3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery’s tasting room. Bright and full of amber-orange color and well topped with a creamy head. This drinks with all the characteristics you’d expect of a dry-hopped IPA, rolling with some good citric flavors, finishing clean and dry. Well done. (#4817, 11/10/2012)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Abbey Road in Virginia Beach, VA.
Lightly hazy, amber gold with an off-white head and excellent lacing.
Fairly mild aroma with orange, tropical fruit, spruce and caramel.
Taste of citrus, pine, tropical fruit and caramel, all blended well together-- I.e., nothing stands out, but it's all there in a fine balance.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
A decent IPA, but not a standout.

pours an amber gold with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and bitter piney hops, taste follows. A bit too much malt for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can The IPA poured with a super huge head that filled the glass. There was nice lacing down the glass into the cloudy amber ale. You are greeted with floral aroma of the dry hopping with pine and spruce. The IPA had a medium body with above average carbonation. This is an easy drinking ale that has much to please to hoppy ale lover. Well timed bitterness sweeps the taste buds, concluding the swallow with a clean dry finish. It would add to the desription of the ale if the brewery listed how long was the dry hopping process on the fermented ale.

Tastes really big. I don’t what it is but it reminds me of a double ipa. Lots of pine and ripe tropical fruit. Sweet malty backbone. Really bitter but balanced. Another great beer from Norfolk!

Nice basic IPA. Little heavy without a real interesting feature for my tastes. Unfiltered.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Poured from a tap. Well-poured so minimal head but outstanding lacing. Dark golden and just a bit cloudy. Not much of a nose but great taste, crisp grapefruit and just the right amount of bitter. Good choice for #400!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft malt on the nose with a faint touch of hops. Medium bodied, big and toasty. Gentle bitterness comes through pretty nicely on the finish. Very short transition from body to finish. Easy drinking, lots of earthy bitterness on the back end. Tasty enough.
