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

Poured an amber orange with a one finger white head that dissipated slowly into a thin ring with light lacing.

Aroma was weak and I could barely pickup hints of citrus and light malt.

Taste of citrus, pine, a light bready malt with a slight hop bite.

Mouth Feel was medium body, moderate carbonation which creates a fizzy feel at the beginning and settles into a smooth and slightly bitter finish.

Overall this is a good beer, well balanced, however, i a little more hop presence would make this a much better IPA.

A: Orange apricot in color. A little dusty in the glass with some frothy white head on top, some fish eyes popping through.

S: Hoppy with pine and grapefruit notes. A little bit of an earthy smell going on, as well as caramel and bread notes. Citrus zest and floral notes round out the finish with a hint of grass.

T: Flavor wise there is a nice hoppiness, starting caramel notes and a little dark bread, followed by grapefruit, citrus zest and pine. The finish is lemon peel.

M: Medium in body, with very active carbonation. Certainly feels fairly effervescent on the tongue. The finish has a nice smoothness to it.

O: Overall very nice. Good hoppiness, and a nice balance of malt and bread notes. I could actually go for a touch more hop flavor. I think the bitterness is right on point. Overall very good, and perhaps a small taste of what the terroir of RVA is like.
