Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-06-2010

This wonderfully aromatic strong ale boasts a most generous addition of a Nugget and Columbus hop varieties, weighing in at 100 IBUs. Enjoy the perfume-floral esters from the “dry-hopped” Columbus hops and the bitter-sweet palate of this unique brew.

On tap at the Virginia location today

Pours a dark gold with a finger of foam. Not much carbonation, good lacing and retention. Smells of some floral citrusy hops, pine, and a sweet bready malt. Nothing amazing happening here, but a solid aroma. Taste of strong hops, a bit of grapefruit, a modest malt, and a touch of alcohol. Feel is a nice crisp medium body. Alcohol is concealed well, easy to drink. Pretty bitter. Overall this beer is pretty good. Nothing too eye popping about it, but worth a try if you're in the area. It's a bit weak for a double ipa, but a lot stronger than Icky
