We start with a mellow malt base to showcase the hops against a lightly grainy sweetness. Zeus, Centennial and Zythos hops are used in the boil and again in dry hopping to maximize hop aroma and flavor. The result is a superbly drinkable Pale Ale loaded with zest, pine, and a touch of citrus.

Shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured an okay looking hazy dark golden/amber body with a small off white head. Aroma of grains, citrus rinds, yellow grapefruit, bread crusts and some dry hop cones. Medium bodied with average carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor isnít quite as good as the aroma with notes of crusty grains, cereal, dry citrus rinds. Not bad.

Growler from the brewery. Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is bright and zesty. Lean malts with a hint of grassy/zesty hops. Peppery and fresh with a lingering bitterness. Clean and slightly crackery with a bit of lemon and some kiwi-like character. Solid pale ale.

I love gooooold.... Cloudy gold that is, small white cap and casky carbonation, ooh sneaky sexy mofos. Immediately pleasant and quaffably drinkable with a refreshing-slash-bracing palate of clean malt fruit sweetness and hop dryness, very solid Buffalo dudes. Herbal and grassy and yet not annoying. Also the cheapest thing on the menu, being very good besides an alternative to some beer you came in early for because itís rare. Relax hombre. Itís all good. Also the aroma is fresh and pleasantly meadow sweet. I mean it.

Location: Sampled at TapNY, 4/26/14

Aroma: The nose is clean and light hoppy, some grapefruit/citrus hops, and pale malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a thin head and scattered lace
Flavor: It is mid-sweet balanced by a clean bitterness, similar to the nose component-wise
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a clean mouthfeel, and a bit of dryness on the finish
Overall Impression: I found this to be a solid, though kind of light example of an APA. Wasnít quite as good as the beers I remember from Community Beer Works at Tap in 2013.

On tap at the Blue Monk last night after taking Kara and Andy to dinner at the Liberty Hound, they bought me a beer at the Blue Monk. They were of course out of the Evil Twin Imperial Stout that they are still advertizing on their website. This was good for itís style. Plenty of hops in the aroma and in the flavor. Very light and drinkable.

Growler at CGBD. Pours amber with a white head. Light sweet malts, fruity hops, and light citric notes. Fresh and pretty damn good.

Pint at Blue Monk on 7/7/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Malty nose with notes of lemon and biscuit. Malty flavor at first, turning to slight citrus and pine before a grassy and biscuity finish. Nice APA.

My 4900th rating! Bottle [1L] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Itís fitting that a Community Beer Works beer would be a milestone as I was an excited Kickstarter donor for them. Iím thrilled to be drinking their beer now. Pours a murky, deep yellow-gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Aroma: Yeah, hops! Lots of resiny, citrusy and floral hops. Flavour is also quite hoppy -- catty, citrusy and resiny, and with a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied. Very good stuff, well done fellas!
