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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2013
12oz can: pours a clear deep golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted pale malty nose with fresh resiny citrus hops. Starts with good fullness and a clean malty sweetness well balanced with juicy hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very well hopped and quite drinkable.

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.

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.

Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at Union. Served in a Union sampler glass. Pours a clear golden color. Nose is faintly hoppy with light citrus notes, a bit of tropical character, and some grain. Flavor is a bit grainy with moderate bitterness. Not quite enough hop flavor for me, but this would be a nice introductory pale.

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.

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.
