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

This one poured a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy and grassy hops with light caramel in the background. Flavor was similar, a bit more malty than I was expecting from the aroma. OK.

Solid hop aroma and flavor. Maltiness matched to hop flavor. Even sweet/dry balance. A smooth IPA.

What a great IPA. Pours a light Amber or a dark yellow. Delicious hoppy flavor with a sharp aftertaste.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours an even gold color with a decent fluffy head that fades just a little too quick. Aroma is citrus, malt, grass and floral and all of those are big. Flavor is big citrus but also with a very big dose of malt as well, then there is a nice rush of clean grass/fruit skin that lingers into the aftertaste. Palate is weirdly light but at the same time chewy, weirdest part of this beer. Overall this is a very nice West Coast style IPA from Virginia that hits the all the right spots except for the palate.

Draft. Pours clear amber. Tastes like medium hops and grapefruit. Smells like floral hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops with a good amount of pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same with a nice hoppy bitterness on the finish. Average texture. A good IPA.

Sorry to continue my rant on fresh hops, but I fear that many IPA’s I am rating are being slighted by a lack of freshness. This also may be a cause for bias towards local hoppier beers. Could this beer have been better if I drank straight from the source, maybe. Poured a hazy orange. Pine and grass strong on the nose. Has citrus flavors, but not the gut punch found in the best IPA’s. Will try and buy next time I am in VA to see if freshness was a factor. Bottle - Trade from RABinVA

On Tap at DC. Pours orange with long lasting white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, passion fruit, orange marmalade and biscuit malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy hops dominate the palate; with tropical fruit and biscuit malt provide some balance. Finish is long and very hoppy. Nice IPA.

Solid IPA. A nice session brew. Impressed this far with Devils Backbone brewery. Definitely one I'd drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I liken this beer to the white water IPA from Boston beer co. Not as bitter maybe stronger bodied. I am biased as these are both favorites in my household. They are bitter beers with a depth of flavors at the same time they manage to be refreshing and clean.
