Pours a clear gold on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is faint, hints of citrus and bready grain. Taste is more malt forward, but a nice bitter bite on the back end. Soft carbonation, solid, but could be better.

This is a great pale ale brewed in Norfolk, Virginia. It is named for a deep ocean trench located off of the Virginia coast.

Part of a 6-pack sampler at The Yard House. Very clear amber. Reminds me of a Stella, but with a bitter aftertaste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a small foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was buttery and bready with vague tangy and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, tangy and a bit sour with notes of butter, pepper, cracker, pine and vague fruity hops. Medium length bitter and tangy finish of cracker, pine and fruity hops. Medium body. Meh.

Luvystypotables (607) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Aroma of yeast and hops. Light amber colour, creamy head with fine lacing. Bitter taste with a slight grapefruit undertone. Transient bitter palate.
