COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This generously hopped pale ale is a strike in your mouth! Brewed with lots of Pacific Northwest & New Zealand hops this beer is ten frames of big citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavor. A strong malt backbone rounds it out and makes this pale ale a delight for the senses. The pins may be small but the flavor is huge! In our town, we roll Duckpin—a true Baltimore original.

Draft at Great Sage. Light golden, thin white head and a bit of lacing. Good hop fragrance, orange peel and Forrest after it rains. Mostly pine resin with a hint of citrus on the palate. A bit thin, with dry bitter finish... Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint on tap at Max’s. Lightly hazy golden with a lasting ring of cream. Aroma is citrus, resin and caramel. Flavors of caramel, resin, toast and orange-grapefruit. Light-medium body is mostly smooth with a medium carbonation and well balanced with a dry finish.

Tastes a little better than rated for me but this was just the random after work beer I had around the corner from work. It ended up good though. Nice citrus hips profile here. Pours orange with decent head and lacing. Average bitter finish, average carbonation. Can.

Received this beer in a great trade with DeutschesBier.. Thanks a bunch Clint!! Glad we crossed paths!! Pours fairly clear straw golden ... short lived white head leaves pretty good lacing. Big citrus for a standard pale ale with a lightly balanced pale malt presence... Smells great. Flavor mirrors the nose with an extremely drinkable well balanced pale ale... nice citrus and perfect bitterness. Body is a good light/medium... carbonation is light/medium... very quaffable. Thanks again to Clint for a great trade!!

Can thanks to a trade! Pours a clear deep yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of grain and bread with grassy hops coming through. Flavor is similar with lots of grass and grains with a bit of a sweet bread note.

First review I’m a while, I’m gonna be rusty. Nice medium aroma; grassy, relatively complex. Dark yellow color, clear, small head, great lacing. Good taste, nicely balanced, nothing particularly sticks out, but it’s pleasant enough. It tastes pretty darn good.
