Virginia

3.79/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a lightly cloudy dark gold with good head and a lace ring around glass with an interesting aroma that unfortunately is very mild and contains a balance of citric hops and mild yeastiness. The body of the beer is light and smooth thanks to some nice yeast strains and there is a wheaty sweetness to the beer but the beer has a subdued, as if both sides were trying to let the other take advantage but neither would, yeast/wheat twang and spicy citric hop sharpness and finishes crisp and dry. Not a bad beer but not the best balance between styles or most composed beer.

Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Yard Hosue in Northridge, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, and citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has an interesting earthy quality to it.

3.91/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

(had this on tap at City Beer Store, San Francisco mid-late April - they called it "Icey Wheat IPA" on the board, info elsewhere suggests the name I gave it above - it's a "COllaboration" with the Colorado company Icelantic Skis)

A: Xmas-light yellow-gold, moderate haze, snotty/webby lace

S: honey n melon, boldish woody/floral/leafy/candy-apple aromas

T: honey and quite mild floral hops up front, lightly-toasted malt flavor and slight caramel, turbinado sweetness late, long phenolic finish

M: has a bit of a lager-like light/crisp, soft/smooth feel

O: very well-balanced, just not as much an "IPA" as I would have expected from OB - more of a lightly-hoppy pale wheat ale

Serving type: on-tap
