Cool beer, I had a pint at Draught 55 in Midtown East. It has a big hop character of what I'd consider old-school American craft hops, as in, Cascade and it's early APA friends. It has more citrus than an English IPA, but there's still a lot of grassy spice that at first made me wonder if this was a more of an American-English hybrid—especially with the smooth malty backbone. While there's nothing radical about this pale ale, it has a big, bright Cascade flavor with an easy-drinking body that I'd be happy to enjoy for a few pints.

On draft at Mr. Beery's, Bethpage, New York.
Poured a hazy medium copper hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a very herbal hop and a light grain.
The taste consisted of an upfront herbal hop with a lightly sweet malt. Full doughiness at the finish with a slight funk.
The mouthfeel was round.
Overall a very nicely hopped ale.

Got a bottle shipped for $6.50 from halftime beverage. Poured into a pint glass.
A - Pour is a little too deep for a pale ale. More of a dark IPA with an amber brown body. Head is very unimpressive just a 1/4 inch that settles to a mild ring.
S - Not very bittering hops, more English malts if anything with a touch of herbal tea. All this is still very faint.
T - Again drinks more like a somewhat crafted IPA. Light biscuit malts, gram cracker sweetness, maybe some crystal malts, and a mild bittering finish that clings to the palate after every sip. Somewhat unbalanced but still enjoyable.
M - Body is medium bodied, somewhat dry but refreshing enough.
Overall not a bad first beer from these guys but I have had better balance in my uber hopped pale ales. Half decent IPA but a forgettable pale ale.

A really nice balance.
Caramel from the malt comes first and is quickly checked by the hops. Compared to similar Pale Ales, the sweetness is a bit more pronounced, but in my opinion this adds to its complexity rather than detracting from its style.
One of those that I simply keep coming back to.
Even better on tap at their tasting room (maybe slightly less sweet than the bottle if that makes sense).

Growlers, bitches. Right from the source.
Pours out dark orange.
Smell is pretty decent.
Great smooth taste with good hop- pop. Almost an extra Pale flavor to it.
Probably a bit biased, but this is my favorite local pale ale. Easy drinking and full of flavor.
