4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just awesome, and totally unexpected from this new Virginia brewer. I expected east coast hoppy beer (earthy and more brittish in style) but found it pleasantly californian (citrus, bright, floral). I’d drink this all the time if I lived in Harrisonburg.

amber color; caramel, sweet aroma with floral hop notes; lots of caramel malt flavor; semi-sweet malt base with floral hop note, but not nearly as bitter as I would expect from an IPA

From the bottle poured a brownish brew with a white head. Aromas and flavors of malt and hops and some funny unidentifiable flavors.

Copper color and a piney grassy aroma. Bright white head that dissipates rather quickly. Piney bitter flavor from the hops is there with a bit of lemon flavor in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours clear and dark amber with a small, wispy, white head. Aromatic standouts are marmalade and fruitcake. Medium-bodied with expired carbonation. The flavor is a well-balanced marriage of caramel-like malts and tannic grapefruit bitterness. Finishes raspy and dry. Bottle courtesy of one very generous ygtbsm94!

A descent, easy drinking IPA. I did’t write down tasting notes, just an overall score.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to RussianDragon for the bottle.
The beer is clear and light golden with an inch of white head. Aromas include tangerine, bread dough, light pine. Refreshing and tasty. Citrus character comes through, balanced by a sourdough, yeast character. A hint of melon, finishing with a gentle bitterness. Alcohol masked quite well. A solid brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass, no release date.
Aroma: citrus, pine, resin
Appearance: clear, deep amber with large white head and medium lacing.
Taste: citrus, grapefruit, pine, bread.
Palate: just the right amount of "thick", medium carbonation with a good medium, hoppy finish.
Overall: Nothing remarkable, but not a bad IPA.

Sampled at Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg VA 7.18.14. Pours a clear amber/copper color with white head that settled quickly. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops, and light malt. The aroma is the best thing about this beer - flavor was solid IPA with a bitter grassy finish. Worth trying.
