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.

Tap @ Cambridge Commons... Poured clear amberish-orange with a white head. Floral, herbal hops on the nose with a touch of malted grains and sugars. Smooth, mildly carbonated palate. Awesome floral hop flavors up front with an insanely well-balanced malt character. The hops and malted grains each countered each other nicely while emphasizing the hops well.

Received this in a trade from LUM. Thanks! Pours a deep amber color with minimal head. Just enough you know its carbonated. The nose - pine, slight grapefruit, maple syrup??? The mouthfeel - nice its very citrusy upfront which smoothes out to a nice hoppy bitter back end. this is a nice IPA which is very drinkable. BTW I get some maltiness in there also on the backend. I would certainly buy this beer if I came across it in my travels. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-06-2008 00:13:04 --

Pours clear amber into a shaker. White conglomerate head with excellent retention leaves slight sheets as it slowly recedes. Pine and weed aromas. Sweet malt upfront turning quickly to a bitter, astringent weed resin finish.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
tap. Nice copper color with floral and pine aromas. Nice flavors of pine and citrus, very hoppy but smooth with a nice mouthfeel. Has some lingering bitterness in the finish that is offset with some malt backbone. Nice.

12 oz bottle pours medium copper color with a nice foamy head. Nice citrus and floral hop aroma. Nice bitterness that does not over power the body of caramel and slight bit of yeast. Bitterness fades into the malty body. Does not leave a bitter taste in your mouth. Very nice IPA. Not trying to make you have bitter beer face, but a nice solid IPA all the same.

I thought this was a mediocre IPA. It was a little watery but i was also drinking other heavily hopped beers and that may have caused the disturbance.

Draft. Amber beer with a whitish head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit, light pine and caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Some bitterness. Grapefruit, pine, and caramel lingers.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2011 Fresh bottle, re-rated. And from my experience, fresh is the ONLY way to go with this beer. Golden yellow pour with a decent head. Nose shows a lot of fruit notes, some sharp citrus and some sweeter, tangerine-ish stuff. Promises lots of hop character without much else. Flavor follows on that, and doesn’t disappoint. Loads of citrus flavor, and sharp citrus bitterness that finishes clean. Tangerines and oranges round out hop flavors. Mild sweetness, with a solid body held up by mild caramel and toffee. Clean, smooth, good finish. Overall a superb IPA- if fresh. If not... falls apart fast.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2009 I think this is a really underrated IPA. Especially at the prices you can get it at in Ithaca! It’s a session IPA, if you can call it that at 8% abv. Lots of grass, some pine, some grapefruit, but not a ton. The malt bill isn’t overly thick, and it’s nicely bittered, but not too bitter. This is a damn fine IPA completely in fitting with the style. Which might be why it’s so underrated.
