I had really high hopes for this one since I enjoyed Limbo so much and Vermont has a pretty good reputation for DIPAs in 16 oz cans. Love the can design on this one.
The beer pours a super clear copper color with a thick white head. Aroma was a mix of tropical fruits and a bit of pine. Overall the aroma was not as big as I expected from an 8.7% DIPA. Taste was just OK with those tropical fruits and pine but also a solid malt backbone and big lingering bitterness. Much more of a traditional IPA just bigger and different than so many of the murky, juice bombs that are out there today. Alcohol was well hidden and overall a beer worth trying but not one that I will seek out again.
