Pour is amber and hazy like honey. Large tight bubble head that is off white to cream in color. Aroma is lite but very hop forward. When you take a drink the first thing you will note is the texture witch is very dry and fizzy/carbonated then you get hit with hops and they stay on the palate like pepper. I love hops but if you do not this is the wrong beer for you.

Rated from old notes. Dark gold, strong, lot and lots of hops but still well balanced.

"Well balanced, but still more hop forward (and more flavorful) than many apa’s out there. bright citrus hops in the aroma and flavor, medium bitterness, and a sturdy caramel malt backbone...maybe a hint of nut? solid pale ale."

Butters (4058) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Clear light golden pour with MASSIVE billowing pillowtop head. Extremely floral nose with just a hint of citrusy/funky yeast. that shows up more on the flavor. Bottle was about 6 months old, but the hops had really faded quite a bit. Really reminds me kinda of an Orval with the funkiness. Not unenjoyable though.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
From notes at bier baron in dc. A: straw ale with brilliant clarity. White and sud like foam leave sheets of lacing. S: sweet, lite and with lots of floral notes. I keep sniffing this one. T: again with sweet notes, converge into the ever-present grains and finishes with a good bitter jab at the end. I get jasmine on the finish. Excellent. M: med to lo body (little heavy for the style but I like) and low carb. Slick finish. O: might be my new favorite domestic pils. Really nice beer. Serving type: on-tap 06-23-2011

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
I must be missing something here, because I taste nothing close to a 95 worthy rating. Extravagant fluffy head, burnt orange color, aroma of pine and earth tones. Not much of a malt presence, nor is the hop flavor that enjoyable. Soapy and thin.

Shanebrews (293) - Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
This is good. It is an American IPA, displaying the hop character of a beer from the Pacific Northwest, yet in balance with a discernible malt presence. It is bitter but balanced, refreshing, and pairs with food with great versatility.

rumproasts (5318) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2013
bottle. Deep golden with two finger head. This is intensely hoppy for a pale. I suspect that’s due to the whole cone hops. Light malt body, and nice piney bitterness.

Bottle->shaker. Light amber with huge frothy offwhite head. Very hop-forward with pine and citrus. Lasting bitter finish. Good.

May 2010. I’ve had this beer several times when I can find it around town. Orange amber color with a nice white head. Pine, hops, citrus, spice and floral aromas. Very nice and balanced APA.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a very hazy amber color with a frothy light tan head. Aroma is quite citrusy, almost resembling a lemon pine sol. Flavor is a well balanced light caramel sweetness and citrusy bitterness. Body is light to medium with a light lingering bitterness. Wonderful pale ale.
