radio_nowhere (936) - Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Draft into lager glass at Madrones in Frederick, MD. Coppery-golden color with white head. Aroma of piney/citrus hops, malt sweetness and light caramel note. Taste is the aroma adding some fruitiness and breadiness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with dry bitter finish. Overall a nice APA.

BOSSbrewer (2066) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Pours yellow with a thin white head. On tap at Alewife in Baltimore. Nose is pine and citrus. Fairly hoppy. More like an ipa. Very nice. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours golden with a thin white head. Has a bit of pine on the nose. A bit maltier on the tongue than I prefer. Has a slight hop bite on the finish. It’s drinkable but not particularly compelling.

dliberto (203) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2013
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.

MadRobin (2112) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 23, 2013
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
