Lightly cloudy golden amber body; light carbonation; nice white head, fluffy and sticky with a touch of rocky character. Appealing nose; mild sweetness and bready malt components with a decent dosage of pine resin; white pepper. Well-balanced taste; lightly sweet grain base with a fairly bold hop bitterness; a slight herbal and spicy note. Medium body; sticky.

A nicely crafted non-hazy India pale ale. It may not have a real 'wow' factor, but it's balanced and tasty while masking the relatively high ABV. Good stuff.

12oz can. Stamped on can bottom is '10/10/22 BRING BEER'.
Mostly clear, with some cloudiness in the upper portion of the glass. Pale gold colored body. One finger of white fluffy head. Leaves rings of lacing on the non-drinking side of the glass.
Aroma has a toasted malt base, with hops expressing more pine than citrus or tropical fruits.
Taste has an old school bitterness, with pine as the main flavor. Good malt base. some vague citrus mid to late palate. Mostly pine in the aftertaste.
Medium mouth feel, with a drying effect in the mouth. Very good carbonation.
An IPA that is far away from the trendy soft, fruity, sweet beers offered by so many. This beer fits the trend from years ago but is a pleasant reminder of what once was popular.

Canned on 5-11-22

Been trying to find a WV beer to get the tick and since the top 100 list on BA only has 30 beers it seems they don't make a lot.

Pours a goldenrod color with a little haze. Fluffy white head recedes quickly leaving adequate lacing.

Smell of sweet malt with some citrus reminiscent of candied fruit.

Taste opens with sweet, sticky malt followed by more malt with a hint of generic fruit briefly in the middle followed by overpowering and abrasive bitterness that stays for a while.

Medium bodied with a sticky malt syrup attribute.

Overall a fair to mediocre beer that isn't worth trying unless you need a WV tick.

This one pours a golden amber color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like very malty, with an astringent and perfumey hop character.

This is very underwhelming. It's just bitter and malty, without any real interesting hop character to speak of. It feels outdated and out of place in this day and age.

This is light bodied, mostly crisp, and drinkable enough, even though it's not really an enjoyable affair.

This one can be safely and completely skipped.

Appearance: A bubble show builds the head to two fingers, squatting atop the clear light amber liquid; decent retention with a splattering of lace

Smell: Pine and sulfur hop tones mingling with bread and caramel

Taste: The piney hops stake their claim early and often here, with the bread and caramel malt flavors holding their own, underneath; the bitterness from the sulfur lingers, however, well into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: An old school IPA with a bit too much sulfur in the finish

Thanks, Treyliff, for the opportunity

A bushy, white, one inch foam slowly morphs to a creamy veil. A dense coating of lace is deposited on a PBGC pint glass wrapped in threads of glass. The beer is opalescent, orange-gold (SRM4-6). Tiny bubbles are everywhere, all racing to the top.

Pineapple opens the aroma, and yields to grapefruit. Later, orange pith and pine form a solid background. Warmth oddly diminishes the character.

This IPA is more bitter than I had expected, which may be in part due to the number of NEIPAs I have enjoyed lately. Orange flavors work well with the pineapple. Grapefruit and pine are also evident, though all rather pithy. Some cracker malt is also present just before a long, drawn-out finish that returns bitterness to the forefront.

The body is full, with a density similar to pear nectar. It is almost dense. The texture is soft and fluffy, perhaps due to the background of fine carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, yet well-controlled -- about as expected.

This is a good American IPA and well-suited for relaxing with or without casual conversation. I enjoyed this one on a bitter cold and snowy night after a long drive home.

Can on the RBSG bus. Medium amber with small frothy head. Big dank, musty aromas, nice to see on an East Coast IPA. taste adds some nice malts to the big hops, but in the end the funky hops are what you’ll remember.

Not much to look when it was set in front of me pale golden yellow almost like a macro lager. I wasn’t expecting much but I was wrong. A really good IPA outside of the citrus realm. Hoppy, earthy and a really good crisp clean finish. Great beer.

12oz can into a Teku

Look: Pours a clear light copper/amber with a big, soapy off-white head that reduces to a thin ring but leaves plenty of sticky lacing down the glass.
Smell: Mostly sweet caramel malt/toasted bread upfront. Lighter notes of grapefruit, orange, citrus peel, mango, and pineapple balanced out by a healthy dose of bitter pine/earth/resin.
Taste: Rather light at first, mostly toasty caramel malt... then earthy, bitter, citrusy, resiny, hops come roaring in.
Feel: A sticky medium bodied brew with a dry finish. Small bubbles and light carbonation.
Overall: Delicious if you like your IPAs to showcase a strong earthy bitterness while still remaining well balanced and incredibly drinkable.
