ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Undated bottle from Box O Hops 12 pack, drunk 11/18/16.
Mostly clear, copper-amber colored body with lighter gold tints and a medium-sized white head showing moderate to low retention.
Orange, spice, caramel, apple and other very straightforward C hop IPA with East Coast specialty malt and estery yeast notes.
Like a slightly improved East Coast IPA from 2008, it at least has a bit more maltiness and a softer texture. The beer is cleaner than the other 3 in the mixed pack and obviously filtered. Seems Ithaca needs a lot of work on unfiltered IPAs. Anyways, this is fruity, simple, clean and with low to moderate sweetness and a light to medium body. Doesnt need all of this alcohol. I guess this beer was considered good when it first came out?? I remember having it back then and not understanding what the fuss was about. It certainly is nothing to write home about now.

Handypaul (459) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a 1-finger, white, mostly lasting head that leaves very good lacing. Aroma of sugar candy, freshly cut grass and hay. Lightly bitter and medium sweet taste, sticky sweet mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbo that hits the back and sides of my tongue, flavors of caramel, butterscotch, grapefruit and sugar. Finish is medium sweet trending to lightly bitter in the middle and far finish. Quite out of balance with too much sweetness.

Tap at keg & Lantern in Brooklyn Pours clear orange hue with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is chocolate hops slightly musty earthy herbal and tea qualities. Maybe thats the flowers. Flavors are very floral herbal and flowery. Very low bitternrss. Unique somewhat old school ipa here. Very nice!

SONOFWODEN (27) - New York, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Lighter bodied, hoppy without the hard bite, and exceptionally smooth to drink. A no-brainer, especially in the summer. A more moderate IPA. I was impressed by how smooth and easy it was to drink. A little more body and bolder flavor would have easily put this IPA over the 4.0 score for me. But, as is, I will definitely pour this one again.

Steelhead1 (1) - New York, USA - JUL 14, 2016 does not count
This is one of the finest brew I have ever tasted. It really wakes up the taste buds and you pick up on all the different flavors going on with out being overwhelmed by any single.one. It pairs well with a warm summer day, a good toke (or two) and some good music.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a hazy yellow with a sparse white head. Super hop nose of citurs and pineapple. A barrage of hop flavors and good palate. Delicious
