On tap at the Cellar in Blacksburg twice in last month. Solid American style IPA on the dry and low alcohol side of the street. A nice sessionable IPA in the piney-dryer style. I like this one quite a bit.

12 oz. can courtesy of AdamT. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, mangoes, and caramel. Very nice citrus and grassy hop taste with a strong malt backbone to balance. Bitterness is somewhat lingering but certainly not unpleasant. A nice surprise.

Can: nice buttery grapefruit nose. Amber in color. Taste resembles the nose. I like the hops and the buttery taste. It is unique. Worth seeking out.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Buttercream icing, pineapple, caramel nose. Cloudy amber, wisps if very fine particulate, thick yellow sticky head. Honeycomb, grapefruit flavor. Mediym body, alcohol noticeable. Awfully buttery in a fairly pleasant way, but I don’t it was intended. Nice combination of hops, albeit a bit muddled. Respectable.

12oz can from brewery courtesy of mom, thanks mom. Orange hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Strong citrus, light fruit, lemon, malt, cake batter. Light bitter citrus and funk up front with a short bland citrus finish. As it warmed the finish became more malty, which was pretty good. Oily texture, flat carbonation.

Pours a clear golden orange from the can with minimal ring of off-white head. Aroma is nice west coast hops with a hint of pale malt. Taste follows, kind of a creamy oat mouth. Light carbonation, well balanced. Solid beer.

Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Red dark amber color, aroma of lemon. Grapefruit, pinesol, lemon taste. A bit too hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Trooper’s Alley IPA pours a medium copper with a small head of white bubbles that leaves a nice lace. Nose is spruce hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is crisp hop happiness with a nice tantalizing orange zest kiss. Body is fizzy but not overpoweringly so.
