COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale bronze beer is medium in body with intense hop flavor and aroma. Our IPA is brewed in the style of the “west coast” with robust hop character coming from American grown varieties of hops. IPA’s are amongst the most popular craft brewed beers as they have moderate strength and tons of flavor. This is not your Grandfathers beer! 5.9% alcohol by volume, 60 IBUs

Pours a fair copper with a fair white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, citrus and pine. Great IPA flavor, only slightly watered down. Nice aftertaste.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Draft at Ironwood. Pours orange with a thin white head. Slight pine sol note on the nose. There’s some bitterness in the finish. There’s more floral piney notes on the tongue. Flavorful but imbalanced.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($6): Pours a light copper colour with a white head. Aroma is piny hops with a sufficient malt backing. Taste is somewhat bitter. Although this is west coast in character, it is hardly what I would call "west coast" in terms of intensity. It is perfectly drinkable and thankfully, it is not too bitter, so it is rather refreshing. In either case, this is a forgettable IPA.

crossovert (7202) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
To me this one is just a standard east coast ipa. Nothing at all stood out to me. Medium to low hoppiness, bland malt bill. Others liked it though.

Lemon zest and lillies on the nose. Crystal clear amber, medium head, nice lace. Overripe orange and marigold flavor. Quite bitter, a little hot. Good combination of citrus and floral hops.

Sevenlee (1294) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2012
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with floral hops and pine along with citrus notes. Taste is also hoppy, with some citrus, other fruits and earthy tones coming through leading to a dry bitter finish. Pretty good although maybe a little too dry and bitey for my taste.

TheGB (505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours yellow with a dense 1/2" head. Nice aroma of aromatic malt, grassy hops. Nice smooth palate, good amount of hops without being overly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tulip snifter from bottle. A: very aromatic, smells of simcoe and a couple other hops, but has an awkward hint of cat dung, in complete seriousness. App: brought golden color, frothy white head the distresses in a lengthy process. T: very top hopped, no real complexity, simple to the point hopping, not too light but far from overwhelming in a bad way. Not nearly the ipa one may expect from an american ipa. P: very nice , bubbly yet smooth, lengthy after taste of sweetend hops.

Bottle. Appearance: very clear gold with 1 finger sudsy white head. Aroma: very grassy slightly piney and floral; has a kind of "off" smell to me but may just be all the hop aromas coming together in a strange way. Taste: starts with big floral hop notes thru the middle with sweet sugary maltiness throughout ending with a sharp grapefruity hoppy bitterness, long string lingering grapefruit citrus peel aftertaste. Mouthfeel: thin to medium, slick body, dryish aftertaste. Overall: the aroma was really throwing me off but the taste really came through. Pretty complex going through quite a few hop characteristics throughout the taste. Very excited about this relatively new local (VA) microbrewery getting there bottles out there. Pretty solid IPA and definitely worthy of future purchases for local support. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Lemony citric and floral aroma. The flavor has citric hops, some fruity sweetness, light floral notes, and a nice lingering bitterness. Good stuff.
