Sampled at brewery. This is one that the locals seem to really like. Amber color. Perfume, peach, a hint of pine and earth. Fresh. Has some dank character. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2016

At Capital Brew fest.
This was poured into a mini snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a decent transparency about it. There’s a nice lacing sliding right on into the beer.
The smell had a nice citrus to piney blend of bitterness just rolling super nicely into a nice cleansing sweet maltiness ( English? , didn’t they just make an English IPA that I just had today? That’s okay, still good for the most part).
The taste was mainly sweet through the citrus hops and then allows a really nice sweet maltiness to invade but not distract, combines very nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing. I say this was good for its style.
Overall, if anything, this AIPA balanced well, perhaps not as sharp as a fair amount of normal AIPA’s, but hey I’d have it again. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014

Clear golden color with lasting white head. Awesome fucking fresh ganja smoke aromas. Medium body with average co2. Nice spicy, floral hop flavors with some pale malt sweetness____good SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 15, 2014
