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 Duckpinóa true Baltimore original.

Pint on tap at Maxís. 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 Iím a while, Iím 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 itís pleasant enough. It tastes pretty darn good.

Draft at the brewery - thanks to my girlfriend. Poured a golden copper color with a small white head. Aroma was malts, bready notes. Flavor was some herbal hop notes, some light floral character, malt and yeast. Kind of an earthy finish, unfortunately not as clean as I was hoping it would be. Neither of us were big fans of this one.

In a can. Very drinkable. A bit less bitter then Dales Pale Ale. Would recommend for everyday drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, thanks to nimbleprop. Very pure golden pour with a finger of eggshell head. Bubbly and fizzy. Resin and florals make up the brunt of the nose and a light bready malt rounds it out. Tastes of dirty florals, some herbals, bready malt, and noticeable yeast. A light flaw in the finish, best described as pvc plastic. Lingering florals do a decent job of muting this, but itís still there. Neat, clean looking can though.

On tap at Adega Wine Cellars & Cafe in Silver Spring, MD. Clear, medium amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Hoppy aroma of pineapple, fruity hops and caramel. Taste of fruity hops, pineapple, citrus, caramel, tropical fruit more hops. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
