Slightly cloudy orange coloured body with a nice dense off-white head. Slightly sour-skunky aroma mixed with some hops and malt. Medium to Light-bodied; Assertive hop bitterness with a light maltiness. Aftertaste subtley hopped-but in a nice way. Overall, a decent beer-lacking a bit but showing nice character. I sampled this beer on Draught at Old Dominion Brewery in Ashburn, Virginia on 30-December-2003.

Interesting beer, I only had a small draft. Very hoppy but has a different mouth feel to a standard APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hops are everywhere in this beer, but come across as rather blunt, and not at all like the typical hoppy American ale (Hop Devil, Stone), with their complex citric character. The hop character here reminds me a bit more of what you’d see in Orval or Ti’J. Very good beer.

The worst beer brewed at the brewery and it is still very good! It has all the hops you’d want in a strong pale ale (probably too strong for an American pale ale). Pleasant finish, even with the high yeast count. Go to this brewery!

They say it’s heavy on the yeast and hops, but I think that’s an understatement - very heavy on the hops, but not a bad beer
