Somewhat tasty big hop beer. fresh can from Premier Gourmet. Lots of lace. Pretty crushable. Decent for the style. Solid, but certainly overated DIPA.

Really nice thick head. You don't see that often with NEIPAs. Aroma is a little muted, can't pick out the specific aromas here..kinda a blend of citrus and pine. Taste is a little fumey, spicey, sweet and moderate bitterness in finihs that lingers a little. Not sure I'm digging this one too much. Decent IPA but there are some negatives throughout that don't put this one into a top class of NEIPAs. 3rd/4th tier in the NEIPA making world.

Am I the only one who got one that tastes like there's some vinegar in it? Its not all vinegar. But its like hops and burning vinegar in the nose and then a white wine/vinegar in the mouth..

No date


A:
Pours a slightly navy gold with two inches of tight, white head that eventually dissipates. Good retention; rings of lacing. (4.25)

S:
Over ripe tropical fruit. Mango and Guava with sugar cookies and some minty-herbal-grass aroma in the background. (4)

T:
Follows the nose with a touch more body from the malt mixed in with the sweetness from the hops. Lots of mango and sweet orange, sugar cookie malt character. (4.25)

M:
Fairly soft, medium body with moderate carbonation and a dab of alcohol. (4.25)

O:
A mighty nice, very fruity IIPA.
It pours nice, bright gold with a fat head. The aroma and flavor are both of very sweet tropical fruits without any of The oily, pithy, citrus bitterness that often accompanies. Soft, sweet, drinkable, aromatic, barely bitter.
These guys make very enjoyable beers from what I've had and this is no exception. (4.25)

S: citrus but with a noticeable amount of sweet fruit too - peaches/melon/apricot, something along those lines. Smells fantastic

L: A straw color, about 3/4 inch of white foam, nice lace.

T: Right at the forefront is a strong hit of apricot/melon again. Then, taste shifts to hops, pine, and a fair amount of bitterness. Doesn't transition to a chemical-taste, though, like some less polished doubles.

F: Less carbonated than the other major VT doubles: SoS, HT, or some of the Hill Farmstead varieties. Astringent during the first 1/4, but much more pleasant afterwards.

O: Picked this up in a can just on the VT side. Likely came straight from Brandon. It reminded me of a handful of double IPAs that I've been trying in the area. A detectable fruity essence but with more bite in the second half of each sip. This is a bit too sharp for me compared to some of others, but compared to the vast majority on the market, this is a great choice.
