Virginia Pour House Review: I stopped in at a craft beer store down in Haymarket, VA called Crafted to pick up some beer for my trip to Asheville, NC. The owner told me they had been open for about a year and a half but I just recently found out about them from a neighbor. It’s a cool little store and they had a great selection of hard-to-find beers. While I was there, I picked up a couple beers from Adroit Theory, including Angel’s Trumpet. This is a beer that I have been coveting for a while now so of course I was excited to finally try it.
It pours a hazy pale straw color with a healthy white head. The aroma is faint, but there are notes of grass and straw with some mango underneath. The first sip bursts with citrus, with mango being the predominant flavor. There are also notes of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple. This beer has a huge citrus taste throughout the sip but also has a nice malt backbone to stand up to the immensity of the hops and citrus. The finish is clean and the bitterness lingers on the palate long after the sip is complete. This is one outstanding beer from Adroit Theory; the only downside is the price point, at $15 for a 12-ounce bottle.
