I recently rediscovered this beer, as it is readily available in Northern Virginia, but I had not sampled it for a few years. I don't know if I didn't give it a sufficient evaluation previously, if the recipe has been tweaked, or maybe my palate has shifted. Regardless, Grateful Pale Ale has become one of my go to selections. It has a really bright nose and despite its very sessionable ABV level, the taste holds up and isn't thin like a few of its IPA cousins offered by other breweries. Very easy drinking, very balanced and overall one that deserves recognition and recommendation.

Clear golden color with average head and really nice, clingy lacing. Aroma is hoppy and some citrus, very refreshing. Taste is pine hops, resin, grapefruit, bread malt. Feels great on the palate and a nice sessionable ale. Love the hops !!
