Hardywood Great Return West Coast IPA



One of the things you may not know about Clare & Dons is that they have a pretty interesting selection of craft beer cans (so you can have them on their outdoor patio) in stock. I tried a 16oz can of Ricmond Virginia's Hardywood Great Return West Coast IPA. Here's what is up with this beer, where you can get it, and for how much.

Brewer's Description: 
old, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water. These efforts have culminated recently with the symbolic return of the endangered Atlantic sturgeon, a prehistoric, yet majestic behemoth of a fish, spotted as far up the James River as the fall line in Richmond. (via Hardywood)

I was surprised that I didn't really fall in love with this beer, and I think I need a second chance. I love these hoppy west coast style IPAs.
