COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rule G is the railroad industry’s policy against drinking on the job. With tracks running right into the brewery, we spite Rule G daily. Unfiltered and outrageously dry-hopped, this beer has a big hop nose and a dry clean finish that accentuates its citrus and grapefruit undertones. It is a bold beer that can stand up to bold flavors.

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)

obguthr (5480) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Can: Pencil shavings, grass clippings aroma. Cloudy amber, medium yellow head. Strongly grassy, lesser lemon zest and honey. Medium to full body, easy carbonation, bitter. Drinks a little bigger than it is and is quite enjoyable. Doesn’t seem fresh, but the can date is good.

jgb9348 (5552) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2016
Nice clear light copper and golden coloured body with a very thin off-white head - only a centimetre tall. Aroma of fresh grassy and herbal hops with a bit of tropical fruits, some sweet smells noticeable as well and a touch of grain, perhaps rye. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive rye flavour at first with a large tropical fruit flavour and some very light hop notes coupled with a touch of citrus. Aftertaste is fairly fresh with some grass, herbs, tropical fruits and a little touch of malt as well. Overall, a good smelling IPA, and the flavour is nearly there, but not complex enough nor showing enough depth of flavours - just the front layers show through. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes, Virginia on 02-April-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-April-2016.

badwhale (419) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Can to shaker glass. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with white head. Good lacing. Hop nose, but not too powerful. Good body and crisp finish of hop citrus, but just a little one dimensional

jbruner (3849) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2015 Pours a clear golden orange on tap with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of resinous grassy and citrus hops, hint of pale malts. Taste is even hoppier, almost to the point of astringency, but just shy. Solid IPA.

TySpurs90 (3) - - JUN 19, 2015 does not count
A weak IPA with no hops and abounding in citrus flavor with a strange body. Some weird floral notes exude out of the beers. Not an expected experience from an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the hotel bar is a nice surprise. Pours golden, translucent, white head that leaves big lacing trail. Pine and citrus, moderate bitterness. A decent solid IPA.
