look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light copper colored brew, halfway between opaque and clear. Thin white head on top. Served a little warm but with decent carbonation.

Some faint pine resin hop aroma, hints of citrus. Light cracker malt underneath.

Satisfying rough bite of hoppiness satisfies the palate. Good hoppy pine flavor, with adequate amount of citrus mixed in. Solid malt base underneath carries the hopping well.

Nice dry, clean aftertaste, pleasant finish. Very well rounded IPA for a brewpub, hopping does not fall short from the bittering through the flavor and aroma. Beer tastes bright, does not fall flat, and and finishes clean. Best microbrewed IPA in the Burlington area I've found.

I had the 5th Anniversary TLA at their celebration, and it was great. The aroma of this is just crazy, it smells like a bag of fresh hops, and you can really taste all the complexity of it. It's got a amber to almost reddish color to it and it holds a nice decent head for a while. I'm not sure if they just called it the 5th anniversary or if it was different from their normal one, but it was really great. Something about it was just so good!

Had on tap at Flatbread in Burlington.

A: Slightly hazy golden orange, little carbonation bubbles releasing to the top. One finger white head that dissipated quickly, decent lacing.

S: Some citrus and pine notes, but not in your face, much more on the subtle side.

T: More pine than citrus on the taste profile. There is a little bit of lemon rind though. Nice bready malt backbone.

M/D: Medium bodied, very crips, leaves a slight bitterness. Very drinkable, was a good beer to go with my pizza.

The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Sly messy lacing. The aroma starts off with a sweet bready blend into some lemon zest, and citrusy hops. The flavor leads to a nice blend between the malts and the hops. Really nice crisp balance. Bready citrusy aftertaste with a quick semi-wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice balanced bitter to sweet blend laying down on my tongue. Overall, very well balanced AIPA that I would have again.

Served in a pint glass.
This version has been mixed with some of the Sim City IPA that was previously on tap.

Pours a cloudy orange/gold color with a one finger white head that leaves medium lacing. Hoppy aromas of grapefruit and pine. There is a light pine flavor up front that mellows into a smooth grapefruit finish with no bitter aftertaste. Light bodied, medium carbonation, this IPA leaves a very clean mouthfeel. The smooth, balanced finish leaves you craving another sip to taste those delicious hops.

Served on cask. Hazy golden amber color, with a classic cask looking head. Big retention and nice lacing. Aromas of pine, citrus hops, bready malt. Flavor is nicely bitter and hoppy up front, more on the pine side, with plenty of biscuit-like malty backbone. A bit of citrus on the linger.
