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.

MrChopin (2927) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
hazy tangerine, puffy white head, small bubbled. Nose is bright, mango and tangerine. Very bright, no malt balance. Slight aspirin in flavor, caramel malt abundance but enough orange to balance. Sticky despite 5%.

On draft. Complex aroma - this seems to be a consistent strong point of this brewery - lemon peel, slight malt, earthiness, certainly some cannabis. Flavors fit the same bill. Quite refreshing, given the hop-forward flavor. I may be overrating this because it’s local and cool, but whatever. Distinctive, well-brewed beer that the community should be proud to represent.

Let down! No body, no complexity. A let down. I regretted getting a 22 oz. instead of a smaller taste. Never again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12oz can at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a clear orange with some frothy, white head. Nose is earthy, lemon, pithy, vinous, some white grape. Flavor is nice, herbal, chive, scallion, malt, orange, honey, spicy onion. Full, herbal finish. Very nice. I would love to get sixers of this in DC.

On tap at the brewery tasting room. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Crisp grain and bright hops. Medium bodied, light sweetness and a good amount I’d crisp malt. Nice clean bitterness into the finish. Long lingering bitter. Tasty and easy drinking.
