I had the opportunity to visit the Lost Rhino Brewery a month ago today (July 27th) while I was in the greater Northern Virginia Metropolitan Area, visiting my Sister and her husband. As a token of remembrance, and after taking a tour of the brewery itself, I picked up a deuce-deuce of MIG, to drink at a later date. Well, a month later, and about 7,000 miles away, I partook in a remembrance celebration, drinking this finely crafted IPA underneath the polluted night sky of the Central Korean Peninsula.

Poured from well-traveled bottle into a 6-ounce souvenir glass which was a parting gift of the brewery tour, the Ale came out lighter than I expected, especially given its 6%+ mathematical skills. With a rather heavy head, perhaps due to its pressurized trans-global shipping adventure, the beer still had a strong scent, emanating notes of citrus, with particular attention paid to the Grapefruit family. It was surprisingly light and fruity in both appearance and smell, two characteristics which would remain upon its consumption as well.

For an IPA, this beer brought it with regards to flavor, with the perfect mixture from the 4th Level Mage, and the flick of his 8-sided Polyhedral die. Hints of fruit masking any of the condescending tones set forth by the Hops, it was not only easy on the palate, but worked wonders on the mind as well. Silky smooove like Magic on a fast break, its mouthfeel complimented everything which had led up to that point.

The physical date with My Imaginary Girlfriend lasted about an hour, taking slow sips, as I stared up into the darkened night, only spotting one solitary star some 7,000 light years away. Yet the lingering after effects lasted for a good hour more, where I not only imagined I had a great time visiting this fantastic NoVa Brewery with a great Sister and Brother-in-law, but proof that it was not just my imagination, rather reality, as exemplified by the empty bottle on my desk...

Visited the brewery today and picked up a bottle of this on the way out. Awesome label!

Served in a DFH ribbed condom glass.

A: Obviously, this was unfiltered. Very, very murky, lighter than tangerine color, with a decent head that died down fast.

S: Very faint, maybe some puffs of yeast and citrus.

T: Really nice hop component... surprisingly good! Neither West nor East coast in its disposition... right in the middle. Grapefruit was there but not heavy, mandarin orange is more the theme of the day here.

M: Not thick or sugary in the least and not booze heavy at all. The lacing was moderate.

O: Really nice, all-around drinker. I'd buy this again for $6.50!

You can smell and taste the hop flavor which is a tad heavy on the front end, it is slightly bitte on the back end. Color appears typical of an IPA golden unfiltered appearance. Not really something I would enjoy or recommend having with a meal however its OK for a nice evening beer

A: This poured a cloudy gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like lemon zest and grapefruit, with some sweet honey and bitter resin.
T: It tasted like bitter citrus zest and resin, with some sweet honey and a bit of floral hops. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. Very nice full body.
D: This had a good scent and better taste, with huge body and a clean crisp finish. So easy to drink and enjoy, even if not earth shattering. Solid brew.
