Fantastic IPA. Love getting a big west coast flavor from Virginia, this beer has become an IPA staple! DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Pounder can from Whole Foods. Pours turbid dark straw toward copper with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is hops, tropical citrus, perfumy florals. Tastes very hoppy, crisp, resiny, with notes of pineapple, tangerine, and white pepper. Finishes crisp and bitter, with more fruit as it warms. Really nice stuff. pharleg (1) - - APR 15, 2015 does not count
Great hops out of Richmond. Nice caramel color, fruity nose, bite on the tongue that smooths to that grapefruity finish.

Thanks to Deuce for this. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a small frothy white top. Aroma is tropical hops and biscuity malts. Taste is a big blast of bitter tropical hops. Dankness abound and dry biscuit malt. BeerdedDave (1703) - Beckley, USA - NOV 20, 2014

Aroma: The nose is full of resin/pine and grapefruit/citrus hops, with caramel malt undertones
Appearance: This one is a really great looking beer: It pours a murky looking dark orange color with a lasting sheet of frothy beige head that leaves some heavy lacework all over the glass
Flavor: Clean and hoppy taste, much like the nose, a good amount of bitterness, mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, creamy and smooth, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
I thought this was an excellent IPA. It is well-made and very enjoyable. It has plenty of hop bitterness, but isn’t extremely bitter, it is almost more hop flavorful than hop bitter. There’s also just a touch of sweetness to provide some balance. Really well-done. I’m glad I have three more of these.
Nice hoppy aroma, light head. Pours amber colored, cloudy. Nice hoppy flavor, right to the back of the palate. Nice and plush mouth feel. Good aftertaste. A good bber from Hardywood! tsd08460 (1164) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2016

Can. Thanks Blake for sharing. Phil was also present. Medium hazy orange golden with a steady spitty white lace. Nose is big and juicy; lots of grapefruit. Flavor is bitter, piney, lightly herbal, with more grapefruit and a complementary malt backbone. Very well made with no flaws. c_lee_burton (193) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pint Can. Fresh citrus grapefruit nose. Big foamy white head with sticky lacing. Tastes of hops, bread, grapefruit, orange, and some piney tones. Nice balance of carbonation with creaminess. Grapefruit is prominent, but it is balanced with malts and comes back at the end to linger in your mouth. Great IPA!
