3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Travlr for my 1st DC brew! Aroma of fresh citrus/pine with light caramel malts. Appearance is unfiltered caramel orange with sticky white head. Flavor featured fresh, juicy hops and some lingering bitterness in the finish, but not overly so. Palate was bubbly and soft. Well done.

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).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

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.

Big fluffy eggshell head from 12oz can. Big pine aroma, strong and pleasant. Background citrus. Orange color. Somewhat odd taste...some bitter in the finish, but the middle has some astringency and...? Faint cracker, some garlic, and...more pine?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at a bar in the DC Convention Center area. Pours golden orange with a small, super creamy head. Nice lightly floral aroma with a hint of citrus and bready malts. Flavor follows with light citrus, good bite for an APA, light caramel sweetness. Just a hint of weird aftertaste but not offputting or super unpleasant. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Good every day brew for the peeps inside the beltway.
