Extraordinary IIPA from one of the Old Dominion's finest breweries, this came fresh in a crowler. Opaque and super frothy, impossible not to love. Can only drink one a night!

An outstanding IPA even for someone who doesn't typically go for IPAs. Very drinkable, smooth and packed with flavor.

Poured a cloudy orange body with hearty head that died slow and left lace ring down glass. The aroma is mostly citric hops and has a touch of peppery spiciness in it or something akin to spices. Smooth, medium bodied beer with a dirty, earthy citric hop bite that has an undercurrent of grapefruit sweetness. Just enough of a caramel and bready malt base to add enough sweetness and balance to prevent beer from being too hopped and bitter. Clean finish that hides ABV and just an enjoyable high ABV IPA that isn't overly hopped but hopped right.
