COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American Pale Ale with a ton of Citra, Columbus and Cascade hops. Deep amber in color with an extremely well rounded hop and malt character. This beer gives hop heads what they are looking for without wrecking your palate; yet it is sufficiently balanced which is pleasing to many hop-timid beer drinkers. The finish is slightly dry and refreshing to the last drop. This beer will not disappoint!

Serving: Can at Leesburg Brewing Company. It pours a dark red color with a small off white head. The nose has little to offer outside a slight toasted note. The flavor has lots of toasted malt and even a hint of nuttiness. The bitterness is strong but there is no flavor addition from the hops, just an almost acridic bitterness. Seems like a borderline brown with too much bittering hops to me. Not worth seeking out.

Can. Pours a clean reddish amber with medium off-white head and soapy lace. Nose of roasted malt, caramel, piney hops. Medium body, lots of roasted malt, medium bitterness. Don’t get any citra. Decent

From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Can. Amber pour with a small white head. The nose is big caramel and PNW woody hops. Plenty of pine. The taste is more caramel and resinous hop bitterness. A bit toasty. Legitimately quite bitter on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation.

Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Hoppy some weird foretaste.

In a can. Unusually bitter for an APA (grapefruit sans sweetness), then hops and the bitter returns at the finish. Pleasantly different.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax six pack of cans: Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is piny hops, citrus hops, and a wee bit of malt. Taste is quite bitter for an amber. Hops make this a rather dry sipper. Plenty of hop aftertaste. Good, but not as sessionable as I hoped that it would be, but then again, it is a pretty fierce looking can.

Can from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours amber-brown, clearm crisp. Pinkish-tan head. Smells of bitter grapefruit and pine. Nice bite of grapefruit, orange peel, pine, and a hefty malt.

Can into a tulip. The thing that really brings the score down here is the appearance. They want this to be a pale ale, and while the taste and aroma is there, the look is still a deep amber. If I ordered this at a bar expecting a pale ale and this showed up i’d immediately think i got the wrong beer. That being said, the aroma and taste are both great mixes of caramel malts, citrus and pine hops with a lot of tropical fruits on the palate thanks to the citra.
