Keg at the Pony Bar Hell’s Kitchen - NYC. Pours clear gold with a decent, frothy white cap. It’s a very nice and highly drinkable APA. Good dried grapefruit presence, some rindy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely balanced on the finish. Solid offering.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Bright citrus over a touch of malt. Medium bodied, light sweetness, musk, touches of Belgian yeast. Nice citrus into the finish, pith and a bit of grapefruit. Light and very easy drinking. Lovely.
