473 ml. Can 3/31/19

A bit on the clearer side of yellow-gold coloration. A frothy, yet creamy all-white head just holds on tight with big lacy leftovers.

A righteously sweet scented hop aroma is very bold. Freshly crushed hop cone, pineapple, strawberry jam, hearty golden wheat and grasses within the locally sourced malted grains, makes me keep sniffing. The Galaxy and citra hops give off multiple layers of fresh and fruity hop cone aroma. Some interesting aspects within the nose are hints of sweet pickles and mango salsa.

O.k...whoa, the flavor actually remains very fruity....I mean, very sweet red-tropical style fruitiness! Jammy raz and strawberries, pineapple and tanfy citrus in vast levelsbof complexity. These two hops are a pretty powerful combo, as the jammy juiciness slowly gives way to some dry, earthy and hearty grain malt flavors and a crispy-dry texture. There is a dry-earthy bitterness in the finish that caps off a very complex experience.

The alcohol heat is pretty cranked, as the sweet hops and fat grain sugars create a 9% beast. This IPA is listed as a New England style, but many aspects do not fall into this style: The clearish golden liquid, the mostly sweet red fruity aroma and the West coasty like big heat and bitter, dry finish. All of these aspects are pretty excellent, but are excellent for an American 2xipa. The sweet, jammy fruit taste fromthe hops is very concentrated and very intense. The local grains and malty backbone have some excellent charecter, but the fruit juicy hops just totally dominate.

Be prepared for some major hop flavor and ratger heavy handed effects overall. Theres nothing "easy" or gentle about Prospect.

A slightly hazy and isle gold beer with a finger off white head. The nose is filled with peach, grapefruit, papaya and pine. Lightly sweet with a lot of peach and papaya. Maybe a little melon with some grassy flavors. Bitter piney finish.

Close to fingers of just off-white foam, airy with mounds of larger bubbles, tends to form large dimples as a result, while the lacing is wispy it sticks forever. Mild cloudiness to the golden liquid, few visible bubbles, if look very close up you can see superfine particulate. Juicy nose of tangerine to pink grapefruit citrus, tarry with notes of cannabis and kosher salt, the pineapple, mango, honeydew melon to nectarine fruit scents round out things, while mild the dankness outlasts the rest. Full-bodied, the carbonation doesn’t make much of an impression so it tends towards heaviness. Here too citrus dominated, grapefruit, blood orange and hint of lemon. Dry on the whole with a tacky, sticky mouth feel. More tarriness with the addition of fresh grassiness. Through the mid-palate softens with biscuit, fresh butter. and honey accents Pineapple, white grape, melon to mango fruit, very consistent presentation from nose to palate. If you let it get too warm the alcohol starts to show. Can’t say it is refreshing so wouldn’t say it’s an outdoorsy summertime beer. It wouldn’t be easy to put two but not hard to put down one.

Hazy and opague golden yellow in appearance--lots of floaties, but capped with a creamy and rocky head of white foam. Very good retention with sheets of lacing.
Smells like orange juice, mango, apricot, peach, honeydew melon, pineapple, passion fruit, a touch of sweet floral.
Tastes of orange juice, mango, peach, pineapple, honeydew melon, and guava. Juicy and ripe and slightly sour. Soft, doughy, creamy malt, slightly biscuit/cracker-like. Finishes dry with maybe just a slight hint of orange peel bitterness. Absolutely no lingering bitterness, however.
Medium-plus mouthfeel, not quite creamy but nice and full on the palate, moderately carbonated.

Simply a superb Vermont NEDIPA!
