mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Pacific Standard, NY cask ($7) Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is lemon and flowers. Taste is kind of sour with a hoppy tinge. It tastes a bit like lemonade. A weird brew. I feel like I had a different beer than the other raters. Is this what cask does to a beer? Perhaps.

rlgk (10275) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2012
Cask at Ginger Man, NYC. Golden beer with a nice creamy offwhite head. Hoppy floral aroma, nutty, biscuits, bready, some spices. Floral hop flavor, grassy, nuts, hay, herbal notes, grapes, pine, some apples, roasted and a bit herbal. Decent but has a hard time matching all the fresh IPA:s available on Manhattan.

jredmond (5300) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Draft at pony with Brendan. Pours a golden body with nice white head. Aroma is fresh grassy hope and light perfume. Mouthfeel is bitter, dry and somewhat bland. Maybe it’s unbalanced, but the beer really loses me in the finish with a pretty offensive floral perfume grainy hop flavor. Seems like it has potential, but this batch is a no-go.

ben4321 (3862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 8/25/12

Aroma: The nose is light, not much going on, some malty and citrus notes
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a white head
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, with some citrus, grains, and a mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft feel and a fairly short duration
Overall Impression: Overall, this one is kind of boring. It was described as a nice "hoppy" American-style IPA by the waiter, but that certainly isn’t what I got...

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Draft. pretty lame. Pours a bright golden body, hazy, with a white head. Scant malty body, pretty grain y and bitter. Lame malt tones, dry malt tones. Actually tastes a bit old with nothing really interesting or vibrant to speak of. Also where are the hops in this.
