Being that this is a local brew to me, I am proud to say "The Public" is a buddy of mine.
When I am looking to crack a cold one just because the day was a bitch, this is the beer that I want to wash away the bullshit of DC.
Most times I am drinking from a cold can, and IMHO, I love cans.
First thing that hits me is the smell. Strong citrus and hoppy.
Taste is the same with a perfect balance, refreshing grapefruit, hint of pine, bitter just so, the strong aroma is also still working while drinking.
When I drink this beer I know its there, and it is satisfying like "steak and potatoes".
The only way I could love this more is if they made "tall boy sixers" but its just a dream at this point.
Dying to get to the brewery.

A hazy, dark amber beer with a cream-colored head. Head retention is wonderful and a nice lacing is left behind.
Aromas are a very pleasant blanket of pine and citrus hops, with some bready malt undertones.
Sharp hop bitterness in the taste, but it's not overdone. The citrus and pine are the highlights as was in the nose. All-around a great tasting pale ale that could also be called an IPA.
Mouthfeel has a body I'd call medium. The finish is pretty dry and also hoppy, but has enough malt presence to keep the bitterness from being overbearing.
Overall a fine product that be suitable by itself or paired with a meal. Call me impressed!
Thanks go to Treyliff for the beer!
