Just as Patrick Henry once stood addressing the city of Richmond in 1775 to spur resistance against the tyrannical British Empire, 20 years ago we were stirred to join the cry for resistance against the tyrannical oppression of industrial beer. And now, the opening of our Richmond brewery is yet another shot in the salvo that has been fired on behalf of American brewing independence. If we wish to brew free, if we mean to retain our identity and preserve the privilege of access to independent craft beer, we must recognize it is a group effort. We do not stand alone. And so, on our new brewing grounds, we gathered with fellow craft breweries and “His Excellency,” Governor McAuliffe, to join together in force. A group cry of freedom & independence! Consider this aggressively hopped imperial IPA, jam-packed with Virginia raspberries and blackberries, a testament to our passion and unwillingness to settle or sell out! We think Patrick Henry would be proud, and hope you will be too.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Pours clear sepia with a thick and rather persistent buff head. Aroma presents resiny hops and toasted malt, just a whisper of berries. Resiny hops dominate the flavor, while the berry notes come through stronger - after a couple sips, the strawberry stands out while the blackberry remains a little shy. Mouthfeel offers firm, fairly viscous body and smooth but fizzy texture, with more berries appearing in the finish. Give me the liberty to drink good beer - and try different beers - or give me death!
