Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a cloudy burnt orange color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Messy clingy white lace. The aroma started off with some mango and pineapple sweetness, a touch of soft grain/wheat and then some light berries. The flavor yields to the sweetness initially and ends up bringing in a light blended juiciness from the mango/pineapple. Light piney bitterness for balance and good taste. Crisp sweet semi-bitter yet tropical sweet aftertaste flowing into the finish cleanly. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, with a leniency to the medium side. Moderate carbonation. ABV feels appropriate. Overall, pretty good AIPA trying to lean towards that NE hazy styled IPA with that juiciness trying to come forth like many others in this region. Does it? I think this is Lost Nation’s effort to compete but ends up staying just a tad underneath from that claim. I’d still have this again.

Poured from 16oz can. Nice medium orange cloudy appearance. Small 1 finger head. Lots of nice tangerine and orange aroma. Solid hop punch and finishes with moderate bitterness. Not quite the smooth juicy sweet finish like some other NE IPAs but finishes more "west coast". A little thin in body and IMO missing a touch of malt balance/sweetness. Definitely a solid IPA by others in Vermont/NE I prefer.

Drinking this pretty fresh. Dated 1.24.17.

Nice hazed appearance, no lacing. Great aromas of tangerine orange, pineapple, peach, honey, ripe mango, spicy dankness... sweet sweet fruit juice. Palate follows - nectarines, candied orange, grapefruit peel, spicy plastic dankness, herbal note and sweet slightly gummy yeast note. Light-medium bodied with a bit of creamy texture, maybe a bit much on the carbonation. Another good ipa from lost nation, overall the palate was a bit of let down from nose, but it's still a great and easy drinking ipa... all of the lost nation ipas are so aromatic and easy drinking, and that in and of itself can make the perfect beer for certain occasions!

Lost Nation is one of Vermont's most overlooked and underrated breweries. Roll Away pours a translucent gold, not overly hazy, but certainly not clear. Smells of lemon and grass. Taste is some lemon, a little bready, and a sharp hop bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, not thin, but not thick or sticky. Overall, another winner from LN. This beer holds upagainst the 8% DIPAs out there, but does it with a fantastic 6.5% beer.

LN continues to brew top notch beer. Glad this has seemingly become a year round offering.

Tall can...2/15/17 canning date

Pours clouded, dull orangey/amber, yes-turbid...oatmeal cap lasting nicely, leaves some low sheeting and then higher bands of stick.

Juice bomb alert from the sniff

On the palate its ripe tropical fruit...pineapple and grapefruity goodness.....nicley crafted and well worth having a pint or two or picking up a 4 pack...or a case if you find it at your local bar/shop

Apricot golden colored and slightly opaque with a white sizzly head that settles out quickly. Inviting aroma of tangerine and orange rind, a hint of lemon.

Dy and crisp mouthfeel with tingly carbonation leads to interesting flavors of grapefruit rind, lemon zest and faint pine. Moderate bitterness. Hops flavors could be more front and center. A little overcarbonated.

Poured from a can, nice hazy orange, white head with decent lacing. Nice fruit hop, orange, grapefruit, and even some pineapple I think. Taste does not jump quite as much as aroma but outstanding none the less. Medium to light mouthfeel with a touch of lingering bitter. Overall an outstanding IPA
