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!

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.

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."

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.
