Draft 1Q at Victory. Pours hazy dark straw with 1-f ow head. Nose is piney hops, pale malt, tangerine, some peppery notes, and a hoppy, piney, crisp fllavor with well integrated pale malt and slight late funk. Well balanced and a nice beer that I hope they continue to male and even bottle.

Tap at Victory. Poured a light amber with a medium, white head that had excellent retention and excellent lace. Very good hoppy APA nose. Grassy hops abounding with some perfume and a little corn. Taste is oatmeal, buttery malt-forward with a dry, bitter, grassy hop aftertaste that is long and drying. Would be a killer session beer. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010

Cask, at brewpub. Pours a cloudy light copper with a nice creamy cask conditioned light beige head. Nice fresh hoppy nose, grassy and floral with some light caramel malt below. The flavor is floral and leafy hops with just enough toasty and lightly caramel malt. Nice lightly yeasty undertone. Lingering light bitterness. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with perfect cask conditioning. Served at the perfect temp. Very nice, super fresh and perfectly hopped.
