4-30-16 - On tap at The Fat Canary in Williamsburg, VA. Served in a tall Pilsner glass with just a bit of head. More golden than orange in color. Foam did not cling to the glass at all. Very hoppy taste. Not sure if this was their year round IPA, or one with a hop varietal (our server didn't know either). I had a couple just to be sure. I'll look these guys up the next time I'm in Virginia.

65 IBUs and hopped with 100% Amarillo. Nose is full of orange zest, and flavor follows along the same lines with herbal notes in the background. None of the aspirin taste in the finish common with beers using a lot of Amarillo. Nice and bright, without the earthy flavors common in a lot of east coast IPAs.

Poured a copper orange body with minimal head and lace ring. Citric hopped aroma with faint bitterness and minor caramel malt sweetness. The beer is light and easy to drink but does have some bitterness behind the citric hop profile but there is enough caramel malt sweetness for balance. Not the most flavorful or impactful beer but worth trying.
