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.

A: pours a nice tawny color. Nice light tan head. Good retention level and nice cascading lacing. S: good citrus hop aromas, some pine as well. Good crystal malts. T: wonderful citrus hop flavors with a nice lighter malt(biscuity) flavor. Hints of pine and mostly grapefruit from the citrus. M: mild mouthfeel. Body is a little thin, but enjoyable. Solid carbonation level. Very crisp. D: great example of the style. Could be a little maltier, but a nice beer regardless. Would definitely drink again.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 8/22/10. Floral and fruity. Rather fresh hoppy aroma. Tangerines/apricots(?), hop flowers, some pine resin, a little grass. Its just not quite as strong as Id like. A bit blandly bitter, particularly in the finish. A lightly sweet crystal malt flavor lurks below. This is yet another beer that Id like to revisit in the future, preferably from a fresh keg. 7/7/11. Better than I remember. Fruity, floral hop aroma and very good flavor. Could have a bit more bitterness, but its nice and pale without any of the cloying caramel note that plagues many IPAs. It has some light stickiness. Pleasant beer.

Very nice, fruity nose on this. A sweet fruity rather than the grapefruit that is typical. Real nice feathered light amber rich gold color with a nice big head that laced around nicely before leaving a thin film on the surface. Nothing much on the back end which I like although most may not.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2010
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors. Delightful orange, resin, tangerine and general citrus aroma. Bright and fresh. Pours a hazed pale orange and golden with copious off-white super-lacy head. Flavors are right there with the aroma. Bright fresh floral and pungent clementine and sour orange peel citrus. Brisk, grassy and fresh. Nicely balanced with the right malt profile (not too much crystal malt). A really solid, delicious IPA.

cfrancis (2952) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
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.

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.
