[Draft at the Bowie location] An amber beer with a thin dense off-white head. The aroma is nicely hoppy with notes of grapefruit - which leads the thoughts towards Cascade, but also a light caramel note. The flavor is nice with a good presence of aroma hops, slight notes of toffee, and a fine delicate bitter finish. I also had this on nitro, which made the aroma weaker and the mouthfeel more smooth.

GBBF. Cask. Served as ’Double Dry Hopped Venom Pale Ale’. Hazy amber beer, respectable tan head. Low carbonation smooth palate. Nice oaky vanilla Sorachi Ace - a little lemon. Mild toffee malt backbone. Light dry finish. Really nice beer - the Sorachi Ace makes it tastes oak aged.

Clear amber body. Aroma is medium grapefruit hoppy, and medium sweet. Taste is a solid wall of grapefruit that never becomes overbearing. Light sweetness, finishing with a good grapefruit kick. Medium body. Simple, straightforward, and yummy.

Words: Brewpub Anaopolis

clear amber, creamy off white head, solid lace, big sweet caramel malt and fresh citrus hop aroma, creamy body, lots of citrus hop flavor with a bitter bite, touch of sweet caramel malt for balance, almost as good as the nitro version with the aparance and body but still the rough edges of the draft
