Light amber with a thick white head. Smelled like orange, graitfruit and citrus. Some hints of caramel as well in the taste. I’m not a big fan of dry hopped beers. It was ok though. JoeMcPhee (9451) - 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. dwyerpg (6286) - 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 (3878) - 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. hopscotch (11175) - 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.

On tap at Empire State location. Had to get two to work out the taste. It’s 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 it’s a light grapefruit like an yellow grapefruit. Then there’s 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 it’s labeled a "pale ale". Dickinsonbeer (5074) - 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. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2004
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 beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Flowery first taste. Gets more meaty the more you drink it, though. Hops don’t bother you, well-mixed in and all that, but there is something else offensive here in the blend. Empire State location. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2004
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.
