Swift pint near Times Square before dashing to JFK for flight home. Ruby/russet, a little thin and not much aroma, but it has loads of malt and a fair bit of bitterness. Deceptively drinkable for the abv (I’d have had this down as a session ale - just as well we only had one or we’d have missed our flight!). Nothing earthshattering but a fine drinkable nicely malty and bitter pint. Might well check out their tasting room next time we’re in New York.

Sample at the taproom. Slightly hazy copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Hops, fruit and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and pale malts. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

From the 16 oz. can marked 2604-1627. Nice looking medium member pour, kind of mahogany, with a big lingering cream colored head. There is a vague roasted malt note on the nose but it tends to smell like cheap perfume. Medium body. .A slightly malty sweetness and perfume. Moderate bitterness.

Can from jredmond. Started as a foamer, but the pour is clear, beautiful copper with a yellow beige foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Near med body. Flavor is mild or not so mild? roasty malt with upfront citrus and following floral. Rather tasty; a bit off the standard APA path. Finishes less than dry.
