Pours a cloudy amber color with medium head that dissipates almost to nothing. Pine and grassy hops with hint of toasted malt. Medium bitterness throughout with a medium and acidic finish. Thin to medium palate. small to moderate carbonation and thin, slightly slick palate. I would call this a very average IPA.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with a nice off-white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is malt, hops, and citrus. Low bitterness. On the mild side. Enjoyable.

On tap @ 11th Street Taphouse, Virginia Beach Va-Clear Copper/Amber pour w/a white head. Hop aroma. Very heavy hop bite on the front end, a lot of citrus, pine tar, pitch, pretty one dementional. I didn’t fine any malt lt base in this brew, it was just a one dementional hop bomb to me. Nothing special.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12oz bottle from the brewery with the new "English IPA" label; same beer confirmed with the brewery. Nice clear copper color with a small white head and a little lacing. Strange aroma that honestly reminded me of fresh pumpkin? Flavor was fairly balanced with slight bitterness up front and then some sweeter malt in the finish. Okay.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Poured a very clear deep copper color with a small off-white head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of honey and spices. The flavor was a nice mix of caramel malts and hoppy spices. Medium body with a lasting bitterness.

Velkyal (296) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 pours a rich amber, topped with firm white head. The nose is thick sweet oranges, like marmelade, a hefty dose of spice. Lots of caramel malt sweetness, balancing out the hop bite in the background. Actually quite drinkable. Had on draft at Moto Salon in Charlottesville, wonderfully smooth and moreish pint of IPA, laden with the delights of Fuggles. Quite possibly my favourite IPA in Virginia.

Pours a light amber. Very nice aroma of earthy hops. Smooth taste with some yeast and a good amount of hops. It is nice for the $, especially if you like a more earthy tasting IPA.
