Uncanny Valley

Burlington Beer Company IPA- New England / Hazy

The hearty, yet lightly malted golden grains are extensive including oats and wheat which is at a rather high complexity level. The hops are very piney, with a peppery kick, then Honeydew melon, tangerine and various stone fruits. Crisp bite, yet smooth. The nose is full of sweet fruits and golden grains.

Milkshake cloudy with a darker gold color. Minor but lasting head. Good ring lace initially, wide slippery streaks thereafter.

Light berry aroma with a stronger weedy hop nose. There's some earthiness on the second whiff along with white pepper spice.

There's some fruitiness as the swallow approaches. Fuller bodied with a below-average carbonation level. It's a bit boozy. Sweeter base but the swallow draws out the aforementioned white pepper. Relatively shorter aftertaste but it's very well balanced. This is a mellower NE IPA, which is more to my liking than the usual bombs.

Pours a deep hazy orange with a pillowy two finger head. Nose of tropical and citrus fruits is strong. Mouthfeel is pulpy. IT WILL BE JUICY--and it is! Nice combo of mango, orange and melon flavors that evolve into a dry, sustained slightly bitter finish. Really enjoyable NEIPA. Grab 4.

Absolutely phenomenal. Chased after drinking Lone Pint Yellow Rose all day. Hoppy enough yet very drinkable

Delivered in a clear pint glass, drawn from a tap. There's nothing that's not inviting here. The brew is a dull and opaque apricot-amber with a modest white head that endures. There's a strong piney hoppiness to the aroma. This drinks smoothly and bitter, a wonderful collusion for an IPA lover. As this begins to be quickly drained, an amazing graduated glass lacing is observed. Full flavored, bitter, yet amazing smooth, this is nothing short of a great one. The hopping is part piney and to a lesser degree, citrus-like. Obviously, this is well malted, or it couldn't have such a great body without compromise. Just a little more earthy malt inclusion in the taste and this one closes in on perfect.

This is a tasty NEIPA, with plenty of citrus and plenty of hop. The pour is cloudy, with a nice head. I always like Burlington beers, and this one another to add to the list. I do wish they would provide some details about the hops on their cans.

Pours a hazy light orange with a moderate head and light lacing.

Smells of slightly dank grassy hops with citrus and sweet fruit.

Tastes of slightly tart grapefruit, orange, lemon and pineapple with a barely bitter finish.

Medium light body with light carbonation. clean dry mouthfeel.

Very flavorful and drinkable! Burlington has never disappointed me !

This is just soooo good. These folks have mastered the NEIPA style - right there with Modestman for what we have available locally. Got this only a few weeks old and it's just sublime. So glad to see their cans have date stamps these days. I will be buying up every non-double-NEIPA they produce!

T.F: Semi-sweet... lots of tangerine and grapefruit mixed with mango and peach. Fruity... tea and tropicals. Medium bodied. Creamy and smooth. Modest hop bitterness and fruity finish.

L - pours hazy yellow with 2-finger, near white head. Good retention and lacing.
S - citrusy hops right from the pour. Orange and grapefruit. Really good.
T - follows the nose, with some bitterness.
F - smooth, near medium mouthfeel. Semi-dry finish.
O - on first sip, I said “oh, wow!” This beer did not disappoint. Really good and almost too easy to drink. Wanted to down it quickly, which I never do. Yummy!

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Hazy dark yellow with fluffy white head and lacing - good retention. Tangerine, mango, and pineapple on the nose. Sweet citrus and tropical fruit flavors, clementine, mango, with a touch of bitterness on the finish and lingering on the palate. Slightly watery mouthfeel. I’d be ok if they wanted to amp up the hops a bit, but that’s just my taste. I really enjoyed this beer and think it was one of the better ones I’ve had so far from Burlington Beer Co.

Can dated 9/8/21 into pint glass. Pours a murky gold with a persistent off-white head. Great lacing. Initial impression is a fairly malty NEIPA, with mango, orange rind, melon and a touch of pine. Mouthfeel is soft and chewy, with moderate carbonation. Finish is citrus fading to a slight bitterness. Another excellent NEIPA from Burlington!
