So we made a mistake and we got a bigger IPA. This thing is big, and it’s in charge. Time to bring aboard “The Admiral”.

Particularly floral hops with citrus and pine. The overall impression is sweet and a bit one dimensional. The hops are good but not optimally utilized or balanced. Enjoyable but not elite.

Foxbush (1403) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 Draft at American Taproom The IPA poured a hazy amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma was dominated by grapefruit, and pine. This is complex ale from a very new brewery. I was at the brewery on Saturday and they were sold out. I had to come back to Richmond to get a pint. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The taste was of grapefruit, orange peel and pine resin. Th finish was clean with bitter grapefruit and tropical fruit. This was enjoyed at Buz and Ned’s. It is an excellent ale.

MadRobin (2223) - Silver Spring, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at The Brick at Black Bear Bistro in Warrenton, VA. Clear, medium dark amber with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, mango, caramel and bready malt. Taste of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit, bread and caramel. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. This beer was served extremely cold and it took a while for the fruit aromas and flavor to develop. At first it just tasted pungent and unpleasant. Five minutes improved everything immensely. This beer straddles the line between a standard IPA and an imperial. In either case, it is a full-flavored, well-balanced IPA with plenty of hop intensity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (4313) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Cat urine and marigold nose, moderately strong. Clear amber, medium cream colored head with good lacing. Sweet malt and cat pee. I’m guessing there must be Simcoe in this IPA, but I’ve been wrong before. Lillies noticeable. Medium body and smooth. Good example of an "East Coast" IPA
