Draft at the brewpub. Clear amberish pour, sticky white head. Citrusy hops, light tropical fruit, grapefruit, and background of caramel malt and bread. Nice pale, one of the better offerings.

(En fût à la brasserie): Biscuit sablé mouillé, ramolli dans un jus d’agrumes. Plus sucré qu’houblonné, plus vers le miel que le caramel, finale molle sans attrait mémorable.

alexanderj (3542) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at NBBC. The best pale ale I have had in a while. Color was dark gold with an off white head. Aroma was nice with a good amount of citrus and flowers. Flavor was nicely balanced with flowers and citrus again in the finish. Nicely hopped for the style, and the dry hopping was not that pronounced. Sessionable and good.

DarkElf (3059) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 21, 2005
(Draft: Newport Beach Brewing Company in Newport Beach, CA) This is beer number 3 at this place, and this beer is better than the first two I tried. It couldn’t possibly get worse. This has a fairly light hops flavor, a bit citrusy, only mildly bitter for an IPA, but there’s so little maltiness that the hops jumps out. Mild sweetness. Lightly hoppy and mildly sweet nose. Clean, crisp palate, light to medium in body. Light golden color. Small white head fades quickly to a spotty film. Decidedly average for an IPA. Next!

On draft at NBBC. This is a nicely done APA. It hits you with a great hoppy aroma, and backs it up with a good flavor. This was very solid.

Draft at the brewpub.
Light copper pour with a fizzy white head. Hops are very present in this beer, aroma and flavor, very nice for a pale ale. Flavor lingered on the tongue for quite a bit, overall very good and very drinkable.

Light malt at the tip turns to an impressive citric second half. Rounds out with a well balanced bitter/sweet finish.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Draft at the brewpub The APA poured a clear light gold color with a small off white head and lacing. The aroma was more citrus than malt. The overall taste was good but could have more hop flavor. The ale had a light body and average carbonation. In the back, hop bitterness takes hold, inducing a lasting dry swallow. This a special place with above average beer.
