Friends Of Dorothy is a beautifully bright 7.3% abv IPA. It's dry-hopped with an eclectic mix of rotating hops to showcase flavors from around the world coming together as one.

The current batch blends fruity Citra and the prominent tropical notes provided by El Dorado hops. And most importantly: proceeds from sales of our Pride IPA benefit Richmond-based non-profit for all: Equality Virginia!

The additional stripes on the can label were added to our standard Pride imagery to highlight a greater inclusivity, with additional black & brown stripes at the top and blue, pink, and white stripes added to the bottom all representing members of our community.

We show pride in who we are. We have pride in what we brew. We take pride in all of you. And we're proud to do our part to ensure that everyone can live like they're Friends Of Dorothy with pride.

Friends Of Dorothy Pride IPA pours a slightly hazy, golden color with a large, long-lasting, frothy head. The aroma has lots of citrus. The flavor is sweeter, with lots of citrus and a dry finish. The feel is a little flat. Overall, it's a little sweeter but dry.

Tall 16 ounce can.

The pour here is more the moderately hazy, dull squash soup in color, under a mid sized and lasting frothy cap and leaving nice looking thicker sheeting all over the glass.

Ripe melon and pineapple on the sniff.

Tasty, smooth in the mouth and inviting NEIPA. Ripe and over ripe stone fruits, melon and pineapple all coming to mind. Mighty fine, quite delicious and well worth a try.

A: The beer is very hazy and a little pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pineapple are present in the nose along with hints of pine and spicy hops.
T: The taste has flavors of stone fruit along with notes of mangos and spicy hops with hints of pineapple in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has a very interesting combination of aromas and flavors from the hops.
