3.6/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Orange gold in color with a nice head that dissipated through the glass. very little lacing through the glass but

S: not sure if it was my sinuses but didn't get a super strong smell from the glass but did have hops and a hit of malt in the end smell. does smell good

T: while cold i had a strong hops flavor that evens out with malt as the beer warms the malts have a sweet bready taste leaving the hops to end on the finish of the beer over all taste is good but i honestly expected more hops

M: more carbonation than i expected that dissipates in the mouth. Carbonation takes away from the beginning flavor but in the middle the malts tend to pop through leaving a good hoppy flavor on the end.

O: Overall a good beer. okay hoppiness, and a nice balance of malt and bread notes. Like i said for an IPA i expected more hops but still was not disappointed. . Overall good and i would suggest trying it especially since its a seasonal brew

Serving type: bottle

A: Orange apricot in color. A little dusty in the glass with some frothy white head on top, some fish eyes popping through.

S: Hoppy with pine and grapefruit notes. A little bit of an earthy smell going on, as well as caramel and bread notes. Citrus zest and floral notes round out the finish with a hint of grass.

T: Flavor wise there is a nice hoppiness, starting caramel notes and a little dark bread, followed by grapefruit, citrus zest and pine. The finish is lemon peel.

M: Medium in body, with very active carbonation. Certainly feels fairly effervescent on the tongue. The finish has a nice smoothness to it.

O: Overall very nice. Good hoppiness, and a nice balance of malt and bread notes. I could actually go for a touch more hop flavor. I think the bitterness is right on point. Overall very good, and perhaps a small taste of what the terroir of RVA is like.
