3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. clear light copper pour with a big off white head that seem to last a long time. Caramel, soda, hey, floral, pine. Light to medium body with relatively strong carbonation and bitter but smooth finish. A bit too bitter considering the body and aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent pale ale from Virginia (probably a small town) that has a good backbone and represents a decent pale ale without any kicker or defining hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuty aroma, with some hop notes. Pours a clear amber with a moderate white head. Caramel notes, with hop bitterness running past them. The bitterness lingers for a while, with some pine notes. Just a touch too hoppy to be balanced, but just barely out of balance. Very drinkable, and a decent APA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, courtesy of nimbleprop. Golden pour with two fingers of creamy off-white head. Really nice aroma, albeit a bit mild. Fresh citrus, light herbals, floral, and caramel. Sort a soft and wet mouthfeel, flavors of light florals and herbal hops. Citrus seems to have fallen off. Bready malt base and a mild spicy hop finish. I feel like there is a bit more going on here than I’m really picking up… maybe I’m reading more into this than I should. Enjoyable. I could see this being a local staple.

Love this beer. Tons of hop flavor without being overwhelming. This is the quintessential Virginia Pale Ale.
