3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Despite living in ithaca for four years I never had any of there beers until a year or so ago. Iíve heard a lot of good things about the brewery but I found this to be a bit of a let down. It had a beautiful pour into my pint glass with tons of bubbles and a light tan fluffy head. Very aromatic with tons of hops - lots of pine and citrus with a bit of basil and herb. Sweet flavor with sticky resinous hop flavor. Very bitter finish. Overall flavor is kinda uninteresting and a little harsh.

Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Light-medium yellow color with a frothy off-white head. A lot of foam on this sucker. Aroma of fresh hopsÖ yep, very flowery actually. Flavor is nothing but fresh hops, right off the plant. Holy $#!+! Wow, what a great beer. If youíre a hop head, this beerís for you. Not heavy, very very light. Nothing but hops. A damn good beer that finishes with a little punch of hop fumes.

Everything that you want in an IPA a good amount of hops as well as a nice amount of bitterness but not overpowering can def taste a sense of floral in the taste as well as a nice fruity finish

Pours orange amber with a slight haze and a creamy ivory head, great lacing. Perfumy hop aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with a dry grainy texture. Flavor of pale toffee malts countered by earthy and citrus hops. Bitter and slightly acidic finish. Pretty damn good,

Pours a clear golden with light, soapy white head. Aroma of pine/floral hops. Similar taste, great yin/yang balance of malt and hops. Wish I had this bottle all to myself. Next time Iím up north Iíll seek this brewery out.

Pours orange with a touch of amber and brown and yellow. Nose is of soap water, hops, and sweet malt. Tastes clean. Good balance of sweet and bitter. No way this is 7.5 alcohol. Great balance. Really nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a medium gold amber. Nose is light hops and a bit acetic. Flavor follows the nose. A bit thin. Kind of goes straight down the pipe and leaves a hint of decent hops but doesnít really expand itís flavors throughout your mouth. A bitterish finish. Decent
