Poured on-tap at the Pump Station, the beer was served in a shaker pint. The beer is a hazy, orange-yellow coloring with a filmy, clingy, white head that sits a solid inch on top. Bright beer all over. Nose of lemon and orange citrus blend, with a biscuit backbone. Flavors of toast, with a citrus sweet blend and bitter hops overtone. Great lacing along the glass as you drink. Smooth and light in mouth. Slightly bitter, roasty aftertaste with a filmy, slightly linger finish. Decent brew.

This is a wonderful, wonderful American Pale Ale. Among the very best ever consumed and certainly the best in the greater Albany area. Wonderful, balanced production of this type.

A: reddish gold. Thin head, average lacing.

S: Wonderful, wonderful - smells like an IPA - floral, hops, some reserved malt notes.

T: Fantastic smooth hops, fading into a sublime understated prolonged malt note. Beautifully balanced alcohol backdrop. One of The Best Pale Ales I have ever had, right alongside the John Durgin Pale Ale by Harpoon.

M: Creamy smooth, full, nice carbonation.

O: One of the best American Pale Ales available on tap. Fresh, balanced, thirst quenching. This is one mighty fine American Pale Ale. Their IPA is also outstanding. Highly Recommended.

A - Pours a clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head faded down to a thin ring leaving behind some lacing in the process.

S - The aroma is full of citrus hop and sweet malt. There is lots of grapefruit and lemon aromas coming off the beer,

T - Starts off with some nice sweet caramel malt and some citrus hop flavor and bitterness. Through the middle stronger bitterness as well as some spices and lemon flavors come through. The finish is a mix of caramel flavor and grapefruit hops and bitterness that linger nicely.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels very smooth and crisp. The finish is a nice mix of some slightly sweet flavors and some bitterness.

D - Very drinkable. The hop and malt balance is really nice with a good level of bitterness. The hop profile is really nice.

I had this on tap at the brewpub. It was darker than your standard American pale ale, amber colored with a decent off-white foam. Light citrus character and noticeable caramel malt in the nose. It tastes milder than it smells, and less hoppy than the fantastic Quackenbush Blond from the same brewpub. Medium carbonation, easy pounding but not flavorful enough to choose over the others from CH Evans.
