This is one hopped up beer. We use six different types of hops and our unique “hopburst” process to make this tasty IPA. Broken Knuckle has a wonderful hop aroma and flavor, subdued malt with balanced bitterness, with a stunning copper color.

Despite the IBUs it does not come across as highly hopped, more like an nicely hopped ESB with plenty of malt backbone deep golden with a nice head

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The beer is a clear orange amber color with some red tint. The head is small and white. The flavor is a mellow hop flavor that is very refreshing. A real good IPA.

on tap @ Railhouse Brewing / Roanoke VA --- Clear dark amber color, white head cover, stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is able to hold on against floral hops. Both move easily to a smooth medium-length finish. A decent conventional brew.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Draft at the brewery This is an English style IPA. The IPA poured a cloudy light amber color. The hop bitterness is deceptive. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. There was lingering bitterness at the finish. This was the best of the beers, bu they ran out and I could not fill a growler.

Transfer from BA review on 10-20-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep amber-orange color with a one finger white head that fades relatively fast to leave a persistent film and a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is mainly a mix of sweet tangerine and grapefruit hop. Mixed with these aromas are some notes of an earthy hop aroma as well as some caramel smell. Taste – A slightly sweeter bready flavor meets the tongue with a very light pine taste present as well. Quickly some flavors of a more citrus nature enter the taste. At the forefront they are more tangerine in nature, but as the taste advances more grapefruit hop enters the taste. In the end a rather satisfying blend of sweet, bread and hop are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the just above side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Rather nice for the hoppy flavors but yet still very drinkable and refreshing with the moderate level of carbonation. Overall –A rather easy drinking and yet tasty brew with a good balance between bready, sweet and hop.

Bomber from Kroger. Pours medium amber with a small off-white head. Smells of grapefruit, apricot, pine, and light malt. First sip: honey, grapefruit, and leaves. Second sip: more of the same with the addition of a gluey malt. This is interesting.

Firefest 2013, Forest VA, Draft: Rosehip, orange, lilly, and grapefruit nose. Clear amber, medium head. Strong lily flavor ringed with tangerine accents. Somewhat medicinal. Nice dry hopping, but a bit phenolic.
