Drinking 4 months after package date. Extremely smooth and not acridly bitter. It has amazing flavor with above average hop aroma. Flavor/Aromas of floral peach and acidic lemon dominate with a grassy background.

Slightly hazy, full of chunky hop sediment... I like it, but it can be offputting for others.

The head brewer definitely knows how to use hops and nail the water profile. For the American IIPA (Vermont) style, any improvements would be with yeast/malt selection/usage. Overall, as an IPA homebrewer, I am impressed.

On tap at Vermont Tap House. This was poured into a flared tulip. The appearance was a dark burnt orange color, almost muddy. Bar pour’s kind of slim white head quickly dissipates. Some messy lace. The aroma takes on some sweet peach, some subtle grassiness. Bitter lemon rind, subtle juiciness. The flavor yields to the pressures of the bitterness, still subtle sweet hops and malts do a justice of blending nicely. Fully balanced bittersweet aftertaste flowing into the finish, but that’s fairly bitter, and dry. On the palate, this one say about a light to medium on the body. Nicely carbonated. And a great amount of bitterness subjugating my tongue into submission. Overall, this was a very good DIPA that I would have again.

On draft

Heavily hazed - nice looking delicate fields of sheeting

Tropical fruit nose

Juice bomb with ripe pineapple abounding

Worthy and fresh tasting DIPA

Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over an light amber body with scant lacing. Nose of pine, citrus, and slight tropical fruit. Taste follows with less than average bitterness which I welcome. Nice feel and overall a job well done.

First had at Zero Gravity's Pine Street Brewery, Burlington, Vmt., on sample-size draft into snifter as part of $8 Flight of 4. Unsuccessful, but at least in a whole new way from other failed DIPAs I have tried. Ironically, the brewery copy for this beer said, "Make good choices."

Pours a nice golden hue in my glass. First tried this at the 2016 VT Brewers Festival.

Crisp with floral citrus notes.

Bitter citrus and perhaps pine notes upfront.

Oddly sweet finish. Solid otherwise.

"Choice Make Good!" as Charlie Kelly would write. Check it out!

Nice pillowy head. Dark, cloudy. Almost a red tint. Elegant hop nose. Floral with a touch of lemon. Booze forward and unbalanced. Over-bitter hops make way to sweet malt with no transition. Definitely potential here with more refinement. Good feel, light and thick.
