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.

Rich brass color with a hippy-trippy label. Big head and full lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with notes of herbs and spruce. This has a full pine flavor - are those needles in my glass? - but with good malt backing. There is something a little odd in there too - some herbal/spice flavor and a resin-like aftertaste. I don’t know about flower power, but this IPA has hop power, and at 8% ABV, some alcohol power too. Another good brew from Ithaca.

I felt this was a very good IPA. It sat on the palate great. Smooth and balanced through out. I hope to have it again soon so that I can examine it more closely.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle from hopdog! Thanks buddy! Aroma of floral hops, some sweet malt, light citrus, and some honey. Might be a little oxidized, as it doesn’t seem to be as zesty as others say it is. Pours a nice orange with brown hues. Head settles to a thin ring. Caramel and honey give this one a good deal of sweetness. It is followed by a floral hop character that isn’t around long. Malt overpowers the hops, but the beer becomes pretty fruity with a tangy floral/herbal finish. Very drinkable at 8%. I found it rather quenching too. I would like to try this one again to see if I can find a bottle that tastes like "that stuff" that others say it tastes like. Wait... After the sip lingers for a while, I get a definite herbal "herbal" quality! I bet this is real nice on tap.

blklab2007 (2092) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2010 bottle poured a copper red color with a one finger head that fell to a thin layer. aroma has wonderful sweet citrus hops, pine, honey, pollen, and caramel malt. highly addictive candy hop aromas. mouth feel is a little light with just enough carbonation to get it across. flavor has plenty of resinous pine citrus hop up against a fairly hefty sweetness. just enough malt to not be one sided. finish is a little washed out with bitterness loosing the flavors. very enjoyable and caught me by surprise.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUN 23, 2008
bottle. pours clear orange with a big sticky, lacy with head. the hops offer moderate pine and resinous flavors. the palate is a little too sweet. its a pleasant honey like sweetness but makes he beer less sessionable then it could be. good flavors all around but could use a little balance.

Not a bad IPA, pretty average but drinkable & enjoyable, especially compared to the rest of the sampler box I purchased, poured a beautiful copper color with a decent off-white head, left a generous amount of lacing around the glass, aroma was full of hops, citrus & yeast, body was medium & crisp, the flavor sported a nice amount of hops & bitterness with subtle hints of citrus, bread & grass, the finish & aftertaste were pleasant with a nice crispness & bitterness, definitely the best of the four I tried from their sampler box

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle: Pours a light amber-orange with a big bubbly white head. This is the epitome of ’resiny hop’ flavor. If hops oozed sap like trees, this would be the beer made with that stuff. Nose is strongly of pine, a bit floral and a squeeze of citrus. Taste is pine, some citrus with a light and lingering bitter end. Above average overall.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottled. Small head on a clear, fairly rich amber body. The aroma is spectacular, highly perfumed, fresh, lively, with a suggestion of fruit somewhere in there, but there’s a slight industrial smell from the alcohol. The flavours are both too sweet and too bitter. The thick, unyieldingly syrupy body doesn’t help with the candied tastes up front, and the bitterness becomes nasty and astringent if you let it linger. That scent almost makes it worth the experience, but it doesn’t make for the best-tasting IPA.

Cruzan59 (197) - Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2008
12oz bottle, variety pack from Brewers Outlet, Lancaster, PA...pours a nice clear amber, medium off-white head...grassy citrus aroma...flavors of orange-grapefruit, not an overpowering hop bitterness...nice balance, smooth mouthfeel, thin lacing.
