4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice slightly hazy golden coloured body with a light white head. Aroma of citrus, cascade hops and even more hops. Medium-bodied; Nice hoppy flavour with malt and pine tastes noticeable. Aftertaste shows a perfect finish - a very nice APA...brewpub or not! I sampled this on draught at the Albany Pump Station in Albany, New York on 25 June 2006.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer looks outstanding with a mildly hazy straw color, a nice white head and great lacing on the glass throughout. The beer smells decent with a nice blend of citrus, resin, and a bready smell. The beer tastes great with a decent resin taste with a hint of white pepper and a bready finish...almost acts like a IPA. The mouthfeel is outstanding as the beer is carbonated perfectly and you are left dry and mildly bitter. Overall, a solid APA from an under rated brewer (except the Kick Ass Brown, it has earned its stripes).?

Hops, everywhere. Hoppy, clean aroma. Hops dominant over malt, but pleasantly so. Dark golden color with nice white, lacy head. Pleasant beer overall.

Draught. Poured with a slight head. I couldn't tell any colors due to the darkness of the Country Inn in Krumville. Anyway, it was very malty up fromt with a hoppy finish. A very enjoyable session beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4 ounce sample on tap at the brewpub. Very hoppy aroma with grapefruit, piney aromas with some mild hempy notes as well. I also detect some sweetness in the nose. This is very aromatic and pleasant. Mildly hazy golden/copper color with a small off-white head. Hempy, grapefruity start with cereal graininess in the middle with some mild toastiness later. Some more juicy hops are present in the end. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A honey/amber body under a creamy & holding head. Heavy PNW aroma, similar to Evans’ Kick Ass Brown with Simcoe & Cascades giving a piney, grapefruity presence above mild tea bitters. Sharp, dry, peppery hops dominate the flavor, brought down to earth ever-so-slightly by subdued Vienna malt sweetness. Lemons late. Dry finish. Solid APA. IPA quality.

On tap at brew pub 2/22 & 2/23One of the better pale ales out there. hops abound. much positive to say about this ale, but instead just let me suggest if you are ever in Albany visit Evans Pump Station. Time well spent. there is a passion that is evident in the brew.
