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

Nice slightly hazy copper coloured body with a nice thick, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pungent and grassy hops with a grapefruit and distinct resiny smell, tucked in with some nice malt and a good bit of discernible alcohol notes. Medium-bodied; Assertive piney and floral hop notes at first with a resiny finish all with a good malt backbone and a very grassy/floral finish. Aftertaste is a bit more well-rounded with the malt coming through a bit more, some alcohol notes as well and a little barnyardie funk as well. Overall, a very well done IPA - not perfect, but a very good beer and a nice offering from Virginia - very nice to have it here in the state. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$9.99/6pack, sampled at home in Washington on 17-July-2012.

Drank at Brew at the Zoo 2012. Very solid IPA, especially for 5.9%, nice amount of bitterness, nearly a little more would have made it great.

12oz bottle pours a bright orange with some clumpy white head. Nose is mild, citrus, pine, honey. Flavor is better, citrus, pine, honey, flowers. Medium bodied, dry, lightly chalky finish. Good.

355mL. Clear orange pour with low carbonation and decently rocky, off-white head. Mega floral hoppy nose. Taste is rich honey, caramel, toffee, mega Brazil nut bitterness. Really nice stuff. Wow. No astringency. Soft delicious palate. Very impressive. Will be picking up another sixer of this.

Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin. Golden orange appearance with an off white head. Somewhat spicy, herbal, grassy, light lemon aroma. Herbal, grassy, a bit minty, lemon citrusy, light grapefruity hoppy, earthy, fairly fun beer.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, pour is orange with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, bread, some grass, pine, hints of grapefruit, orange but some slight biscuit as well, mainly grass. Taste is some sweet biscuit, grass and pine, hints of orange peel, lemon, touch of caramel, finishing fairly bitter but a touch of sweetness. Eh.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours clear gold with a substantial off-white head. Fresh piney citrus hop aroma. The flavor balance is bitter but with a good malt underneath. I’ll have another.

Spruce aroma and hop flavor. Very well "balanced" ipa. Palate leaves you wanting another and another and another.

Clear amber appearance with an average size white head and good lacing. Spicy, resinous hop aroma paired with bready malts. Taste is more hop focused, with pine and citrus characteristics, but a bit lower on the IBU scale. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Nicely rounded flavors and a relatively modest abv could make this a good session beer.
