The Shed IPA

The Shed IPA

Tonight’s brew is The Shed Brewery’s IPA. The Shed used to be brewed up in Stowe VT but was acquired by Ottercreek Brewery which brews in Middlebury VT. This past summer I was up in VT and stopped into the Ottercreek brewpub. I got to try a couple of the Shed beers on tap and I found them to be tasty beers. Fast forward to last week when I was at Julio’s on my most recent beer run. I saw the Shed IPA was being distributed in six packs and I had to bring some home.

The IPA pours a hazy orange color with a fluffy yellowish one finger head. Right off the bat I can smell the hops. The hops smell citrusy, light and floral. The beer tastes better than I remember (and better than I noted in my Untappd app). It has an almost west coast hoppiness followed by a creamy bitterness. I don’t think the hops are overwhelming and the beer has a nice flavor flow. The Shed IPA has a medium length finish and at 6% ABV is very drinkable. I think I just found my new go to beer!
