615. Zero Gravity Conehead

Zero Gravity ConeheadPicked up this growler at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury, Vermont. Unlike Maine, Vermont allows retails stores to fill growlers with beer and Craft Beer Cellar has a 6 tap growler bar which had all Vermont beers on when I was there. This is a great idea and I hope Maine follows suit in the coming years as it is a great way for retailers to increase their sales and for small breweries that do not offer bottles or cans to expand their distribution.

Conehead is a wheat ipa and everything about it follows what you would expect from a wheat IPA. The color is a deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma is oranges and wheat which actually work quite well together. Taste is very similar with a solid hop start and a sweet malt finish. Almost no bitterness which is what I prefer. Conehead was extremely easy to drink and worked well on its own or with a meal.

Really enjoyed this beer and hope that Maine starts allowing retailers to fill growlers in the near future.

Brewers Description: Our single-hopped Wheat IPA. This beer was launched as part of our I.P.April– a month long celebration of hoppy brews–and we decided to brew it with a different hop each year. Until we brewed it with Citra and then, well, we never turned back. Completely satisfyingly awesome in its crispiness and over-all well-rounded hopaliciousness. This beer might just be your Rushmore.
