Sipping on this little monster as I type . . .
Let me say that I am an IPA guy. I've drank almost everything (categorically speaking), and yet my true love is the citrus, floral hoppiness and high ABV that IPAs deliver.
As for this one, my first instinct was to smile at its unfiltered nature. No irish moss, no messing around here. Just beer from it's secondary into a bottle. Simple, honest and straightforward, it presents itself with high floral notes, citrus sweetness and a piny nose that all but disappears at the tongue lashing it disperses at the finish.
Thick in the mouth, slight laces on the glass, a bit of over maltiness that is not distracting (like the Dogfish Head 120), but complementing. This is a well balanced beer. This has been crafted with quality.

This beer should be rated higher on here...I dont get it. This is an amazing American IPA that is hoppy with a dry, citric taste. The beer pours a generous head, this beer can be put down! Its comparable to some of the best brews for the style. The only draw back is the beer is very murky, but in the end who cares about the appearance.
Bottom Line: Very, Very good AIPA

Nice mouthfeel with a grainy middle yielding a nice hop aftertaste. This beer is a great blend for an IPA - not over the top hops but no wimpiness either. I've been doing a lot of Devil's Backbone 8 pt. IPA ( local to Charlottesville, Va). - big citrussy IPA lately and this is a delightful back off of that without being a pu%%y.
My old favorite was Starr Hill Pale ALe - since discontinued in favor of their Northern Lights - hoppy but a bit thin in the middle.
If you're an old IPA drinker this one might be the right mix for you. It is for me.

Love this beer! Very similar to west coast IPA's, with a sense of cascade hops. Much needed brew for this town! Very drinkable for 7.2% and has a clean finish. The appearance is a nice sticky head that has a piney aroma. I recommend this beer for anybody that likes IPA's.

Had on draft at a farm-to-table restaurant that promotes local farmers, brewers, etc. This beer is one of Parkway’s first and I think it has enough hops to please the ’hopheads,’ but is also accessible to those who are new to craft beer and IPAs. Will probably come back to often.

Had this numerous times before but recently on tap at the brewery. This is an exceptional beer and for this area (Roanoke, VA) it is a huge stepping stone to hopefully bigger craft beer scene! This is definitely Parkway's flag ship beer. Anyways the appearance is your typical amber orange with a 1 finger, quickly dissipating head. Right away I am blown away with the piney, citrusy dank hop aroma and the biscuity malts help sweeten the aroma! After the first sip I am hooked! The hops are so well played in this beer and the biscuit malts are the backbone that make it so damn drinkable! Sip after sip it gets better and better and leaves your taste buds wanting more! So if you're ever around the Roanoke Valley do yourself a favor and try this beer! You can thank me later!
