From 09/26/11 notes. Had on tpa at The Ginger Man in NYC.

a - Pours a clear golden orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of light citrus hops and fruity malts. Very light in both; not bad at all, but pretty average. Would have liked more hops.

t - Tastes of more fruity malts, citrus hops, and light tropical fruits. I think the taste is much stronger and better than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a nice IPA. Would have liked a stronger nose as it was very faint, but the taste made up for it. Worth checking out at least once, and would probably try again.

On-tap at Blind Tiger Ale House, New York, NY

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down but consistently covered the surface and left thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are aromas of floral and spicy hops in the nose.
T: Pleasant flavors of fresh hops dominate the overall taste, which only has a light amount of bitterness (similar to what you get from over steeped tea.)
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is a very easy drinking IPA and is a good choice if you like lots of hop flavors, but not with all the associated bitterness.

Poured a flat solid brown color with some honey highlights, nothing special. The aroma is of sweet malt, cereal, and a limey hop note. The taste mimics the aroma; big cereal malt flavor with limey hops, kind of reminds me of my homebrew APA wort. Tastes quite raw. The brew has a moderate body with little to soft carbonation; malty sweet overall. My impression was that this brew fits in as a pale ale. It seemed malt driven with the strong cereal flavor and the hops didn't really standout.

had on cask at barcade.

A wonderful experience in feel. Poured golden orange cloudy with nice cask head. Smells light of lemon, very subtle. Malt is like the honey in sun tea. Creamy fast drink. Nice and velvety ice tea quality with some mild wood.

Honestly feels more like a well placed EPA. Couldn't find anything on the stuff of the chelsea website. But i can't tell if the beer went mild in the wood or if its intentional.

Please inquire if you find something out.
