3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Mindspin315 on BA. Pours orangy/copper with a couple fingers head. Smell fresh grapefruit, a bit of melon and tropical fruit, juicy. Taste is lightly bitter up front and very juicy and fruity in the middle and tail. Leaves a hoppy aftertaste. Very easy drinking. Good ipa.

Excellent hops flavor, nice aroma. The after taste is good, but still lacks the punch of real IPA'S. I'm pissed off that Ithaca Brewing did not exist when I was at Cornell University!

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a wonderful orange tinted gold. Virtually no head to it. Aroma is decent, taste was solid, very hoppy. It didnít really excite the palate, but still thought this was a decent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour of cloudy brew with short head that quickly dissipates. Taste begins with citrus and pine with mild hop aftertaste. Not bitter at all. Hop craving IPA drinkers might frown a bit, but this is a very drinkable IPA with a decent "punch".

Alluring citrus aroma is backed up by a full bodied flavour that is more balanced (ie. less hop-forward) than expected. An excellent beer.

Clear, yellow with nice lacing. Sweet scent. Pine aroma. A nice level of carbonation.

I saved this for last and glad I did. A mystery; scents of lavender, tea and orange. Yup. Awesome. It stands up to and compliments Sriracha shrimp.
"If you donít know, know you know". I donít have a favorite style but this one of the best beers Iíve ever had. So glad I have 11 more to enjoy and share during the holidays. Make that ten.

Bottle into a glass. Nice golden pour. Big pine and citrus aroma. Taste is pine, tropic fruits, sticky resin. Big mouthful of sticky pine lingers for awhile. Really crisp and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intense aromas of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, citrus in general. Very hop forward, but the flavors are not as intense as the nose, but still pretty bright and floral, tropical hops.
