Blue Ridge Grill (Broadlands, VA) - draft in pint glass
A - Golden copper, 1/2 inch foamy/creamy head that lasted to the end; great lacing
S - not too muuch here, distant fruit
T - Strong, but not overpowering hop, mild bitter, secondary fruit and orange citrus
F - Nice body and just the right level of carbonation
O - Not an IPA fan, or at least I haven't been, but they are slowly growing on me; bottom line is that I liked this beer, easy to drink, healthy flavors, good balance, moderate complexity

Look- one of the best looking beers I have seen. Draught pours a persistent head and beautiful dark amber color.

Smell- not too much floral but citrus and malt predominate.

Taste- heavy hops but not overpowering like other IPAs.

Feel - silky smooth with a crisp finish. The hops don't linger a lot. I like that.

Overall - wonderful but a bit over-hyped. A must try. Honestly I prefer more floral smelling and tasting IPAs but I would definitely buy this again.
