Drank a draft at Old Dominion Brewhouse. Poured way too cold. Great citrusy, hoppy aroma. Half inch thick foam. Great IPA. One of the better ones I’ve had.

Had this on draft in Norfolk, and it’s super good. Massive just massive amounts of pine and citrus. Like drinking fresh grapefruit juice. As it warms up, the citrus turns into a candied fruit, tropical juice taste. Really surprised by this, I’m glad I tried it!

bkurtz (877) - PERU - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle - Pours a clear amber/orange with a fairly big, creamy head and some lacing. Aromas of pine, then citrus, mostly orange. Juicy beer with the aromas continuing through the taste, some sweetness ending with a bitter finish. Good IPA.

AWISLguy (1468) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Orangey pour with an off-white head leaving a lot of nice lace. Aroma has big juicy fruity hops, with a solid tangy pine component. Taste is of sweet fruits, tangy pine and some grapefruit, with a toffee backend. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes nicely bittersweet with a touch more bitter - very hoppy - and quite dry. A solid hoppy effort. Will be interested to see what the DIPA brings. 14.4

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of caramel malt, pine, and some grapefruit. Sweet malt flavor with some pine and citrus. Medium body with average carbonation. Too malty for an IPA for me.

Rock solid American IPA, definitely in the top tier of mid-Atlantic IPA’s without question. Pours an unfiltered copper/amber with a rocky off-white head. Beautiful proper IPA aroma that actually jumps out at you: tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit and orange peel. The flavor matches the aroma notes along with a solid malt backbone and a tinge of caramel but thankfully not too much. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Great example of an American IPA. Put a fresh bottle of this beer up against other IPA’s and you’ll be surprised how much it will dominate other offerings in the hop vibrancy department. A definite go-to IPA.

CelticBrew (882) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Poured 12 oz bottle an amber color with a small, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Aroma of hops, crystal malt, pine, citrus, light grapefruit, slight earth and wet field grass. Flavour of fresh bitter citrus and earthy pine needles round with just a touch a underlying toasted malt. Surprisingly good IPA beer. Discovered while visiting the In-Laws in Baltimore.

zizzybalubba (1525) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit rind, and wet grass. Great citrus forward bitter hop taste but with an assertive malt backbone to help balance the flavor. Moderate lingering bitterness on the palate. Nicely done.

Palidor19 (3007) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2014
This beer lacks the proper theme to what make a good ipa. It's clean and highly fizzy, but lacks the proper malt and the carbonation makes the hops to potent without a distinct flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask gravity @ GBBF 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity peachy hoppy citrus aroma. Fruity malty hoppy peachy flavor. Has a fruity malty peachy hoppy finish.

Starts with a noticably up-front aroma with a strong grapefruit note. Taste comes in waves with this one. First you get a strong vegatable hop over the malt, but almost immediately an oily deep bitterness takes over, and sticks around. The tast lingers here. This is not a shy beer, and the background malt covers for the substantial bitterness and aroma that the beer comes with. Maybe a bit too high on the hop alphas, but a solid IPA.
