COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American-style pale ale. Tons of Cascade hops give it assertive bitterness, with great aroma and fresh hop flavor.

Emeister84 (936) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Aromas of citrus fruit and bread. Clear red, with quickly diminishing, white head. Lightly sweet, with some berry flavors, but well-balanced with the hops. Medium-full body, with average carbonation, and a long, bitter finish with some toast.

Yeasty tea nose. Crystal clear amber, thin head but enduring. Tea and dried leaves, very little fruitiness. Medium body. APA or amber? If the lattr itís a dwcent example. Not very hoppy.

bartlebier (1651) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(2012 US backlog, recollected in abstinent tranquility). Full pint drafts @source, Cíville VA 14/09/2012. Fresh and pleasant-for-sessioning brewpub APA, with a certain direct Cascade lustre on the nose, decently repeated in the flavour, and malts taking obvious second stage. Nothing spectacular, more than serviceable after strolling in the late VA sun.

eaglefan538 (2886) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 3, 2013
A ho hum average pale ale, perhaps a tad below average, really. Poured the amber color with a white type head, good lacing. The aroma was citrus and caramel. Flavor followed, not nearly as bitter as I was hoping, residual sweetness present too? Grainy. Mouthfeel moderate in body and carbonation.

tia (887) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Tap. Dark golden with thin white head. Smells a tad rubbery and like rye. Flavor rubbery, grainy, then sweet and almost dry. Light dry finish, graininess persists.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear golden color. Good thin white head, leaves impressive lace. Grassy hops. Lighter, smooth carbonation, dry finish. Lightly bitter. Respectable pale.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Draft. Pours amber gold with a white head. Light citric hoppy aroma with a pale malty base. The flavor has citric and floral hops and light pale and sweet malts. Not bad.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2012
On tap at brewery. Poured a translucent bronze color with a small white head. Aroma is fresh hops, with a light sweet malt backing. Very much like a standard brew-pub APA. Not that this is a bad thing, I really enjoyed it and all itís "unrefined" fresh glory.

Beer with the same name as my best friend from law school the night of the bar exam--certainly hard to forget. On tap in late July 2009. Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate amber color with a nice off white head and some rings of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some fairly-strong citrus notes with a bit of pale malt in the background. The taste is slightly bitter with some nice hop flavors and a bit of malt. Good body and carbonation with a nice level of bitterness. Drinks quite well overall and was part of a nice intro to this brewery. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-26-2010
