On tap. Deep amber brew with tan head, darker than many IPA’s. Moderate aroma of earth, spice and a little citrus. Taste is nicely balance malt and hoops - modest malt with a hop forward citrus / spice at the start of the swallow, maltiness emerges towards the middle of the swallow and then is balanced with a very pleasant earth / spice finish.

Tallboy can into a snifter.
3.0 A: Murky copper plum color. Not quite one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average, especially for the style and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Mix of a few different hop components - pine and grapefruit, nondeScript spiciness, orange with a touch of lemon zest, and floral. Mild bready yeastiness with honey and caramel notes. Despite the complexity, it’s not as vibrant as I’d like.
3.5 T: Moderate bitterness. The bready yeastiness is pretty strong and distracting at times. Caramel and a slight toastiness. The hops are primarily piney with grapefruit. The other components listed in the smell are there as well, but all pretty subdued.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but it is rather chewy due to the yeastiness.
3.5 D: It’s not bad, but I prefer cleaner, less yeasty IPAs as a general rule.

Not much nose. Very nice mouth feel. This beer almost has a toasted malt flavor. It is a great example of balance between malt and hops. It is a very good beer. Foxbush (2029) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Draft at Beer Works in Charleston, SC The IPA poured a hazy amber with an off white head and lacing. the aroma of grapefruit rind greets you. The taste was fuller with spice, orange rind and malts. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The finish was smooth with some dryness and lacking bitterness of the hops.
