Tap @ Cask Cafe. Dark golden with ample foamy head and decent lacing. I get earth, rubber, pineapple, and white pepper- but all light. Grainy then bitter. A tad watery, nice bitter finish.

From the tap came a golden brew with a light white head. Butter, citrus aroma. Up front sweet malt flavor with a hop after taste that keeps getting up. Med bodied.

Clear yellow pour with a slight white head. Hoppy nose, floral. Big herbal hop onion taste. Big bitter finish.

Can. Lighter orange pour with a small white head. Tired hops - some citrus, but caramel malt is dominating. Hint of lemon and cardboard. Hmm.

Thanks Grant. I felt like this IPA had some promise but it seemed a bit old. I rated accordingly. Grapefruit and a touch of pine in the hops with some bready caramel malts.

Pours a very clear amber with little carbonation and average head and lace. Tangerines and mild malt on the aroma. The flavor starts out with the hops, then gets dry and crisp, and the malt on the finish is slightly sweet. I liked this.

12 oz. can from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of roses, tangerine, and grapefruit rind. Moderate citrus hop bitterness with notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and wet grass. Bitterness lingers on the palate. Nicely done!

JStax (2955) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2014
About a 3 week old 12 ounce can given to me by Drake. Thanks! Pours a clear copper with a big white head of foam. The aroma is bitter pine and resin. The taste is aggressively bitter and really dries out about midway through the swallow. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Nice citrus pine scent. Pours an orange gold with medium lacing. Has a bitter citrus pine taste, with a nice dry finish. I like this! Cheers to VA beers!

A hop heavy IPA that drowns out the rest of the beer with the herbs. Pours amber with OK head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Thanks to drake.
