4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got some of this on growler tap at Premier in Buffalo, i think this is awesome that this brewery is here in Buffalo, NY. Off the jump, this beer smells amazing, lots of fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit notes. It poors a light golden yellow, and has a nice medium palate with a nice bitterness to it. Taste is nice with some good fruit notes, light to medium bitterness and sweet. Overall this is a nice ipa and a good beer alltogether. Just found out about this brewery and i like it already, good stuff!

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: This one has a mostly citrus hop aroma, some grapefruit, orange, lemon, etc
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden orange color with a white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of citrus, some light sweetness, and plenty of hop
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, some chewiness, and a fairly lengthy finish
These guys make a quite tasty IPA. You really can’t go wrong with this one. I found it to be a drinkable and enjoyable example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Multiple samples at the nano-brewery. Yellow bodied and some head. Very lacy. 50-60 IBU and felt higher. Frangrant. Galaxy and Simcoe. Would be a good cask, as overcarbonated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: An explosive fruity blonde IPA of superior quality.
How: Tap at Tap-NY festival 2013.
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The highly aromatic hoppy nose is shoving fresh fruits up your nostrils. In mouth the body is very full but not heavy with a generous carbonation. Taste is pleasant semi-sweet chewy pale malts with a whole lot of fresh and vibrant citrusy and tropical fruits. A refreshing bitterness of medium intensity. Basically this is a pretty standard fruity American IPA, except that this one does it better than most with its very bright fruity character and the overall freshness sensation from both the malts and the hops. I happen to know one of the brewer of Community Beer Works, he seems very happy with his new job and it allows him to drink beer on the side, something I could never do, my drinking hole is in the front of my face.
