At Snallygaster. What a fresh-hop pale ale should be: big pine resin flavors that last and last through the malts. I don’t think of DBB as excelling at these hyper American styles, but this is a winner.

Draft at the brewery in Roseland. The ale poured a clear Amber color with an off white creamy foamy head with lacing. The aroma of cascade hop citrus greets you. Nice pale malt aroma as well. The ale has amedium body with average carbonation. The cascade hops from Virginia grown Whipple Creek Farm contributes bittering citrus in the taste. The finish has some lingering bitterness. Nicely brewed. DB has expanded greatly since my last visit. IBU 56/ABV 5.9%

Keg @ Sedona. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is slightly subdued. Some resin, marmalade, tree bark. The taste is hugely bitter. Wow, much more assertive than the aroma suggests. Green shoots, biomass, resinous pine. Medium body, fine carb. Bizarre proportions on this.
