COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Elegantly traditional and rich in its’ hop character, this India Pale Ale is thirst-quenching and soul-satisfying. Each sip delivers a bounty of herbal and floral hop character, balanced by the fruity signature of our house yeast.

Clear golden-copper body with adequate head that subsides relatively quickly. Herbal and, obviously, floral aroma for the namesake. Fresh and earthy with subtle hop flavors. Not the super pungent hop taste that is widespread in most American IPA’s. Sturdy malt backbone with toasted cereal. Smooth and drinkable.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Pretty poor head retention but decent lacing. Wonderful piney aroma with some lighter hints of tropical fruit. This one leans heavy on the resin, earth and pine, though. Juicy flavor with more piney resiny notes. Fruity notes are underneath along with a strong bready malt backbone. Bitterness is high and provides a wonderful counterpoint to the malt. Slick mouthfeel finishing moderately sticky. Overall, a very solid IPA but not really Earth-shattering. Definitely drinkable and a good everyday choice.

pcshotsauce33 (61) - Columbus, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Scents of floral citrusy pine, cloudy with minimal head, and sweet light grapefruit notes that splash my tongue with hoppy pleasure. This isn’t a hop explosion by no means but a sweet lightly sour fruity IPA that I could have over and over again.

Pint at Proof at Newark airport. Medium golden colour. Not much head. About like you’d expect.

Frank (3299) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2015
This is a nice, bright and tasty IPA and probably the best I’ve had from Ithaca. It’s cloudy orange in color and unfortunately pretty much w/o a head. Some lavender hits in the nose first but that quickly wanes to a deeper, citrus and stone fruit aroma. It is full bodied but not sweet and brisk carbonation keeps it lively across the tongue. The citrus notes give it a juicy quality and crisp bitterness in the finish keeps it from cloying. This is a fairly strong IPA but still drinks nice and easily w/ plenty of hop flavor from start to finish. I’d definitely buy this pretty regularly if it was local to me.

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Citrus pine aroma. Heavy citrus hops in the flavor. Light malt backbone. A little thin in mouth feel.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours golden with a white head. Huge hops aromas of citrus, pine, floral and resin. Tastes bitter up-front and follows crisp and dry with only mild malt support. Mild fruitiness/citrus flavors. This is a nice hop-forward and thirst-quenching IPA in which bitterness is the predominant flavor and that somewhat fatigues the palate.

Dacrza (619) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 26, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: unwinding after the Christmas visitors have left... APPEARANCE: hazy, opaque, almost blood-orange body; white coral sits atop an uneven head; uneven lacing... AROMA: brilliant, BIG mango and pomegranate mix with a floral bouquet to arrest the senses... PALATE: buzzing, vibrantly electric mouthfeel; warm, full finish; big, but drinkable; intense, teeth-clenching aftertaste...TASTE: a potpourri of citric cadences--orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango and sharp sugars--a hop bomb... OVERALL: a mesmerizing enticement of hops, much as the mix pack proclaims; more overpowering than the Cascazilla and the banner carrier in a hop offensive...
