If you spend any amount of time in Vermont you are probably familiar with Prohibition Pig as they are a very popular beer spot in Waterbury. They recently opened their own brewery adding several of their own options to a very solid tap list. The actual brewery is located just behind the restaurant and sells crowlers and 16 ounce growlers.
Bantam was the only DIPA that was available when I visited and the only beer I brought home from the brewery. I sampled others when I was there and all were very good. Nice orange color with a thin white head and great lacing get this beer off to a great start. Aroma is slightly sweet and full of citrus goodness. Taste starts with a solid sweet malt base but quickly gives way to the tropical and citrus fruits. Carbonation is light but seemed like that was intentional as the other beers I tried at the brewery had similar levels. Clean, slightly bitter finish with absolutely no alcohol coming through even though it is 8%.
Overall very impressed with the beer from Prohibition Pig and I will have to get out there more often to enjoy the excellent food and bring back more beer.
