Draught/nitro at the brewery, Empire State Building NYCDSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 29, 2008
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 it’s a bit metallic. Strong and long bitterness. Powerful.
(10/22/08) Draught sample at the brewpub at Empire State Building, New York. Clear deep golden color. Aroma of malt, some hops, lots of diacetyl and fruity hints. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, some buttery notes a rather bitter hoppy finish.A creamy nitro mouthfeel I’m really not fond of. Maybe just a bad batch, but they served it. slowrunner77 (11911) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 "serving this 5.75% ipa NO2 style suited it quite well. this was surprisingly right up there with the oatmeal stout as a standout and Heartland’s best brew, possibly. such great hoppy flavor for a weaker % ipa, blanced and mellowed nicely by the nitrous. less balanced than the Indiana Pale Ale, but better. hopscotch (11043) - 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.

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.

Double dry hops, maybe, but the nitrogen treatment they have given this one killed the dog. Silly idea to nitrokeg an APA! dwyerpg (6054) - 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. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Nitro pour at the Empire State location - it was a little strange to have this on nitro, but I suppose the brits put certain pale-ale-ish type beers on nitro, so this isn’t entirely unusual - the creamy palate that the pour produces helps keep the citrusy hops from becoming abrasive - the malt profile wasn’t very strong, but was enough to aid in balancing out the hops - very easy drinking for an assertively hopped ale, which is a-okay with me.

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. rickgordon (3874) - 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.
