Star Date 2012.156 Brewer’s Log - We intercepted the following alien transmission: My Imaginary Girlfriend is brewed with all the HOPS and fermented in your Mom’s basement. Hop additions were determined by the skill of a 4th Level Mage and the flick of his 8-sided polyhedral die. Best enjoyed before or after your favorite role-playing game.

Drank it at the brewery from the tap. Lots of hops, but definitely going towards the floral end of the hops spectrum, so doesn’t have the overwhelming bitterness of most American IPAs. From someone who usually goes for European style beers, this was a nice refreshing craft brew.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012
Location: Cask at Rustico Restaurant - Alexandria, 5/27/12

Aroma: The nose was pretty hoppy, with grapefruit and other citrus leading the way
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color, with a typical looking small cask-pour head
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet up-front leading into a medium citrus hop
Palate: This one had a light-medium body, a smooth feel, and a lightly dry finish to it
Overall Impression: I thought that this one was a solid citrus/grapefruit IPA. Those fruity hops are really the predominant feature of this beer. Overall, I thought that that this beer worked well on cask. The flavors came through nicely.

Tap. Pours hazy gold with average, fizzy white head; decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is heavy grassy and floral hops, lemon and other citrus, bread malt, and light pine. Flavor is balanced malt and hops (light bitterness) with supporting citrus esters; dry finish. Not as hoppy as I expected given the nose. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours cloudy and yellow. Unfiltered IPA? Sign me up. The nose has light tropical notes. The flavor reminded me of Two Hearted with less sweetness and more aggressive hops. Sort of a mix of tropical fruit, pine, and a very light touch of grain. Long bitter finish. Certainly nice enough to get a growler of!
