Thanks to Crabbicus (awesome trader BTW) for this little doozie!
Poured from a can into my Founders snifter
The pour on this brew is magic. It's color is a burnt orange with 2 fingers of slightly off white head. The beer maintained the head for a while.
Smell was awesome. Slight citrus, malt, maybe some burnt toffee in there. Smells fantastic!
The taste was incredible! Latly on pale ales it seems the trend is going towards grapefruit. This had some citrus notes, but not front and center. I do love lots of grapefruit forward pale ales, but this one is refreshing. Balanced, and yet subtle in the taste. Nothing screamed that it was the star. Bravo DC Brau! This is a winner! When I think of how a beer should be, this is it. Not overly hopped, not to bitter, not to dry. A perfect drinking beer.
The mouthfeel on this is great. Very creamy (saying this makes me chuckle). It's light, but not watery. This is f'ing fantastic!
Overall: I'm a fan. What more can I say? This is superb. I can't recommend this beer enough! Go get some or trade for it. I think you'll enjoy it!

Purchased a 6 pack from whole foods in the Georgetown area of d.c. Poured into pint glass
Appearance- great amber, slightly hazy, good lingering lacing on sides and a finger width head
Smell-American citrus hops stand out, what I come to expect from an apa
Taste- pine, citrus fruit, has that great dank hop taste with a bite that persists through the finish
Mouthfeel- great carb, adds body
Overall- I would drink this again, it's everything I expect from a modern apa, hops, hops and hops, with the malt bill to back it up. Easy to drink and very well put together.
