2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ve liked other beers from Ithaca beer, but this was a huge disappointment. Both the initial candy sweetness and roasted smoke in the aftertaste are overpowering and unpleasant. Not awful, but not good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful autumnal amber with brown tresses and thinnish head. Intensely spicy nose that overflows with phenolics and touches of sasparilla. The body does not come together quite as well. A green banana dominates the phenolics and mixes off-key with sasparilla underpinnings. A bit off-balance and sour/green, but okay.

Aroma is great,appearance is great and beer is good but not great . Aroma is yeasty and a lot like a sour ale . Dark amber in color and huge cream head . I think yeast and sugars are the biggest flavors and a little sour.

On tap. Pours with a clear bronze body with an off-white head that fades. Aromas are yeasty, fruity, estery, lots of phenol, clove, spicy. Nearly a buckwheat note. Herbal. Flavors are very spicy and herbal, peppery, highly phenolic, nutty, malty and a bit of vegital. Very dry, lively bubbles, a touch warming.

Poured a hazy copper brown color. Medium head. Aroma is nutty, with some pepper and smoke, and caramel. Med light sweetness, lite bitter, lite sour. Med bodied. Ave mouthfeel. Not very smooth. Something in here ruins this beer for me. Not sure what. Almost like a burnt pepper flavor or vegetable or somethingg simular.

Not a bad beer by any stretch, but probably not a repeat for me. On draft at bukowski’s, dark amber to brown, aroma and taste is bitter brown sugar. Easy to drink.

Bottle thanks to bhensonb. Poured near brown with an off white head. Aroma was Belgian yeast, citrus, caramel, bread, and dark fruits. Flavor was pretty much spot on with the nose. Body was light and fuzzy.
