Growler thanks to family and friends. I'm actually not 100% sure how this made it to my fridge but it was a pleasant surprise after a long week.
Brown/golden color with a lumpy white head. Some soap bubble lace.
Smell is floral hops mostly. Taste has a little floral hop kick up front but then is overwhelmed by the biscuity malt. This really trended more toward a brown ale as far as I'm concerned, even having some earthy nutty tones.
I didn't knock this quite as much as I would have if I knew for sure the growler was fresh and had been handled properly. Overall a nice beer I would like to try fresh at the brewery.

3/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of conifers, not very strong
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing fair – some irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body light orangish-amber, hazy
Flavor begins moderately bitter with piney resin; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends with a slight sweetness, leaving a chalky aftertaste.
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation.
Overall – meh. Another average IPA – the only thing special is that it’s from West Virginia, a hard state for tickers to find a local beer

Purchased at the Capital Market in Charleston, WV. Just got back from a family reunion there, and every year I grab something local from WV at this market. This year it was beer!
Poured into a Tulip glass.
a - dark and cloudy copper with a two finger creamy white head. Lots of sediment visible.
s - citrus, pine, and you're gonna laugh at this one, but it's what it reminded me of: wonton soup.
t -mild hoppy start, pine - hop finish.
m - acid and light
o - i like the pine element, but the mouth feel just isn't as good as I like, and it's not very complex.
