similar to the indiana pale. not as harsh (too bad) but real nice. hoppy citrus bang and goes away slow and lightly malty. the end is a little abrupt as it does change gears. baby, iíll have another please.

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

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007
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 itís a bit metallic. Strong and long bitterness. Powerful.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at Heartland Brewery-Empire State (Manhattan - NY).
Optimal hazy orange golden color with light and fine head of long persistence, a lot irish style. Intense and fragran aroma of sweet and smoked wood, a lot toasted with a light tip of cinnamon. Extremely smooth and dry taste, much barren and warmth taste and with overbearing and extended bitter. Determined but not excessive alcohol content.

Spab (2126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Draught at Empire St. Building location. Pours a clear gold with a decent white head and good lacing. Citrus hops in the aroma. Strong citrus hops in the flavour but balanced by a slight maltiness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Probably the best beer I tried at Heartland.

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.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2009
Tap at Heartland, Empire State Building yesterday. Crystal clear, copper coloured with frothy off-white foam. Hops to the fore, with a cheesy aroma I often discern in dry hopped beers. Slight hints of grapefruit and tangerine; dry finish.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2005
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".

Draught at Heartland Brewery, New York.
Creamy lasting head, hazy light amber body. Mild hoppy and somewhat creamy aroma. Strong bitter hoppy flavor with a fruity tone. Good, but not the most well-balanced. Ultra dry.

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 isnít that good.
