It’s been over a month since my last post; crazy busy summer with the family. Fortunately I have enjoyed some great beers and will be getting some of the reviews posted this week. School is back in session soon so hopefully I won’t go as long between posts for the rest of the year.
This one from Burlington Beer Company really surprised me as it was entirely different than the many other IPAs coming out of Vermont. Appearance is a deep orange with a thick tan head. Aroma is a very interesting mix of lemon, citrus and a great mix of grains. Taste starts with lots of sweet malts then you get the lemon, citrus and a bit of peppery hops.
Such an interesting beer and one worth seeking out; just don’t go into it expecting another Vermont IPA like those from The Alchemist, Fiddlehead or Hill Farmstead.
