Aroma is full of grapefruit hops and toasty malt. Smells great, I don't know if it's me or not, but I tend to enjoy the aromas on APAs better than IPAs.
Crystal clear in the glass with a nice orange color topped by a kind of soapy looking white head. The head was bountiful but dissipated quite fast to a thin, respectable layer. Lacing is site nice, almost looks like the soap residue on my shower wall (good for a beer, bad for the shower).
New River has a really nice malty profile with low bitterness but a moderate hop profile which rounds it out nicely. I get this somewhat sweet bread component, like those Sweet Hawaiian Rolls you can buy at the supermarket. Interestingly enough, the hop flavor doesn't come across as grapefruit, but rather a bit more mango-ish. Tropical flavors are whats on the palate here.
Medium body and lower carbonation makes this a nice, almost session beer (almost), one can easily polish off a bomber without working too hard, but to savor it is a better idea. Overall this is a very very nice pale ale.

Crystal clear amber in color.
nice hop nose with malty backing. Smells nice and sweet.
great malt flavor that's got a good sweetness.
Some hops in the back to round it out. Lost its fiz a bit early.
Overall a decent brew, I'll have to try some more Lost Rhino stuff, this was a good introduction.

On cask at Rustico in Alexandria, VA. Review from notes.
The beer is a hazy light orange color with a white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some citrus, bread, biscuits, malt. Lots of bready characteristics in the flavor with a lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice, as is typical with a cask ale. Overall, a decent beer.

On tap at the Black Bear Bistro in Warrenton, VA
A clear yellowsh amber with average head and good lacing
The smell is faint, citrus
Taste is mainly piney and citrus, refreshing but not complex
Overall a good and drinkable Pale Ale, but far from outstanding.

Had on tap today at FireWorks in Arlington, VA. Poured into a pint glass. I believe the ABV was around 6% according to the menu.
a - Pour a somewhat clear orange yellow color with two inches of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, and breast malts. Lots of malts and fruit, not a ton of hops. Pretty nice.
t - Tastes of bready malts, fruity malts, citrus hops. Again, lots of malts and pretty enjoyable.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth and easy to drink.
o - Overall I thought this was a pretty good pale ale that was heavier on the malts than the hops, but I liked it. I enjoyed this one way more than the Face Plant I tried a few weeks ago. Very easy to drink and felt like I could have had a few of them. Would have it again.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with just a touch of golden hue. There is a layer of off white head that goes away completely.
Smell: This beer has a mild smell with some malt sweetness and just a touch of hops. Nice but not very strong.
Taste: This is a pretty good beer. Bready malt with a good amount of hop bitterness. I would like the sweetness of the body to stick around for a bit longer to accompany the bitterness. This is a good food beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a good amount of tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this pale ale quite a bit. Not perfect by any means, but I liked it. I would search out other offerings from this brewery.
