look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Golden with a copper tinge, filtered, little carbonation, a finger of off white head which fades fast.

S: Animal offal, canned peas, clean linen, little hop or floral or citrus or any other ipa quality, more like a lager. Slight hint of spices.

T: Bitter white grapefruit comes to play right at the beginning, light sweetness to balance this, clean linen. Simple, but says it all at once.

M: Medium syrup and powdery balance, medium fine bubbled carbonation.

O: What was lacking on the nose comes in on the tongue, surprising you with a very good tasting ipa. Bought at Trader Joe’s Williamsburg, VA. I’ve been looking for Virginia beers while passing through, and found this amongst a few others.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed 5/24/14 on vacation in Williamsburg, VA. Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a plastic cup in a hotel. Already drank two quarts (64 ounces) at Chowning's Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg.

Appearance: Pours a dark golden with a thin white head.

Smell: Light citrusy hops and thin malt aroma.

Taste: Nice light hop bite. Not terribly bitter, but enough. Pale ale malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thin and no strong aftertaste.

Overall: Fairly light for an IPA. More in line with most standard pale ales. Not bad at all, a good choice whilst in Colonial Williamsburg.
