On tap at Maryland Microbrewery Festival. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Semi-sweet, smooth beer that is real drinkable. I like it

BPA pours clear with a finger of foam. Huge dry-hop aroma from the glass. Beer drinks with much less bitterness than than you’d think after getting the aroma. Light-bodied, hop forward APA. Easy drinking.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear copper color. A fluffy, off-white head of about two fingers is formed, and is slow to fade away. Nice lacing is left on the glass. S: This is more along the lines of a piney/floral pale ale than a citrusy one, but even against my preferences, it works well. Sweet, nutty malts with a bit of floral hops stand out at first, before turning more in favor of the hops. Notes of butterscotch and black pepper help to round out the aroma. T: There’s a great maltiness on the opening flavors which set it apart from other pales. It’s very well incorporated into the piny hop finish - and has a nuttiness to it most brown ales would kill for. Bitterness is high without being extreme. It’s really well balanced, and not in that insipid manner most ’balanced’ IPAs are, either. M: At first, I wonder if the sweet malts will bother me, but they’re nicely cleaned up on the crisp, dry finish. A bitter linger of hop oils accumulate. General drinkability is excellent, too. O: I half expected some gimmicky, mediocre pale ale more interested in B’more pride than actually being a good beer. I was wrong. Compared to the last beer I had before this (a session IPA brewed with highfalutin’ Simcoe and Citra hops - I won’t say which brewery, but it sucked ass), this is a damn revelation. These guys brewed a solid pale ale without resorting to trendy hops: Full Tilt could be a brewery to watch in the next few years.

On tap 6 oz. sampler at The Bistro in Old Line Wine in Beltsville, MD. Clear, bright orange-amber with a fine off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus, syrupy fruit, caramel and pine. Taste of pine, fruit, caramel, citrus and floral hops. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden amber color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts, citrus, and pine. Taste of lemon and grapefruit rind, and toasted malt.

hampale (41) - Jaffrey, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Purchased a single bottle at State Line Liquors while traveling through MD. Wish I’d bought a 6-pack as my taste buds tell me that it’s a Pale Ale of which Baltimore should be proud. Unusually attractive aroma primarily of a piney/citrus hop nature. Subdued hoppy flavor with a crisp and dry finish. Nice lingering bitterness on the palate. One of the better Pale Ales I’ve tried in quite some time.

12 oz. Bottle. Amber color with a short white head. Nice aromas of pine and hops. Good body and complexity and a lot of hops on the finish. Great beer.

Bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, and resin hops with biscuit and straw malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

I have to believe this is better than the sample I had. Draft: decent looking but seemed oddly out of balance and was thin. These days if it’s not a great APA you may as well not make it. I’ll give it another try if i get the chance.
