Hoppy, Malty, Clean, Balanced

Crystal clear golden in color with a massive foam head. Layers of floral notes and hoppiness in the nose carry through to the palate with a smooth body, a bite of bitterness, and herbal undertones. A malty sweet backbone pushes back a bit with some toasty bread crustiness, and the clean, dry finish with some mild astringency induces moreishness with each sip. Bitey and balanced, Townie Ale could easily become a go-to beer in my fridge.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #119 (December 2016).

Pours a beautiful, clean, pale amber with a two inch creamy head. Minimal lacing, retaining a thin head to the bottom. Light hop on the nose, more malt — pleasant but not over-the-top. The sip is sweeter than expected, and gives way to a slightly dry, hop intensive swallow that leaves you wanting another gulp. Feel is slightly heavy for an ale, but warms nicely, without a heavy alcohol presence. For my money, the best beer I've had after living in Colorado for over a year ($8.00/6 pack).

Good all around, any time of the year kind of beer...far, far better on-tap if your ever in Lafayette, Co but still tasty poured out of a can.

Poured out a clear, fizzy, golden hue with a small, fizzy, white head. Smelled very citrusy. Fairly sweet. Also, some strong floral notes. It tasted sweet with a mild grassy hop quality. It had a citrus kick, too. It was crisp and sharp.

Clear, dark gold hued body; thick, fluffy, white head. Bright citrus and mellow fruity hop aroma. Light sweetness with a fruity overtone to the flavor; light cereal grains; light breadcrust; bold hop bitterness at the back-end. Medium body; smooth and crisp.

Post Brewing delivers an excellent pale ale chock full of delicate yet bold flavor profile. The aroma comes on full-tilt while the flavor and mouthfeel are more subdued, initially, yet deliver the goods with great balance and subtle complexities.

My second Post brew. I was impressed with their Howdy Pils and this APA is no exception. For educational purposes I would love to know the hops they use in this beer but whatever they are I like the profile happening here.

Look is crystal clear gold with a fluffy head that has still has an inch on it halfway through the beer!

Smells like sweet orange, grapefruit and some slight bready, crackery malt.

taste starts with some great sweet citrus and pine, followed by other overripe fruit and I get some slight floral stuff toward the end. This is all on a light bready malt base. This is a touch sweet for me to a point where it competes with the hops rather than just adding juiciness. While it is a very juicy pale ale it moves into, like I said a "touch" too sweet territory. Still a great beer.

sweet juicy bitterness coats the mouth and sits there for a bit in a juicy finish (not very dry). Great carbonation.

If the hops had more room to shine just a bit more this would be a go to CO pale for me. As it stands I am happy to have had it and will definitely pick it up down the road. I look forward to trying more offerings from these guys (I see on their website that they have an Azacca/Equinox IPA!)
