Decent enough as a pale ale. Not outstanding, but towards the higher end of what I enjoy with Sierra Pale being my gold standard by which all else is judged. If I see it on tap somewhere around town and nothing else speaks to me, I would definitely get one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint glass at 100 Montaditos in the Navy Yard, DC. Appearance is cloudy, almost medium color, full finger of white-head. The aroma is very aromatic, with strong, floral, aromas of grass, pine, citrus, and hops. Taste is similar to aroma, plus some bitter. Palate is medium-bodied. Overall this is a pretty good beer, I’d definitely drink it again and again.

12 oz at Jaleo in D.C. Pours a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is a little bit grassy and hops and a little malt. Taste is a little bit hoppy but really just kind of the standard pale ale.

Good citrus aroma. Taste is bitter and unbalanced for a pale. Flavor is okay at first, but lingering bitterness on the tongue is a problem. Probably not one I’d buy again. (this was from a can, perhaps better in other forms).

Can... Pours hazy and orange with zillions of brown floaties and a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Good retention. The nose is an assortment of citrusy grapefruit, spicy and grassy hops, and crunchy, cookie-like malts. Full-bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Pithy, dry, resiny bitterness in both the flavor and snappy finish. A bit tongue-numbing, but it’s washing down this pizza just fine. Can courtesy of ygtbsm94!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy deep gold. Little to no head at all. Aroma just smells like dust and old cardboard. Aroma mirrors the aroma but add yeast into it.
