Bottle. Best by June 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Golden in the glass with quickly dissipating white head. Citrus and flowers in the nose, great aroma! Hoppy bitterness right out of the gate with citrus fruit and pine. Finishes slightly dry and bitter with grapefruit rind. Sweet caramely malt balances out the bitterness perfectly. A real east coast hop bomb! Medium body with light carbonation make this 7.5 ABV IPA easy to drink. An extremely well crafted IPA. Seek this one out! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prufrockstar (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2014
12oz bottle with thanks to BoostIPA. Pours clear amber with some offwhite head. Aroma: soapy, caramel, lightly floral, copper. Taste: caramel sweetness, bitter finish, copper. Palate: Full, sluggish body with average carbonation. Overall: I missed out on all of these beers when I lived in Ithaca. I’ll give them another shot if/when I visit the town again -- I have a feeling drinking them on draft at the Chapter House or wherever the beers can be found would leave a better impression. At my kitchen table in Seattle, with a bottle on the verge of passing its "best before" date, my impression is "okay."

warhawk91 (293) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft at Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Hazy orange gold, sticky white head. Aroma is true to the name, pine and aromatic hops. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple come through. Taste is bitter up front smoothed by a crisp and malty backbone, orange and pineapple in the finish with lingering grapefruit and mild bitterness. Really nice

It has a floral quality to it, but it has equal amounts of citrus sweetness. Light and crisp. Tried at Churchkey in 2014.
