12oz can sent from Drake for free when he noticed the DC tick we traded for in 2009 didn’t count any longer – thanks so much Dan! Pours hazy orange with a one finger thick beige head that left delicate lacing. The nose is caramel, ripe citrus and light tropical fruit. The taste is grapefruit and pine with some faint caramel malt followed by a nice lingering resin finish. Medium bodied. Nice and hoppy solid APA – thanks again Dan!

Fruity, flowery aroma. Malty, caramel flavor with a little fruit and pine. Dry, smooth finish. First thing I’ve tried from this brewery, and it’s a good one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit heavy on crystal and/or amber malts, but good balance and drinkability overall. A fairly classic take on the american original.

Airport bar at Reagan National
Quite a dark copper pour for a pale ale, decent hopping but well short of IPA territory, easy to drink but heavy on the caramel malt.
