For $8 per 22 oz bottle, plus tax, I think I can expect nectar of heaven, and though this comes close, it is not quite there. Nice IPA, great nose, and good hop flavor. Too hard to find. If they sold this for $5.50/22 oz bottle, Id be all over it like white on rice, but Pliny (proportional price in a 22 oz bottle) can be purchased for the equivalent of $6.87, and this is not so good as to be worth another $1.13/bottle. Its good, but it is not Pliny.

I said shazam, this is one of the most unique IPAs Ive ever had. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a thin white head. The aroma wafts of a true citrusy IPA, the taste is deliciously complex, blending that simcoe and amarillo hop with pure intentions. Enjoy.

32oz growler from Dominion W&B, also a draft goblet at Spacebar. Gold with moderate white head. This is a very good IPA, with a great balance of pine,floral, and citrus hop aromas and flavor. No WC IPA slap in the face, just great taste. Very drinkable.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Pours a clear bright golden color with a fizzy head. I was a little surprised to see how highly rated the IPAs from these guys are, but after trying them, I can see why. This one has an explosion of sweet juicy grapefruit aroma. Very nice hoppy citrus flavor, with a juicy fruit finish. Damn, this stuff is good. Loved it.

Advocate_Ames (506) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Pours an amber color with a thick foam head that dissipates and laces my glass. The aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, grassy, and had a good malt presence. The flavor is of booze, crisp semi sweet malts, it has a medium bitterness that lingers, and some earthy herbal flavor too. Overall a good IPA, glad to have enjoyed it.

a Full 10 or so ounce pour at Rustico - Alexandria. Poured a clear, translucent, still light yellow color with a medium sized, compact white head. Aroma was very nice pine, floral hops and a lot of juicy citrus notes. Flavor had a lot of pine resin, floral notes. I like how it wasnt some overblown double IPA that is hard to drink a lot of because of a strong boozy character. This is very thirst quenching and delicious. I was really impressed at how pleasant this beer was, and how easy it was to drink. That often is a sign of a really, really well crafted beer for me.

Amber. Nose of piney grapefruit and fruity malt. Flavor is a great balance of dry pine, mild grapefruit, and slightly fruity caramel malt. All leaning bitter and mildly dry, yet balanced. A hint of tropical fruit.
