Unexpected growler sent by ygtbsm94. Brad, you da man.
The beer is transparent and golden orange with a thick, lasting white head that coats the pint glass with sticky lacing. The aroma offers hops, light pine, bready malts. Though the aroma was fine, the flavor is much better than I would have expected. Normally, I oppose IPAs with too much of a malt body, but this beer offers beautiful balance. Lightly sweetened bread with a touch of oranges. Smooth on the palate with abv hidden well. Nothing earth shattering here, but this is certainly a solid brew. A nice beer to drink while watching the NCAA tourney.

Lighter side of gold, slightly hazy. About a half-inch head with tight, small bubbles that fade down to a ring in a few minutes. Decent lacing.
Medium to Medium+ aromatics. A base of dank, resinous, burnt orange with overtones of pine, grapefruit, and dried flowers. Very complex, really. Layered aromas with the dank aromas sitting heavy under the bright notes of juicy citrus rind/flesh and flowers.
Bitterness is firm for the listed 67 IBUs but very pleasant. Very large resin notes hit first followed by peppery spice, dried rose petal, grapefruit, orange peel...really fresh taste. Very much tastes like the smell of opening a fresh bag of whole-leaf hops. Finish is almost infinite. I had a 15 minute drive home from the brewery after I tried this and when I arrived home I still had all great flavors hanging around on my palate.
Medium- bodied. Carbonation on the medium+ end, verging on a little too spritzy, but really, overall very pleasant.
A very impressive first offering from a new brewery in VA. With this first release they already hold the top spot for my favorite VA brewed, american IPA. It sounds like they have a lot of exciting things in the works, and if they are as impressive as this IPA, southwest VA has some good things to look forward to.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a orange red amber with a 2 finger head. Smells of piney and floral notes very strong and complimentary. Tastes of earthy and piney hops, slight honey taste, and balanced grain, but the hops far dominate. The beer is carbonated correctly, goes down smooth, and is dangerously sessionable with its light body. Overall, a superb beer.

On draft at the brewery. Golden color with slightly off white head, good lacing and decent head retention; aroma and taste both are vibrant with tropical fruit, some pine, this is NOT a simple IPA, enough going on here to keep things interesting. Taste followed aroma, some pithy citrusy tropical like fruit, a little pine, with a fairly deft touch of bready malt sweetness to begin to balance; will likely please both “east and west coast” with sufficient amount of bitterness, and then also to likely pull in some non ipa drinkers too. Very solid brew.

First run of bottles! I've had this numerous times before on tap at the brewery, but this is my first bottle!
A- This west coast style IPA pours a nice, slightly hazy, nearly transparent orange. The small amount of white foam built up from the pour dissipates, but the sticky lacing remains.
S- Fragrant, resinous piney notes are immediately noticeable. There is a nice malty sweetness in the nose as well. This is exactly what I want an IPA to smell like!
T- This is where the beer REALLY shines! The bready malts are there, but are blended damn near perfectly with the hops. Some bitterness peeks through, but what is most prominent is the juicy, citrusy hops. Big tropical fruit, pine, caramel, orange/grapefruit, etc. Great mouthfeel and carbonation. As another reviewer pointed out, the finish is absolutely remarkable.
O- I am blown away at how perfectly balanced this IPA is. Ryan, and the Parkway crew have outdone themselves with this one, their flagship beer, "Get Bent Mountain IPA." I foresee this beer putting them on the map in no time at all! I sure hope it does...but if not, that just means more for me! I highly recommend this one!
