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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
