3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the downtown brewpub. Pours a clear deep orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Light body with flavors of herbal hops, roast malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pours a nice dark amber color, just a decent amount of off-white head. Pine and bread on the nose. Grassy, piney, and bready on the palate.

Taster on tap at GTMW. Totally hazy orange color, kind of vibrant. Thin off-white khaki head. Leaves decent thicker lace. Impressive, big grapefruity kind of creme citrus hop aroma up front. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Lightly spicy, some caramel malt, but flavor is impressively hop-forward. Medium to bigger body, kind of slick. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Solid hoppier pale ale, with a bigger malt base too. Drinks like 6.5% plus, bordering on IPA territory. Better than expected.

(US 09/2012 backlog recollected in abstinence). Fliptop@Random burger/giant brat place in Georgetown, DC. Looks plain and watery, amber with a golden hue, but provided a fair sessional balance of everything you need in an APA: a subtle floral touch, some caramel malt, gentle lingering Cascade citrus rind bitterness. Quick drinker, ideal with and coincidentally appropriate to the same home state as my very salty "brat".
