Canned on 06/14/22 stamped on bottom rim of can. Poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Hazy light golden with solid 2-finger frothy white head with good retention and many lines of sticky lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasant but is low intensity with lime, strawberry, pine, and lemongrass with some indistinct darkness in the background. Esters are low but fruity, Not much for malt character in the aroma.

T: Flavor is also medium intensity at most, off the level of the top tier of the new gen IPA style. Strawberry, lime, orange, and tangy lemongrass with hints of pine and pineapple cut through in the finish, giving this beer some bite, which is welcome along with the moderate bitterness. Malt is supporting but not a big flavor contributor. Esters are low if at all, possibly a bit floral and light fruity.

M: Feel is solid with medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

O: A nice beer and my first from VBC. I will give more of there stuff a try — Keep VA Beautiful IPA is a solid Mosaic single-hop IPA - I wish the hop aroma and intensity were a bit higher although it is nice easy drinking.

Beers for a cause! Love those. This one is a straight Mosaic bomb. Super aromatic with pungent flavors. Dank. Really smooth thanks to the soft red wheat malt. And proceeds support recycling efforts in Virginia. Winner!

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a mostly cloudy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Pretty good, but not great lacing.

S: A solid aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a fair shot of hops (not too much, though), some tropical fruit (pineapple, in particular), and a lot of citrus fruit (lemon, orange). A light, sweet, and effervescent flavor. It's fairly well-balanced, with it being not too cloying or too bitter. It's subtle and well-balanced.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, easy to drink beer. Worth a look.

yellow-gold in color, nicely hazed. average head. Aroma of pineapple and lots of fresh squeezed orange juice. Taste has the perfect amount of bitterness with lots and lots of very refreshing citrus. Mouth feel is light and so so refreshing and finish is malty and citrusy yet very clean

The edge of the bottom of the can says: "CANNED ON 03/25/19"

Appearance: The body of the beer is a hazy beige color. It has a short fluffy white head with decent retention and lacing.

Aroma: I get a full nose of garlic and onion with a hint of black pepper. It has a very savory aroma.

Taste: The beer has an interesting combination of flavors combining mango with a hint of cedar and a bit of garlic at the end. It finishes woody.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth textured with a body that leans on the higher end of light. It has a medium-low bitterness and a wet finish.

Overall: It's a nice beer with a nice woody, herbal character mixed in with just a bit of fruit. It isn't a beer I would drink a lot of but it would work well in a mix-a-six.

Bought 4pack at VBC. Well made very nice IPA. Big fan of 100% mosaic brews and was not disappointed. Unsure about malt though... seemed a bit earthy raw and bitter that didn’t quite work for me with the mosaic hops.
