3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mountain State. Classic East Coast/English IPA. Unfiltered copper orange. Creamy off-white head. Balance between the crystal malts and classic hops. Ringwood barky English yeast tones. Leans into the toffee caramel. OK, standard, inoffensive.

Charleston bottle. First WV tick and celebrating #37. Nice brown, amber pour with lots of carbonation pushing a foamy off-white head. Nice lemony citrus aroma with some sweet hay notes. Flavor is a little thin. Bitterness but maybe lacking a little malt backbone. Good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel, biscuits, pine, and fruit in the aroma. Flavor start bitter, with pine and some fruit. Mild finish, with some bitterness and a little fruit sweetness. Fairly standard IPA, but pretty good nonetheless.

Pour is dark amber with a lite white head. Aroma like all other parts of this beer is very hoppy and bone dry if that’s your thing this is your beer. I very much like this beer and think it will pair well with food. The finsh is bitter but not over the top.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in the Laurel Lounge in Canaan Valley Resort in Canaan Valley State Park, WV.
Clear, chestnut color with an off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma of bread, citrus, caramel, pine and floral hops.
Taste of caramel, floral hops, citrus and bread. The hops and malts do not seem to balance each other well. Instead of a balance and interplay, we get a sequence. The flavor starts sweet and finishes with a harsh bitterness.
Medium body and medium/low carbonization.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beer with less of a hoppy note, but after visiting the brewery and meeting the crew we learned that they strive to not be too out there and bring the beer back to what it was meant to be. A heartier and more tingling IPA.

Bottle from Frederick Wine House: pours brown with almost no head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. There’s a bit of pine on the nose. There’s also a bit of the pine cone on the tongue as well but it fades pretty quickly. In trying for a hoppy taste and a clean finish, it just feels a bit boring.
