Great beer. Very Hoppy. Had it on draft then bought two bottles to take home. Enjoyed the draft as much as the beer. The staff gave us a great tour in northern Va. I would encourage this beer to hops lovers. Many of their other beers are great as well. Thanks Mark for the tour.

A: Pours a pale orange with decent foamy and clingy lace.

S: Aroma points to lots of hops and citrus.

T: A large grapefruit explosion with a hint of the mango used in the brew. The hops are very present though balanced by the fruit and malt taste. This is my kind of DIPA that has malt and hops in harmony. The alcohol is hidden very well and just give a hint of warming as it goes down.

M: Medium body with good mouthfeel. Not syrupy at all.

D: One of my favorite DIPAS of the year so far. I'm shocked that the beer came out this good. If you like balanced DIPAS that bring the hops, this beer is for you.

Way better than reviews would suggest, I'm a big fan of this. Can't say much to specifics right now but it's good. The mango seems to amplify the tropical hop notes as opposed to dominating the taste. This beer is definitely worth a shot, my only complaint is that there is an absurd amount of sediment in this bottle, it's pretty ridiculous.
