Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Big scent of hops and citrus
Appearance- Pours a clear golden yellow with almost no head.
Taste- Very hoppy with a hint of citrus.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with mild carbonation.
Overall- A pretty good American IPA. I recommend that you try it.

Visited Virginia and picked this up before going home to Indiana. Here goes:

A: Alright. Cloudy orange-brown with a decent head and moderate lacing. Some carbonation.

S: Very light, but still detect citrus, pine, and some grapefruit. Also some cloying malt sweetness.

T: Follows the nose but with some added orange peel. Moderate hops and good malt.

F: Well carbonated but somewhat light.

O: Very average.
