Nearly white in appearance, just enough yellow to disable it. Smaller head but decent streaky lace.

Rather benign aroma of malt and mango. There's a faint floral hop background.

Mild start that's similar to the smell. The hop, though, comes through quickly, stronger and more bitter. Good carbonation with a thinner body. Long raw, hop pellet aftertaste.

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a pure opaque dark yellow-ed paper color trimmed by a small white foamy head softly dissolving. Light concave lace wound around the glass.
The aroma had a nice sweet piney character and sweet orange pulp. White pepper and some sweet wheat spice up the back end nicely.
The flavor melds the white peppery spiciness to the piney and orangey sweet pulpiness. Mild orange pulp to rind-like bitterness runs into the pine and white pepper in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation and ABV gets the right groove. Mild stickiness in the finish along with some white pepper and pine.
Overall, for a wheat IPA, I'd say I was a bit surprised to find the wheat portions as low as they were. Still, I wasn't bothered by the lack there of - it was just something I noticed. Of course, I'd have again.

Pours a creamy, bright yellow gold with a one finger fizzy off-white head.

Smell is aromatic and sharp with peach and orange and a bit of earth to it.

Taste is similar with a strong grapefruit, pine and peach hit up front that fades into a lingering earthy orange finish that is complimented by a light, nutty sweetness of the multi-grain malt.

Feel is lighter than most NEIPAs of this consistency, maybe uplifted by a moderate amount of effervescence. Bitterness is nearly absent, allowing for the hops to define it all.

This is a really well done NEIPA that hits all the numbers well. Not sure how much impact "multi-grain" has on this one but there is a sort of light nuttiness in the finish that may be its signature. Just remarkably well done and well worth the trip to VT or Burlington specifically to seek this one out.

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 1/2 inch creamy white head over a cloudy/murky, golden/straw body with some lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (orange), tropical fruit (mango), and a bit of onion. Taste of the aforementioned fruit with some pine resin and citrus pith bitterness on the finish. Good feel and overall, a BBCo IPA that I like. Cheers!
