Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely aroma with good urine notes, orange and other citrus, background pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with some spicy pine notes, a bit more pee, some gritty earth and grass, orange and grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with continued pee, sturdy citrus fruits, resinous pine, palate-kicking earth, mild pale malts and bread. Great stuff. Well balanced. Exceptionally drinkable.

Ammoniac, sapin, fleurs à la puissance Hill Farmstead avec un corps étoffé, aéré, juteux. Des notes de banane et de noix de coco font parti de l’ensemble également.

On tap at Top Hops. A fresh, tasty big IPA. Grassy, vegetal hops are well balanced with rich malts. A solid 4 in my book!

Draft at Pony HK. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity hops, medium bitterness, lightly sweet malts, and light citric notes. A bit muddles; could be brighter. Still pretty good.

My first beer from this brewer and wow! From a growler filled and consumed the same day. Pours a clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Awesome aroma of pineapple, melon, tangerine, and grapefruit. The flavor is malt with some caramel followed by a wash of melon, grapefruit and tangerine. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Dries out a bit after the swallow. Excellent!

@ Singlecut. Pours clear copper with a ring of off-white head. Aroma is full of diesel onions, reminiscent of the TG pale ales. Taste follows suit for the most part. Issue here is that there’s a decided lack of carbonation to support the beer. Falls flat with regard to texture. Also some weird astringency that doesn’t quite fit. Gets slightly better as it warms but I definitely prefer half stack to this.

Draught@RNH. Slightly hazy golden color, small white head. Grapefruity and piney nose. Medium-bodied. Fruity, resiny and piney. Balanced IPA not showing its ABV.

Trappist1 (420) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2013
Blond, mat of color, small head. Nose: exotic fruits, sweety, sticky. Taste: very dry, bitter, the fruityness of the nose does not finds it way in the taste. Aftertaste is very long bitter

Tap at The Jeffrey. Pours orange with white head. Hoppy and sweet nose. Tate’s of bitter piney hops, floral, grapefruit rinds, honey, touch of oolong tea. Nice carbonation and aftertaste. Dig it

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, honey, and pale malts. Taste is not particularly bitter or hoppy. The malts are pretty light as well. However, the flavors are all quite nice put together. I drank this is after finishing an Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail, so this, of course, seemed very mild in comparison. Good beer though.
