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!

I really liked the aroma of this beer. It passes the eye test as well. It was the overall refreshing flavor that got me to give this beer such a high rating. Excellent stuff.

jgb9348 (4818) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Nice crisp amber coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of bright grapefruit, piney and resinous hops - a lot of them and a touch of malt. Medium-bodied; Strong herbaceous hop flavour at first with some perceived metallic and earthy notes along with a lot of caramel and sweet notes at the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of hop bitterness with grapefruit and piney notes clearly winning out. Overall, a very potent hop presence with a good malt backbone and some nice complex flavours - much more hops than I was expecting and definitely one of the best ’ambers’ I’ve had in a while. I feel like this is an APA, but if it stays in this category - find one, because it is a great beer for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce can after a hockey game in Arlington, Virginia on 19-March-2014 - Thanks JP!
