Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. Nice ruddy amber pour with a thin off white head. Light citrus in the nose with a bit of bread and toast. A touch sweet up front with caramel malt, citrus, and a lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Surprised at the IBUs. I didnít think it was that hopped up.

DCLawyer (1429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft->mini tumbler at Spacebar. Amber with offwhite head. Grassy and citrus hops, some spiciness, over a caramel malt base. Decent, but could be better balanced.

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Aromas are piney, citrusy, flowery, with some toasted bread crust. Clear amber with a lasting white head. Round fruity hops first, off-dry, caramelly, malty middle, sharper hops and mostly clean in the finish, great balance. Medium body, a little spicy, well carbonated.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2014
Tap @ Sedona, Charlottesville. The pourís deep amber with a small head. The nose is somewhat stale. Notes of cardboard, sweet red apple and cherry fruit leather. Similar flavors. more cardboard. Thin and one dimensional. Stale. Sweet toffee malt. Mild bitterness on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, this tastes like it was sitting in a distributorís warehouse for 6 months. :(

10/5/2013. Sampled at VA Hop Fest. Dark amber color with a tan head. Hoppy aromas with citrus, caramel and malt. Caramel flavors with bitter hops almost immediately. Not bad at all.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Sampled at Lost Rhino. Hazy orange with lots of fluffy off white head. Nose has a distinctly home brew-y smell, like lots of old orange peels, some lemon, malt, caramel. Flavor is better, citrus is palatable, orange, lemon, pine, cracker, caramel. Bitter finish tempered with a touch of sweetness. Fix the nose and this is a flagship beer.

BrettTaylor (483) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Re-rating - 9/7/13 - had a sampler then a full pour at the brewery. Lots of citrus hop bitterness, tastes of hop and malt, very hoppy, but well balanced enough to drink easily. This was better than it was in previous tasting and went well with pizza. Poured as a sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. May have been suffering from palate blowout by this beer. Aroma is a mix of IPA and red, but the malt dominates. Very very carbonated as served and was very hoppy.
