3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery. Very good american pale. Aggressive hop aroma and taste make this interesting but it is not overly strong to be like an IPA. One of my favorites at Franklin’s.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Franklins, Hyattsville on 14 July 2006 (noted at 6.0%). Unusual to find two different APAs on tap at a brewpub at the same time. Hazy amber colour. Good strong hop presence. Big on grapefruity Cascade. Another good APA. The hops are a bit more aggressive than in the Twisted Turtle but there is less of a malt backbone. Honours even.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy copper color with a large creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Faint aroma of citrus hops. The taste is wretched. Big herbal and citrus hops. Way over-hopped. A chemical note. No balance whatsoever. Medium bodied. Looks decent, but other than that I could barely manage a few sips.

Sampler at brewpub. Pours clear light copper with off-white head. Aromas of citrusy american hops, caramel, and english malts. Flavors of hops, some citrus, caramel, and english malts. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Decent pale and one of the better beers on tap.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity pour from the friday firkin. Cloudy orange with a pillowy white head. Huge aroma of hops and grapefruit. Flavor is mostly grapefruit and citrus hops. Much like drinking grapefruit juice, only not as bitter. Very smooth with a nice pale malt backbone. Quite drinkable.
