Sampled on draft at PP Dupont and WF Fair Lakes.

Move along, not much to see (taste) here. Pours a copper amber with an unretentive white head. Aroma and flavor are light caramel malt and yep, nothing. Hops? Bitterness? Complexity? Anything resembling a non-BMC beer is nowhere to be found. Medium light "body". Ugh, this is a boring disappointment.

On tap at green turtle Dulles poured into shaker. Slight malt nose. Some citrus hop hidden beneath sheets of malt sweetness.

From 07/28/11 notes. had on tap at Whitlow's in Arlington, VA. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a deep amber color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident. No lacing or retention.

s - Smells of caramel malts and bready malts. Not getting much hops, and while not bad, pretty average.

t - Tastes mostly of caramel malts again, with some light bread. Again, no real hops to it, though there is a tiny bit of bitterness. Not that great.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation, with a slight bitterness to it. A touch overcarbonated.

o - Overall an average IPA at best. Not a lot of hops and not a ton going on in the nose or taste, except a tiny bit of bitterness. Glad to see all the new breweries opening up in the area but this isn't one of the better IPAs/beers I've had so far from any of them. Wouldn't seek it out again.

Had a glass of this at the brewery. Pours a nice orange with a nice two finger head. Appearance is ok. Smell is good, has some citrusy notes, fruits, but smells a bit off for an IPA...can't really find the words to describe it, but definitely missing something... Taste is ok, not bad, but not an IPA of note. Mouthfeel is good, average. Overall, a average IPA, not bad...

Aroma of malt, floral, grass, mild citrus. Taste orange zest, slight biscuity, caramel malt, herbal, bitter finish.

Gaahhh! Another tepid entry into the IPA category by a new Northern Virginia brewery! WTF guys? This is an amber ale, this is an ESB, THIS IS NOT AN IPA!!!

This is not the late 80's/ early 90's people. I can get Sam Adams and Redhook ANYWHERE these days, and so can everyone else that wants boring conservative craft beer.

This one has less hops than the Port City IPA - it's all caramel malt. This is an English Pale Ale minus the interesting candy apple/ stone fruit/ biscuity character.

So NOT a good step for an opening move by a new craft brewery in 2011.
