3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: This one has a floral hop nose with some pine and citrus notes as well
Appearance: It has a gold colored pour with a lasting white head and coating white lace
Flavor: Component-wise, the flavor is much like the nose, it is light sweet and medium-plus bitter
Palate: This one has a light-medium body, with a little dryness, and a crisp, clean finish
Overall, this is a pretty classic, and fairly well-made example of an IPA. Quite solid and enjoyable. It is not a top-of-style IPA, but this is still a very solid one.

This seems like a good entry level IPA. Medium bodied, good hops character. First beer I’ve tried from Virginia.

light golden watery and refreshing looking brew. vibrant citrus fruit and fruity flavor with fading head. a bit of pepper and oil can in there. some farina malt for added dimension that also reflects some sugar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from RABinVA. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a one finger white head. Good head retention with an incredible amount of lace and foam. Coats the glass. Citrus and grassy hop aroma with a semi sweet background. Flavor is sweet up front with earthy hops mid palate. Well balanced. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. Not much differant than a hundred other well done IPAs, but enjoyable none the less.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12ozpoured into a pint glass. Pours a clear orange-golden color. Aromas of piny hops also get some citrus. Bitterness apparent. Hop favors are accented in this beer. Not as much malt balance as I like. Easy to drink. Mouthfeel a little light for my taste. A decent IPA
