On draught at Washington Hilton. Pours a dense amber color with a long lasting white lace and head. Big hoppy aroma. Medium body. Mild maltiness with dominating hop flavor balance and moderate but solid bitterness. Cleaner than most New England IPAs and less citrusy than most West Coast IPAs. Not bad. thornecb (5917) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Pours deep dark gold into a shaker. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Pine and grapefruit aromas. Well balanced with sweet caramel upfront turning to pine and citrus in the lasting bitter finish. jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Solid IPA. Not much else to say about it. Made in DC, so that’s pretty cool. As far as I can tell, it’s one of 3 breweries in DC, so it’s nice to see they can make a decent beer to style. Definitely the AMERICAN style of IPA. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Can from a friend. Nice amber pour with a cream head. Nose I lightly grapefruit, melon, tropical, and clightly floral. Very smooth on the palate, florals and tropical fruits, backed with a light sweetness and a very nice finish.

Hazy amber pour strong piney hop aroma. Fizzy and not too heavy. Probably the best canned ipa I’ve ever had. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
This gets my DC rating back, thank you very much. Also keeps with the can thing I have going on today. Pours a medium hazy orange amber, good head. Failed to remember that just because it comes from a can, it doesn’t mean there can’t be crap at the bottom. So I have a huge pile of "extras" floating around in here. Grapefruit and citrus and pine aroma, slight caramel. Flavor matches the aroma. A very solid IPA. Nicely done. Earns the standard "solid IPA score" of 3.8. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Freshly tapped at PPGT. Unfiltered orange copper body. Steady off-white/beige head. Dry and toasty, quite a nice IPA. Steady dry hop character, bold and full bodied. Well balanced. Filling, rich, well done. cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Can at home... Light hazy amber... Bubbly off white head... Soft zezty orange peach nose... Dry toffee roast... Big sweet passion fruit... Zezty tart... Big grapefruit... Drying... McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Vibrant orange, sandy ringed head. Powerful pine nose. Well worn up front malt with a sturdy bitter platform, sultry sweetness. Lip tingling grapefruit finish. Tight hop burn in the linger. Maybe too much of a hoppy singe too early on, thread of steely bitter.
