750 mL bottle from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma of tangerine and wet grass. Taste is of damp pale malt with citrus and pine. Lingering bitter finish. Decent but I have had better from this brewery.

$7.79 bomber, Wine Warehouse. Great name. Pours a murky brown with a nice frothy beige head. Smells of peach, pine, citrus, bubblegum. Taste is bubblegum, urinal cake, pine, citrus, roasted malt... very interesting. Reminds me of a Great Lakes beer, but I donít have them near me to compare.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Sample at the DBLDP on 08/31/2014. Pours a hazy amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of yeast, malt and fruity hops. Light-bodied with flavors of tropical fruit, yeast and earthy malt.. The finish is fruity with a citrus and yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Thanks Grant. One of the better belgian pales Iíve had in recent memory. Yeasty esters and and citrus hops smell beneath the large foamy head. Taste is nice citrus, belgian yeast with a semi dry finish. Could drink quite a bit of this.

Roser (34) - Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Appearance- hazy, opaque, honey, orange, amber. Nice big foamy bone white head that remained for a good while. Superb lacing. Smell- clean, spice, clove, malt, Belgian yeast aroma. Taste- bitter, spicy, (slight) sour citrus bite. Tangy. Mouthfeel- creamy, medium body, well balanced. Overall- an excellent beer! A very good U.S. version of a Belgian pale. Highly recommend. Cheers!

Emeister84 (1032) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Aromas of citrus, some pine, mild fruit, mild spice. Red with a mostly lasting off-white head. Caramelly malts, bitter citrusy and piney hops, a subtle hint of Belgian esters and spice at the end. Light-medium bodied. Very much an American pale ale with a touch of Belgian influence.

cloudy amber color; floral hop aroma; a good deal of bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor with a medium bodied malt base and a touch of fruity Belgian yeast; nice, bitter, hoppy finish; a very enjoyable beer

A lot hoppier of a BPA than I was expecting. Great blend of hops with a nice dry finish. As you let it sit some clove spice, slight pilsner flavor, and a little pine comes through. Different, but good for dry hop fans.
