Thanks to zach for this. Typical big hop IPA. Pours a hazy amber with a big frothy head. Aroma is a blast of hop with floral notes. Taste is a nice hop bitterness mouthfeel with floral and moderate earth tones. Good beer

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a small white ring. The aroma is floral and herbal hops, hints of citrus and fruit with some grainy and bready malt. The flavor has a moderate sweetness up front and average bitterness in the finish. The malts are a touch sweeter than the nose. Light notes of honey and citrus. Medium bodied; slightly syrupy. Decent, yet unspectacular IPA.

Best of the ithaca offerings. Fruity boutique; resiny mouthfeel. A true east coast ipa.

KyotoLefty (7553) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle. Medium copper. Fragrant, flowery aroma with citrus, pineapple, grass, and fruit salad. Flavor is similar, but with somewhat sweet malts as well, giving honey and light caramel notes. Borders on the syrupy. Great hops, but a bit too sweet and the bitterness is very mild. Like it, though.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a long-lasting foamy head that cakes itself on the side of the glass. Citrus hops aroma, grapefruit, fruity esters, pineapple and a touch of mango along with some spiceyness. The palate is smooth, light-medium bodied with an average length finish. The flavor is well-balanced with juicy hops, a nice malt backbone and soft citrus and floral bitterness. A nice surprise. Delightful!

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2011 Unfortunately I thought this was De Ranke Flower Power, a Top 5 saison of mine. Boy was I wrong. On tap at Paradiso Georgetown, this pours a clear, deep yellow with a rocky, creamy, dense, off-white head that has insane retention but little lace. This is pretty much a piney, nutty hop bomb with no body to match or balance. Every IBU is imminent, massive Brasil nut and walnut skin abounding. A little bit of cream of wheat and oatmeal body peek through to remind you this is a beer rather than hop tea. Regardless, it is a little past its prime and has started to degenerate unfortunately. What a sad, ironic tale it is that IPA was invented for longevity, and here the American dry-hopped the #%@ out variety has a half life of a few weeks. I have no notes for the aroma probably because it was just stale hop strawberry. 6/22/2010 6/4/7/3/12=3.2

355mL very fresh in NYC. The pour is still very nice with a barely yellow head exploding forth with generous retention and rocky terrain. Aroma is really nice here: fresh tropical fruits, light pepper, peach, fresh grapefruit and pomelo. Taste follows suit with fresh fruit and melons, all quenching caramel and pale ale malt, no bitterness, no strawberry, no degradation. It is sort of a pain in the ass to search for fresh IPAs in a world of stale IPAs. But damn when you score, you score. 1/22/2011 7/4/8/4/14=3.7

12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a pocked white head. Nose is orange, pine, bubblegum and mango. Medium body, resiny with soft carb. Taste is orange peel, bitter lemon and toffee. Dry finish with juniper and soapy hints.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 Bottle courtesy of RegSpeir. Intense aroma of fruits, citrus, and pine. strangely sweet. somemalt background supporting super intense resinous hop flavor. very noticeable alcohol in the flavor but not the nose. Nice bitterness buzz, lingering slightly.
