Notes & Commercial Description:

Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

Look - yellowish golden color with a good head and lacing.
Smell - piney citrus smell
Taste - very similar to the smell. Pretty bitter and lots of grapefruit citrus and some pine. Good malt backbone.
Feel - medium lite body and carbonation. Goes down smooth.
Overall - great beer but could use more carbonation and body.

Off keg at Blue5 in Roanoke, VA. Very clear golden Amber with thin off white head which laces nicely. Slight citrus/piney aroma. Somewhat thick mouth feel. Nicely balanced bitterness with sweet undertones. Overall a very tasty ale. I'll have another soon!

On tap at Time Out. Pours coppery with little foam into tulip. Strong lacing. Delicate apricot aroma with little else. Creamy start with pine, hop, and orange rind. Clean hop bite with crisp carbonation. Decent if uncomplicated.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours light amber with offwhite head and fair amount of lacing
Smells of citrus (grapefruit mostly - lemon zest), pine, very floral
Tastes strongly of citrus, hoppy floral notes without the bitterness, well balanced and with clean palate and mildly sweet finish
Medium body with fair amount of carbonation.
Overall - really solid east coast IPA, I prefer maltier beers but I have to admit this beer was so good that I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up in the future, and has piqued my curiosity about these beers

Nice citrus aroma, good hoppy taste, good out of the bottle and better out of the tap as it should be. One of my current favorites

Real piney. I like it though. Citrus. Hoppy. Orange. The longer I think about it the better it gets.
