On tap at American Flatbread Burlington. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Deep orange. Hazy. Nice white head. A bit of lacing and surface wisping.

Smell - Whoa, simcoe. Grapefruit, garlic. You can smell the crystal malt, also. It has that raw sugar aroma to it.

Taste - Grapefruit and a strong caramel malt. Crystal malt sweetness, but it isn't cloying. Medium low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - The simcoe and crystal malt make a strong statement. If you like both of those things, you'll like this. I find them both to be very intense flavors.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a stiff medium burnt gold color with a finger and a half's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Slight stringy lace slid down with the sips.
The aroma had a nice semi-sweet to bitter orange pulp and rind playing with some bitter pine. Light contour of pineapple and a little bit of pear on the back end.
The flavor presented the orange pulp and bitter pine at first and then seemed to develop a nice balanced meshing of some more of that pineapple and pear. Light aftertaste of the orange, pine, pineapple and pear with a touch of white bread.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a hair under with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Semi-smooth almost bitter finish.
Overall, pretty nice AIPA that I could come back to.

Poured into a pint glass.

Pours an amber-honey color with a small white head, nice lacing, lightly carbonated. Strong cirtusy hoppy aromas leaving no doubt your drinking an IPA. Lemony, grassy flavors up front with a dry apricot finish, you can feel the hops all the way down your throat.

A fairly nice IPA. I had it at the brewery fresh. Certainly a better than average IPA that does not seem quite as good as their other IPA's. A nice beer but not spectacular.
