Our American style pale ale is medium to full bodied with an assertive hop bitterness and aroma. The flavor and fragrance of American hops mush with a strong malt backbone.

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!

Pours a cleat amber-orange. Has a very faint aroma of light fruit. Has a citrus hop, grain, pine, and caramel malt taste. The caramel malt taste lingers with some bitter hop aftertaste.

Light, somewhat hoppy, with an off-putting aftertaste. Overly sweet, some canned corn. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

Pretty good, with some tangerine and pine. Both this and the Unite were good pale ales at the brewpub. Pours light amber with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish, good balance with malt. Tap.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with a small white head. The aroma has some nuttiness, caramel, citrus. The taste has medium bitterness followed by a nitty malt balance. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

På fat. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av tropisk fruktighet och karamell. Karamell, kåda, grape och apelsin i smaken. Något svag sötma, fin beska. Fyllig kropp.

(US backlog Sep 2012) Draught@Capital City Brewing, Downtown DC 12/09/2012. Somewhere between a UK bitter and Magic Hat’s interpretation of a fruity IPA. Rather flat carbo. Ok but forgettable, bar and service enhancing the anonymity of their brews. 70/100

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.
