Can @ home via BROsmer, I believe. Thanks BRO! Pours a clear golden appearance with a fluffy white head. Somewhat citrusy, lightly spicy hoppy, a bit bready, toasted malty aroma. Somewhat chewy, big cracker, grainy malty, orange citrusy, herbal hoppy flavor. I probably should drank this a bit more fresh but itís still an easy drinker.

Yellow pour at GABF. Simple but delicious citrusy aroma and wildflower honey. Nice citrusy and floral flavors with the right amount of toasted malt.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2012
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear vibrant golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of pale malts and big herbal hops. The taste is pale malts, intense herbal notes very reminiscent of cumin, a bitter finish and slight lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to Drake: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh piny and grassy hop nose with a light malty sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and clean pale malty sweetness and a zesty herbal hop bitterness before a drier, smooth bittersweet finish. True to style and quite drinkable.

12oz can, which Iím pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Clear golden orange color. Off-white head, with good retention. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light kind of zesty sweet. Good citrusy hop aroma, light bit of pine, with a very clean bready malt bill. Solid, clean satisfying pale ale. Good one to enjoy with my Skyline.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Voting day, and I elect this bottle. Pours very light in color, yellow amber, fizzy, and downright macro-looking. It has a nice fresh airy aroma of light citric hops, and the flavor holds up to the promised. Exceptionally easy to drink, crisp, clean and very well balanced. Nice to see people brewing good íregularí beers and not always pushing for monster ABVs and knockout flavors. (#4816, 11/6/2012)

Bottle. Gold bodied with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is spicy hops, floral hops and soft citrus notes. Taste is toasted malt, grains, floral hops, grass, spicy hops and light buttered biscuit. Body is medium with a bubbly, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more spicy and floral hops, toasted malt, light caramel, grass, citrus and biscuit notes.

On tap at Rustico during the Devilís Backbone NoVA launch. Served in a taster glass. Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. Good spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries a pretty good dose of American hops and a light touch of bread in the background. Flavor is nice and hoppy, though not at all over the top. Body is light. Good hop bitterness. Nice drinkability.
