L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Very average lacing.

S: An incredibly average aroma of hops, citrus, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild shot of citrus (lemon, grapefruit, especially), light malt notes, some pine mixed in, way too much hops, a little caramel, and an herbal quality. Some of the ingredients of here are welcome, but they're overpowered by the obnoxious hops content. Very uneven, to say the least.

F: A good amount of carbonation with an overly bitter finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: This is just one of those beers that's too bitter and uneven to be successful.

A: This poured a clear copper with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like grapefruit and pine, with some dry earthy malt.
T: It tasted like earthy pine and grapefruit, with some dank herbal hops. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M; It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a decent IPA with clean but basic scent and taste. The body was ok, and the finish was relatively smooth, so it was pretty easy to drink. Not bad but forgettable.

Poured from a 12oz bottle packaged early June.

Aggressive hops at first sip. Has a floral quality but hops are all about the pine. Pleasantly surprised and a very drinkable IPA.

Thick, frothy head which recedes ever so slowly. Plenty of chunky lace on the glass. The color is darker amber with a mild haze.

Fresh, green hop aroma. Reminds me of recently opened hop pellet bag. Light caramel sweetness.

Nicely balanced. Thick body with muted carbonation. This gives the malt base a creamy element. The hop dominates as one might expect, but the beer retains the malt through the swallow. The aftertaste is spicy, like white pepper.

A delicious IPA. Hazy golden color with yellowish-white head that leaves lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, typical floral and fruity smell. Taste is a great oily, fruity hop-forward IPA profile. Hard to say how it's different from a lot of other "West Coast" IPAs (though it is from Virginia), but it is a nicely balanced example of the style.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Color is a dark orange with about a finger of white foamy head. Strong orange aroma with a hint of bread to it. Mild beer, just a little bitterness to it, primarily orange flavors with a little bit of bread towards the end. Finished cleanly and quickly with virtually no lingering. Overall it has a very nice balance to it, an easy drinking IPA that should do well by itself or with most meals.

12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed, tulip style glass. Look: amber. Smell: a bit piney. Taste: Good balance of malts and hops, not super hop forward. Feel: medium bodied. Overall, a good go to IPA.
