One of the better examples of an india pale ale. This beer is widely available on tap & in can in my area, and I always find myself going back to it. Very glad DC Brau opened up.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can to glass. Pours a clear rich amber light copper color with a decent retaining off-white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is a pungent citrusy fruity hoppiness, maybe orange and peach, with a mild malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit lacking, with a moderate lingering bitterness, not well balanced with a mild malty fruity sweetness. Light to medium in body. Solid IPA, but a bit lacking in flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red-orange, almost brown, with a thin tan head out the can. Aroma is big on floral hops -- dank and weedy -- slight sweetness and caramel.
Big caramelized sugar punch, woody/floral hop build really dries things up. Almost a char-like character on the finish, like cedar or something.
Super earthy IPA, sounds east coast enough for me. Solid showing, but not my style.
