What the brewers say

“A Fairfax favorite! We call this ‘The County’ style IPA. Laid back, not too bitter, but sassy like a local. Late hops additions are Galaxy and Citra. Goes great in a hot tub or after yoga.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium-high intensity citrus and floral aroma with orange and lemon playing the major role. Low-to-moderate malt sweetness adds complexity and helps blend everything together. Alcohol is evident, but not hot.”

Flavor: “Well balanced West Coast IPA with a simple grain bill that brings a touch of toasted sweetness to balance the intense citrus hops character. Finishes fairly bitter with a slightly sweet kiss.”

Overall: “Well executed middle of the road West Coast IPA. Fairly big for the style on all fronts, but not in the ‘whack you over the head’ way. It finds the target without the overbearing bitterness that makes many IPAs less sessionable.”
