Reddish auburn. Nice nose, very malty, a bit nutty, plenty of caramel. Similar profile in flavor, lots of caramel malts, nice balance of hops at the end. Good palate as well, bit creamy and sticky.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nutty and slightly vegetable pale malt aroma. Woody and dry with only the vaguest sweetness. Little hints of bitter chocolate. Quite a contrast with the Pale Rider, and I don't recommend that you follow one with the other. After your palate adjusts, its rather enjoyable. Medium light body. Could have used some more carbonation.

Lightly hazy, deeply golden ale with a medium-sized, fizzy, white head. Poor retention; excellent lacework.
The nose is of grapefruit, lemon, lightly malty notes and pine.
Moderately bitter flavor with lots of grapefruit peel.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish.

Part of a sampler at the Baltimore locaton. West coast style my butt. Where is the west coast flavor. Actually this had a flavor of any other Amber. Nothing special. Did finish a little on the dry side.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber in appearance. Very bold hop nose for an amber, with citrusy elements present. Body is medium, not too thin not real chewy either. A suprising treat from this DC brewery.

At the Baltimore location: A darker amber beer with little discernable aroma. It had a quietly malty flavor. An average American brewpub amber beer.
