4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery.....I really like this one! You taste the quality ingredients in this one....great malts allowed this beer to start a little sweet and the killer hops lead to a nice bitter finish....Well balanced and bold....beautiful amber colouring with ’hoppy’ aroma....I’m craving more but I’m nowhere near D.C......very good!

Draft sampler at Capitol Hill location on July 11, 2009. Dark golden color with a hint of amber, sweet and hoppy aroma, nicely balanced malt and hop flavor for the most part, with hops becoming more prominent as the glass warms. Could be a little bolder but all in all a pretty good beer.

A good pale ale that has a bit more, or a bit darker, malt base than average.
Plenty of earthy and citrusy hops.
