A: Amber color with a cloudiness only possible in an unfiltered beer, nice head
S: Smells of Citra hops and strong orange peel along with other fruits
T: Strong orange/citrus flavors, then a moderate bitterness of the Citra and finishes very smooth with absolute no alcohol taste.
M: Light and well carbonated
O: This is my go to beer. Although not a bitter as many IPA's this one has a good balance of bitterness to sweetness.

I have had this in bottles, on tap and straight from the taps at brewery. Outstanding beer.

Always considered this more of an APA than a true IPA. Well-flavored, but the hop bill is not overbearing, a good option for intro-level IPA drinkers

This one fell short for me. Come across with assertive bitterness and hop flavor right up front and then that fades quickly to almost a stale flavor. Not enough pop or citrus sweetness. Just needed a little something

I've crushed many of these, and it is a nice go-to when fresh! A nice staple around roanoke and a damn fine IPA! Citrusy and grassy, the way I like it!

I hadn’t heard of this brewery before, but it comes from my state and it looked like a legitimate IPA, so I grabbed a fresh batch that was already chilled, brought it home, and poured into a nice tall glass to let those beautiful hops do their thing. I has 7.2% ABV and 67 IBUs so let’s see what it is like.

Look-It pours a frothy and medium thickness head with large bubbles along the perimeter. The beer has a refreshingly cloudy look (so many IPAs I’ve recently reviewed were as clear as glass) and an off yellow-amber color with golden fringes.

Smell-The smell is largely based off of mango, pineapple, and clover hops with a honey-based malts backbone that is complementary.

Taste-I get citrus and pine, namely grapefruit rind, tangerine, and TONS of orange peel at the tip of the palate. The pine shines through like sucking on a Christmas tree and the resins bleed onto your advanced palate. The malts take backstage, but not too far back and are honey and cracker based deliciousness.

Mouthfeel-I get a medium-bodied feel with a sticky note (not the paper ones in school though, lol) and a mild carbonation content. The tongue is left with a strong resinous coating that is pleasant and pine-dominated…remember the Christmas tree sticking out of your mouth.

Overall-I was pleasantly surprised by this otherwise unknown brewery. They really brought something new to the table, or should I say, palate. It has a nice balance between each relevant component and I’d definitely say that I will try this variety again. Cheers!

Went to Virginia and told the guy that worked at TW to recommend an IPA from the state. This is what he recommended. Definitely not a bad beer, pretty standard IPA

Nice looking IPA, with only a few floaties, which is fine. Head lasted longer than anything I've ever seen. Unfortunately not much in the way of vivid hop character. More of a malty, English style. I came away slightly disappointed, but glad I tried it.
