Virginia Pour House Notes: This beer pours a pale, hazy straw color with a nice foamy white head. The aroma is mixed with sweet citrus notes and strong pine and earthy notes. Bitter citrus and pine flavor pops out immediately, with some sourness in the middle and finish. The body is surprisingly light for 8.5%, with a buttery mouthfeel. The beer finishes with a lingering pine hop bitterness. This is a solid IPA, but a bit too resinous overall for me despite being pretty drinkable.
