3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Gingery orange colour. A quite poky (abv-wise) APA, drifting more into IPA territory. Good clean Mouthfeel. Plenty of pungent hops throughout. Some spicy, tangy notes on the palate. Maybe some orange peel. Slight residual sweetness on the finish but not too stick. Very solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At grill. Fairly clear. Slight haze decent aroma. Really good tasting crisp brew. A little astringent but I actually thought this was not a downer. Crisp finish. I could hang out at the bar and drink this for a long time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia.
Th beer is transparent and light orange hued with a quarter inch of head. As the head recedes, it coats the glass with lacing. The aroma is a balance of malt and hops, with subtle notes of candied fruit. A bit sweet, with a light bitterness in the back. Light bodied but not thin with appropriate carbonation. Simple, drinkable. Overall, this was ok.
Serving type: on-tap
