BrettTaylor (694) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Aromas of caramel, sweetness, subtle spiciness, and hop bitterness. Very smooth and a long finish.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
12oz can. Rating #174. Orange amber color with a light beige head. Mild bitterness with a caramel sweetness. Mild pine hop bite, more caramel sweetness, decent stuff. (2873)

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12oz can. Pours a clear amber color with a one finger dense foamy head that that leaves some lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy, with a hint of citrus. Taste has malt flavors of biscuit and bread that are well balanced with pine, grassy and grapefruit hops. A nice piney bitterness lingers through the finish. Medium bodied and somewhat creamy with moderate carbonation.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
October 2012. One of the better VA pale ales I’ve found. Nice bitter finish from this one. Amber color, malt, citrus, fruity aromas.

jackl (6305) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ Bizou, C’ville. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is toast, orange peel. A bit of fresh-cut grass. Slightly herbal. Not a massive, expressive nose. A bit faded. The taste is caramel-dipped orange peel. Toasted brown bread. Caramel malt. Mildly bitter on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, probably not the freshest bottle out there. I’ll have to revisit.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 Draft at Geer Street Garden. Well balanced and decently malty but not overly sweet pale ale.

bartlebier (2966) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight + full pint at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Standout beer in the flight, a conventional but well-executioned APA with a modest but home-made feel and taste to it, especially in the hops: leafy, orange zest, candied touches. Bit unstable, but worth ordering a full pint of - would like to try this signature beer from a can/bottle.

Travlr (18623) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Can. Clear deep golden amber color, thick, bright white head, solid lacing. Aroma of fresh lime. Taste is bitter citrus. Interesting.

jrob21 (3162) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
12 oz from beer run. Grassy kind of fruity aroma. Flavor has much the same with a mild hop profile, full body and lots of caramel malt. Finish has a little bit of red fruit and a grassy hay herbal finish.

Arayaga2 (1982) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Chestnut colored with an inch of tan head. Aroma is sweet, juicy citrus, with some floral notes. All this comes through in the taste, and it’s extremely drinkable. $2/12oz
