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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a thick ivory head. Aroma is hoppy with a fruity hint. Hoppy flavor is equally woody and resiny, hardly bitter. Texture is smooth, if not thick, and fairly fizzy. Bag one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma is citrus catty hops with a nice caramel malt back end. Taste is nice resinous hops, bittersweet finish, biscuit malt in the middle. Good hop presence with lasting bitterness, medium carbonation, nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This had a sweet, hoppy aroma. Dry taste - resin, fresh grain, and a little salt. It has a nice look to it - a very nice ipa.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nicely citrusy with a nice grapefruit note over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit sweeter than I was hoping for, quite a bit caramel and toasty malt sweetness. The bitterness from the hops is really muted by the sweetness. Some decent light bitterness on the back end, but not quite enough to balance out all the malt. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Meh, not quite up my alley for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Doesn’t quite reach the 8 points in aroma but comes together good nonetheless. Citrusy, with some sour malt. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness and bitterness. I like this. On tap at DC Summerfest.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slight copper golden with a health white head which lingers. Aroma is bread, mild citrus. Taste is sweet malt, slight earthiness, citrus finishes with a bit of graininess.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beer pours a clear golden amber color with a nice rocky head. Grapefruit, melon aroma. Perhaps a bit resiny. Crisp bitter flavor finishes clean. Malty backbone is present, but subtle.
