Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. May have been suffering from palate blowout. Pine and orange notes in the aroma. More complex than I first expected, but definitely balanced towards hop/bitterness. Aromas were very reminiscent, but more pleasant in my mind, than Heady Topper.

Foxbush (1504) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Draft at Savory Grain This was an excellent pale ale with a complex aroma and flavor. There is a resin like taste of pine and citrus. The ale poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head with some lacing. The ale has medium body with soft carbonation. The ale finishes with a bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This was fun, I hope to have more.
