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.

Growler pour. Gold. Sweet citrus aroma. Taste is sweet, light pine, bit of soap. Finishes pleasantly dry with a lasting bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very well balanced IPA. Good mouth feel and nice aroma, bit earthy with a solid citrus/floral backing. Easy to drink, almost too easy, with no alcohol burn.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head. Poor head retention. Aroma of herbal, citrus and tropical hop notes with a bit of a tinny note. The taste is herbal and citrus hops, pale malts and a bit of canned fruit. Medium bodied. Disjointed and minor flaws, but could easily be improved into an excellent beer.
