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

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Floral nose, some grapefruit, a little butter, some caramel notes. Pours golden with a thin head. Up front the flavor is a little muted there is some bread and caramel with light hoppy notes, but the finish is where the niceness picks up. Dry weedy and herbal in the finish it lingers for a little while and is the best part of the beer. Body is a a little thin.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Draft. Pours gold in color with a foamy white head. Citrus, a little ripe fruit, and a touch of malt in the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Malt, citrus, light floral notes, and fruit sweetness on the palate. Medium finish. A pretty good IPA and what I consider one of their best beers.

beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2009
Hops on the nose. Light to slightly medium bodied. Hops on the front of the palate but when it starts to leave it gets the hell out of there with not much aftertaste which is why I have to hit it a bit. It’s trying but when you are trying to do what west coast ipas are doing you had better know your stuff.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2009
Clear pale gold. Light citric hop aroma. Flavor was clean malts, a touch of biscuit, and a citric, grapefruit hop finish. Tight and clean, nicely done. The fact that my wife ordered a pint of this as opposed to the wit is indicative of just how well done this was. Her favorite beer of the trip, and my favorite at the brewery as well.

(Sample Date: 1/17/2009 Source:Devils Backbone) Sampler at the brewery. Nice citrus/floral hop nose. Clear light golden with small white head. Low fruitiness, clean spicy hop flavor with good balance of caramel malt sweetness. Spicy bitter finish. Very good.

Braudog (5598) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Took a growler of this to go -- a bright golden beer with an average head. This has a shiny citrusy hoppiness as its predominate feature. Straight down the pipe American IPA. (#3503, 2/11/2009) <<Re-rated from a bottle, June 2012 ... comments hold true; piney hoppiness a little more predominate than the citrus finish. Upgraded slightly.>>

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2009
golden and pale with a mild white head. some hop to the nose. slight malt character, a lot of hop bitteness without much in regard to hop flavor. an overly bitter version that needs greater depth to the hop flavor or malt. below average example
