3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange colour-very clear with a thin dense white head. Aroma from hops-floral and citrusey-not too potent with some off-aromas. Medium-bodied; Spicey potent hop character and actually fairly balanced with malt. Aftertaste bittered from the hops-not overly so, however! Overall, a definately good APA representation, worth trying! I got this growler courtesy of my sister's fiance and sampled it on 28-November-2003.

i liked this pale ale. Pale ales seem to freuqently be either hit or miss, i'd call this a hit minus. Wouldn't mind having again.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at DC postal location: Copper hue with medium head and no lacing, thin to medium-bodied. Fruity hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, some toasted malt sweetness is there. The taste is bitter with a piney undertone, lacks balance. Metallic finish, Watery and lively mouthfeel. Less than average APA, hoppy beers are okay, this one is not.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
At the Baltimore location: Dark copper beer. Bit of the hop character here, but with that "metallic" edge common to American pales. Average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber-gold color. Caramel aroma with some bitter notes to it. Refreshing flavor with an aftertaste of tonic water. There's a hint of anise or licorice in there, too. It's different, but good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 (9/6/06) Beers change. Nowhere is this more evident than in the case of a brewpub, where there’s really no commitment to consistency. Take this beer for instance, where 3.5 years since my last rating of it, either it’s undergone a complete transformation, or else the batch-to-batch variance is insane. Clear amber body topped by an off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, solid grapefruit, light caramel, pineapple. Light-medium body, crisp with light resin. (7/4/8/4/15)
(3/17/03) Clear amber body. Aroma is faint, mild sweet, malty. Taste is lightly roasted malts with some floral hops, finishing floral hoppy and roasty bitter. (5/3/6/3/12)

This is and OK beer, nothing special. Not a typical Pale, a little too light. GABF 2002

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not great, especially for the price. Has a fairly nice head, and the aroma is classic Pale Ale. But this is nothing to write home about.
