[Disclaimer - this can is over a year old]

Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a 2 finger sudsy head that fizzes away rather quickly.

Aroma has sweet pineapple and grapefruit notes along with some soapiness.

Taste is similar - maybe a little more sweet than I like but not over the top. light to medium caramel malt body is noticeable behind it and well blended with the hops.

Feel is soft and seltzer-y along with a light bitterness and a light to moderate alcohol burn in the finish.

This is definitely worth the high score and as VT DIPAs go it is among the better balanced (I find them to be typically too malt-forward, but that's just my tastes). This one packs a punch and can be deceiving. Very well done and glad I got the chance to try it despite it sitting in the back of my fridge forever.

Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Slightly above averag head retention & lacing

S: Tons of orange & tangerine, a little breadyness & pine once warm

T: Follows the nose, alittle dryness & just a little grassyness, just a kiss of lime up front.
Woody & grassy hops try to do battle battle with citrus hops as this warms. Finishes slightly dry with piney & herbal hops pushing past citrus & breadyness

MF: Medium body, fairly restrained carbonation, nice balance

Top notch Imperial IPA, very drinkable, a nice blend of old & new flavor trends

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..
