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.

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.

"slightly fruity aroma and flavor from the NZ hops, but ample bitterness and citrus for the style as well. Not too shabby all-around from this seemingly hit and miss brewery. "

a true Baltimore original, apparently .. . amber .. mild head, good easy lacing .. mouth has a bit of teen strength .. finish has a bit of it going on but laid back .. i’d drink this if i was a duck who bowls; and i’m picturing a bowler hat. it’s kinda a dream of mine.
