Drat at Heartland (Empire State Building, NYC). Hoppy aroma and flavor. Interesting take on the Pale Ale by adding the nitrogen to create a smooth and creamy version. Unique, but not great.

On nitro tap: Golden amber color with dense lasting white head. Light citrus hop aroma and average hop bite for pale. Malt profile there to keep bitterness down but not noticeable. On tap at Empire State location.

On the death march to 500 ratings this is like my mascot. Go 500. Listed here as an APA, I thought it was an IPA? Not sure what is offensive that beaconstreet is talking about. I liked this brew

Flowery first taste. Gets more meaty the more you drink it, though. Hops donít bother you, well-mixed in and all that, but there is something else offensive here in the blend. Empire State location.

Light amber with a thick white head. Smelled like orange, graitfruit and citrus. Some hints of caramel as well in the taste. Iím not a big fan of dry hopped beers. It was ok though.

Tap at Empire State Building. Pours a clear copper with a finger of thick, creamy head. Aroma was fairly subdued, partly dued to very low serving temp and massive nitro head. is mostly of fresh, tropical fruity and citric hops, but a slight metallic skunkiness ruins it a bit for me. Not a lot of malts to be detected, some toasty bread notes is all. Mouthfeel was typical nitro, creamy head and almost flat. Sparse carbonation, whatís there is smooth on the tongue. Light body. Alright, but nothing Iíd search out again.

Pint on tap at Empire State Building. Pours a tan creamy color with large head. Looks delicious, aroma very slight with some sweetness and maltiness. Taste is very complex with bitter and sweet balanced out by a little hope character. Nothing really stands out but everything blends together well. Very refreshing and smooth, aftertaste is crisp. Could be a session beer without a doubt. One of my favorites at Heartland.

A really interesting version of an APA. It was nitro-charged and easy drinking. I was impressed with the beer served at the base of the Empire State Building.

On tap at Empire State location. Had to get two to work out the taste. Itís all grapefruit all the time but in varying degrees. Poured a light orange yellow with a good amount of head and I could smell the grapefruit from a foot away. The aroma was a blend of hops with some spice mixed in, almost a nutmeg. Taste goes in stages, first itís a light grapefruit like an yellow grapefruit. Then thereís almost a pause, then a strong pink grapefruit taste kicks in, then another pasue and it finishes with a smooth bitterness that last a few minutes into the aftertaste with some other flavor underneath it, almost a citrusy sweet orange flavor. Very complex for an IPA and very funny to me that itís labeled a "pale ale".
