COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One for the hopheads. Huge hop presence in this beer makes it highly assertive and not for the faint at heart! Easily the premier IPA in Southwestern Virginia!

very little aroma, not overpowering, citrus (orange) finish just a little. Med length finish, med head, med lacing. This wasn’t very impressive - I think their pale ale is better.

hazy gold, thin white ring of large bubbles, oily top. Nose is dusty and dirty, dog and light pine. Flavor blasts front with sweetness, then some orange and burnt sugar mid with orange and dough finish. Incredibly burnt and sticky.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. The beer is radiant golden with a small white head. The aroma brings pine and hops with a hint of citrus. Smells nice. The flavor brings some tangy citrus, finishing with a bitter hop kick. Light to medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Good stuff.
