Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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)

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Draft at Oceans and Ale in Williamsburgh. A nice golden orange that has some haziness. A creamy orange hued foam. Only a little nose but it seems to be citrus. Pine flavors with caramel first. Citrus fruit after that. Grapefruit bitterness. This seems fresh. A hint of cinnamon spice. Midglass I begin to taste tropical fruit. This is well done..

I’m a local. This beer is fantastic coming out of Norfolk VA. Nice dry, citrus hops. Similar to many California IPA s. Its very drinkable. Enjoy. Cheers!

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Citrus aroma with grapefruit and citrus rind. Cloudy caramel colour with a creamy well laced head. A pleasant taste slightly bitter with an oily citrus rind palate.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Growler fill from Aw Shucks. Poured a medium orange, slight haze, slight but lasting head. Big pine and grapefruit hop aroma, with a resinous note. Biscuity body is enough to hold up against a huge hop finish, loads of pine, grapefruit, and tangerine citrus. Lingering bitterness. An aggressive IPA - I liked this - and I have high hopes for this brewery.

Draft at GABF. Pours cloudy yellow with white head. Nose and taste of hops, pineapple, light caramel malt and citrus. Medium body.

Tap. Deep golden. Big citrus hops, particularly grapefruit. Very excellent IPA.

Radek Kliber (6390) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Where and how: taster @ brewery
Aroma refreshing, crisp, hoppy nose. Aromatic play but all in bolder balance. Nice west coast feel. Grapefruit. Citrus with sweet malts. Gentle hint of vanilla.
Appearance:3-
Top: lighter white crown, sparse lace.
Base: amber gold.
Palate : milder carbonation, medium bodied.
Taste: lemon grass, soft citrus, tartness with sweet filling malts. Herbal, citrus feel was more dominant than rough green bitterness. Nice.

mike5326 (875) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Poured from tap. Light orange color, light white head. Floral hops smell, citrus undertones. Not overly hop, great beer, citrus, floral and grapefruit flavors.

Dr_Fellini (392) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is light citrusy floral resin hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a mild caramel malt background. Light to medium in body with a lingering flavorless bitterness. Okay, but nothing special.
