Draft. A fresh, piney-orangey, well-hopped IPA. Fairly crisp on the first sip and successively more complex, well-malted and dry on the finish. Just a quality beer that stays in its lane, doing the things well it is supposed to do well. Good stuff.

Murky orange brown. White head. Strong hop aroma. Bitter and citrusy, but a bit too malty imbalanced.

On tap at The Bungalow Billiards and Brew in Chantilly, VA, where it was served much too cold.
A beautiful looking beer! Hazy, amber with a large, fine near white head and fantastic lacing.
Aroma of pine, orangey citrus, herbal hops and a little biscuit malt.
Taste of pine, citrus, caramel and herbal hops.
Medium body and high/medium carbonization.
It took me a while to warm up to this hop forward IPA. Or rather, it needed to warm up to show its best side. It's light on the malt at any temperature, but completely unbalanced when served ice cold.

Thanks Grant. Hard to rate in a Phish lot, so perhaps this is a bit inflated. Nose of orange candy, heavy sweet malt. Taste is bitter orange and cirtus, with equals parts sweet caramel malts. Pretty nice.

A descent IPA with piney flavor, lacks the malt balance that I look for. An OK beer. Could pound a few on a summer day.

Draft - Hop forward on this beer. Taste lingers on the pallet. Bunches of hops that sticks around for a while. Not a complex beer but still pretty good for an IPA.

12 oz can from Total Wine and More The IPA poured a cloudy amber with frothy head and lacing. The light aroma of citrus but not much. This sia pleasant ale but not a challenging IPA. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This IPA has more of a citrus taste but rather mild. There is a bitterness that fills your mouth. The dry finish is smooth and leaves you with some lingering bitter hops .

This beer is a clear pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and citrus. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrus, hops and grainy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruity hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

A bit too malt forward with chalky flavors of dough and white cake. Hop notes were a bit muted with some herbal and floral hints. A mild bitterness followed. Not necessarily a bad beer, but definitely an underwhelming IPA.

Well, I like Lost Rhino, and I love the label of the dude biting it on his bike. But the beer was simply not all that. Medium amber, good head. Caramel accented aroma with a hint of earthy and piney hops. Flavor was a match. Much more malty than hoppy. Almost like an English Pale Ale. Not a bad beer at all, but left me sort of cold. Can pour at VA Beach. Should note that I had no clue that this would be a "milestone" brew at 3200
