3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 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.

Draft Cap Ale Innsbrook. Medium orange amber, decent head. Hoppy aroma, citric in character, pine and grapefruit. Caramel accented malt backbone, hop emphasis on the finish, matches the nose. Definitely in the APA family way more than in the ambers. Quite nice.

Aromas of citrus fruit, floral hops, and bread. Clear amber with a lasting, off-white head. Predominant bitterness, but a nicely balanced APA. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a lasting, citrusy, bitter finish.

Draft at Capital Ale House downtown. Pours amber with an inch of white foam that leaves a bit of lacing. Some pine presence on the nose. Big hop flavor on the tongue and the finish lingers a bit. Nice!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the DoG Street Pub. Deep, dark copper, average-looking American beer. It has a wickedly hoppy nose, rife with wet pine forest aromas. Drinks with a metallic copper character, and tangy, piney hops. Bit on the thin side, and finishing with a bit of cloying tartness. (#4869, 12/24/2012)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Capital Ale, 11/17/12
Aroma: The nose citrus fruit, some pine, caramel, malts, and bread
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color, with a white head, and some sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, with caramel and grains, and light-mid hoppy, with fruit and pine notes
Palate: This one has a medium body, with a clean feel, and a nice, dry finish on the mouth
Nice stuff, that I thought worked rather well. Drinks nicely. This was a nice first beer to try from Wild Wolf, and quite sessionable.
