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!

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Growler shared by a traveling HSC member. The beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium fluffy beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild citrusy hops. Light body with a somewhat crisp character and flavors of sweet malt, caramel and hops. The finish is citrusy with a short mildly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2012
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)

Flavor was spot on, light caramel, some chewy grain and then plenty of hops, blood orange, grass, dried lemon peel, flower petals. Medium bodied, lightly zesty, refreshing finish. Very nice session ale.

jgb9348 (4770) - 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!
