers noted; no date on the bottle - maybe it was old;

An incredible brew. Purchased at the brewery, it is a fresh, clean and well-balanced DIPA. Much drier than HT, S of S and Second Fiddle, it has less of that thick, smooth (maltodextrin?) mouthfeel, but it tastes like Stowe smells and feels. Crop is a small, lesser known Vermont Brewery, but they do a great job with all their brews, and this is one of their best.

There's something in the water up in Vermont...or maybe it's the hops. I've never had a remotely disappointing IPA from them, I'm adding Doubletyme to the list.

Pours a gorgeous, very hazy pastel peach color with a lot of head that mostly fizzles away with time. The aroma is pure hoppy delicousness. Some sweet fruits - nectarine, orange, apricot - and a bit of candy sweetness too. A hint of onion and cut grass, which I don't mind a bit.

The taste is incredibly smooth and gentle, with a firm but light malt backbone that balances the hops just enough, plus some light lemony and floral flavors too, and just the slightest hint of bitterness staying with you in the finish. Not as deep or complex as the smell, but still rather nice.

The feel is right there - good medium body with a nice fluffy lacing to give an extra bit of smoothness to the beer. No hint of the high gravity of this one, and all the convincing I need to try this brewery out again if I ever make it up there.

Purchased at Healthy Living and poured into a tall tulip. Appearance was a hazy, light amber with a slight grey tint, topped by a finger of frothy head. Smell is citrus and pine. Taste was a little disappointing, reminiscent of some of my more mediocre homebrews. Mouth is OK, I guess. Overall, not too impressed with this one.

L: tangerine colored haze with about a finger and a half of head
S: oniony and garlicky with a pleasant finish of citrus and lemon peel
F: very nice full mouthfeel with a good hop presence
T: garlicky citrus similar to the smell. Starts off with a burst of that full bitterness similar to heady but finishes with more of a citrus orange. Pleasant DIPA would definitely buy again.

From the 650 ml. bottle. 2015 batch and sampled on October 15, 2015.

The color of the pour is a cloudy light to medium amber with a delicate and soft cream colored head that lingers.

Herbal, tropical, and some floral hops are the first sensations on the nose.

The body is about medium but on the smooth side.

I really taste the herbal and tropical hop flavors but a he toasted malt character unveils itself underneath as I work my way through the bottle. Still ends bitter. Nice drinking.
