Draught/nitro at the brewery, Empire State Building NYC
Amber color. Nice creamy head. Some nice hop aroma, lightly fruity and resiny. Good maltiness, good hopping, the taste is not completely spoiled by the nitro, but it’s a bit metallic. Strong and long bitterness. Powerful.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Draft at Empire State building location... Hazy, deep golden ale with a creamy, white head. Great retention with thick, glue-like lacing. The nitro really cuts into the aroma. Mildly citrusy with a hint of toffee. Bitter flavor of pink grapefruit. Light to medium-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Long, bitter, dry finish.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
Tap at the Empire State location. White nitro head over an amber orange beer. Soft aroma of orange rind and sweet pale malt. Aroma is quite subdued but the flavour is pretty solid, sweet pale malt, light caramel over some spicy orange citric hop flavours. Lingering bitterness. Decent brew.

On tap at Empire State Building. Double dry hops, maybe, but the nitrogen treatment they have given this one killed the dog. Silly idea to nitrokeg an APA!

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 29, 2008
(10/22/08) Draught sample at the brewpub at Empire State Building, New York. Clear deep golden color. Aroma of malt, some hops, lots of diacetyl and fruity hints. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, some buttery notes a rather bitter hoppy finish.A creamy nitro mouthfeel I’m really not fond of. Maybe just a bad batch, but they served it.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Pretty standard american IPA- perhaps slightly on the lighter side nowadays though. Pours a nice orange.amber color with a good foamy head but dissipates rather quickly. Standard american hoppy aroma- cascades etc. Flavor is hoppy but backed up with a decent amount of malt. Finishes very clean and smooth.

Nitro pour at the Empire State location - it was a little strange to have this on nitro, but I suppose the brits put certain pale-ale-ish type beers on nitro, so this isn’t entirely unusual - the creamy palate that the pour produces helps keep the citrusy hops from becoming abrasive - the malt profile wasn’t very strong, but was enough to aid in balancing out the hops - very easy drinking for an assertively hopped ale, which is a-okay with me.

dwyerpg (4436) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2006
hoppier than the other IPA (not sure why this says American Pale ale), but still nothing special. It fades quickly but leaves a graininess on your tongue that isn’t that good.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
Draught at the Empire State location. Cloudy orange colour. Orangey hop nose with citrus. Big flavour from citric hops, with a medium body. Good bitterness. Smooth but chewy mouthfeel.

On tap at the Empire State Building Location. Dark yellow, thick creamy white head (thank you nitro). Good aroma - strong hops, very resiny, even cuts through the nitro. Taste is good as well - lots of hops again, maybe a bit muted. Like a kicked up version of their IPA really with nitro added - it interestingly did not really detract that much - with this amount of hops the taste came through. Good stuff.
