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, i’ll have another please. slowrunner77 (12843) - 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.

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 (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007

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.

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.
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. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2008
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 (2037) - 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. 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". Jeppe (2634) - 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.
