Retail can. Gold, mostly clear with some floaties ring lace and island. Fruity melon and pine and herbal aroma. Medium fruity sweetness with assertive citrus and pine bitterness. Medium body with lively carb in the "American" style, as opposed to ultra soft and doughy like the NE style.

Had on tap. Very hazy orange body with a white collar. Smell has plenty of sweet grapefruit, orange, peach, and tropical fruits. Taste is a little on the sweet side, but hits the fruits hard, with the hops coming in at the last second in the delicate way. Feel is creamy, juicy yet surprisingly warm and has very little hop texture. Good niepa

From the crowler, it pours a hazy amber with a nice white head that soon reduces to a half inch and it leaves lacing. In the nose, it is citrus and then in the mouth, it is citrus and malt. Enjoyable.

I had a 13oz pour of this ($6.50) during a visit on 24FEB18 with Alewife...

The small tulip held a very hazy, rich golden-colored brew. Had a healthy, frothy white head which slowly sank back, with nice lacing on the glass. Aroma was an inviting mix of rindy citrus notes. Body was about medium, and it didn't raise much of a ruckus on the tongue.

Flavor had lots of citrus, with a bit of sweeter apricot at the start. But, overall, it was much more bitter than sweet. Had lots of rindy, pithy action throughout, and the finish was rather dry. All in all, a tasty, satisfying offering. Prosit!

Always a treat to get this fine DIPA. A very juicy jem that most people don't know about. Worth the trip if you ask me.

On tap at the brewpub. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt to golden orange color with a bar pour’s kind of thin little white head. Light lacing was here and there. The smell had a nice sweet to bitter grapefruit and sharp bitter pine with extra citrus rolling into a super light malt backbone. The taste was moderately sweet with a decent bitterness wanting to slide in for the balance but slightly just a tad staying in the background. Drying in the aftertaste with the citrus and leading on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable feel rolling into the feel. Carbonation felt good for a DIPA and a nice bitterness hitting my tongue appropriately. Overall, I’d say this was a nice DPA that I would have again.

Love this beer. A great under the radar IPA in one of the best spots in all of VT. Love the Crowlers so you can get more of the citrus bomb,
