COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This generously hopped pale ale is a strike in your mouth! Brewed with lots of Pacific Northwest & New Zealand hops this beer is ten frames of big citrus and tropical fruit aroma and flavor. A strong malt backbone rounds it out and makes this pale ale a delight for the senses. The pins may be small but the flavor is huge! In our town, we roll Duckpin—a true Baltimore original.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 Good APA. Poured from growler. Nice citrus on the nose. Strong grapefruit taste, and the hops are very present. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at a bar in Falls Church, VA 2/12/2017. Amber in colour, with a tight, white, head. Citrus hops, some biscuity malts, a touch of pineapple and tangerine fruit, leading to a dryish finish. Good.

12oz can at Camden yards. Clear golden orange pour with a frothy, dissipating white head. Fresh citrus nose with flavors of orange, tangerine, bread dough, caramel, pale malt. Smooth texture and a light, clean finish. Very drinkable.

Fine pale ale. Hops are consistent in the body and the finish. Bitter enough but flavorful.

A nice, simple, hoppy, straightforward IPA. Lemon and orange, plenty of citrus, a nice light caramel backing malt. Flavorful and quenching.

hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Draft... Pours clear and golden with an amber tint and a small, creamy, white head. The aroma features melons and tropical fruits with a mild citrusy undertone. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The flavor is lightly fruity and moderately bitter. Finishes very raspy and dry.

3.7
brownaler (742) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bold hop profile and a bit of Crystal malt within the body. Seems more like a session IPA than a pale ale. Not enough malt.

3.3
BeerdedDave (2010) - Beckley, USA - DEC 28, 2016
clear amber color; light, floral, citrusy hop aroma; light citrusy hop flavor; very light malt base
