Virginia

3.9/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Filled growler 8/3. Consumed and reviewed 8/4.

A: Light brown / dark copper or bronze color. Not a very typical DIPA look. Relatively little head. No visible sediment or haze.

S: Some grapefruit and some copper. Lots of brown malts - light brown sugar, caramelized sugar, etc. Smells very sweet with some citrusy hops. Maybe a hint of pine or resin, but that's definitely in the background.

T: Just as sweet as it smells. Seems more like a barleywine than a DIPA. Actually, seems more sweet than even some barleywines, or at least less complex. It's more of a pure sugary sweetness rather than the toffee and butterscotch I get from most barleywines. Grapefruit and other citrus hop flavors are there as well.

M: Pretty thick and viscous, even for a DIPA. I'm guessing that there's a lot of latent sugar in this and that Dominion just loaded up on the malt and the yeast stopped around 10%? Just my guess.

O: Not bad overall. Would be a good introductory beer to the world of DIPAs for folks who like sweet things and some hops.

Serving type: growler

4.1/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Enjoyed during the tasting portion of the Old Dominion Brewery tour. This beer was limited to a 50 barrel production according to our tour guide.

Enjoyed in a Old Dominion sample glass.

A - A deep, amber color with a half-finger head that quickly faded. A small amount of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.

S - A very classic IPA smell with intense hoppiness and grapefruit aromas.

T - A very tasty DIPA. A great combination of hops, caramel, pine and citrus. This is not a beer you want to drink fast or a lot of. The alcohol is very noticeable. The others in our tour group were BMC'ers and they couldn't handle the intensiveness of this beer.

M - Lightly carbonated. A thick beer. A bitterness lingers after each sip.

O - A really good beer. I would love to buy this but alas it is limited to select locations for a very limited time. Old Dominion is part of InBev but the folks I met there were very knowledgeable and truly dedicated to putting out a quality product. I'm really glad I got to sample such a low-production run beer.

Cheers!

Serving type: on-tap
