Nothing really special here, and I thought it would be a little better seeing FW is brewing it, maybe no time to put the love in it after brewing all of their great beers.

Didn't feel like adding a beer but per my server (after I asked) and menu this beer, at least the one on tap at the Va Beach location, is now made by Uinta out in Utah. Poured decent head on top of a light gold with minor lace. The aroma is some citric hops but not much else. Same for beer as it seems produced for the masses. The hops are just assertive enough that you know you're not drinking a light beer but other than some passing citric notes there is little discernible hop flavor and almost no malt backbone (some bread for a little filling body of beer). Even the finish is bland as not enough hops or carbonation to get noticed so comes across as watery.
