Draft at shortys Fidi NYC. Pours a nice dark brown color. Almost amber looking. Taste is not as hoppy as is expect but it's very well balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Beer Culture, New York. Another good rye based beer. These are becoming more popular and tastier.

ladnewton (1806) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Cask at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn NY on 3rd July 2013. Hazy copper with lasting off white foam and initial lacing. Very hoppy aroma with some yeastiness. Intensely bitter in-mouth with spice and pepper, followed by a bittersweet finish with intense spiciness. Light, medium body. First Cask Ale I have sampled in the US.

Mango cask at barcade dry hopped with Chinook. Pours hazy orange with a dense soft head and crazy lace. Aroma is less tropical than you’d think and lots of grapefruit pith, grain, and pine. Flavor is more mango flavor and sweetness to start but quickly picks up plenty of pithy grapefruit bitterness very clean that goes and goes. Feel is dense, alive, lush. Really nice cask IPA, perhaps the best I can remember having.

Smells like you?re chasing a skunk through a pine forest. Tastes like a perfectly charred corn tortilla rapped around a bit of pollo loco chicken skin. Sweetness, bitterness and a little ground Chile and cumin.

This beer tastes like bubble gum. There's a deep hop flavor up front then a crisp bitterness followed by a rich (but not too sweet) malt. A really good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Mugs in Brooklyn, as a Rye IPA. Herby, tart rye and dry bitter finish. Drying body all around. Rich, nice.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Tap at Alewife: Copper pour with an off white head. Clean cascade aroma with a touch of crystal malt back. Light-medium body. Herbal resiny rich cascade flavor. Clean and feels west coast. Cery similar to many of Sierra Nevadas IPAs. Not bad.

Draft from Barrier brewery. Reminds me of Founders Centennial IPA. Has the biscuit malt backbone. But an added kiwi/lime bitterness. Despite some very assertive flavors, it’s not heavy or cloying in any way. Incredibly, it manages to stay light and smooth.
