Goodgrief (2082) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 20, 2018
Can. Orange pour with smallish head. Orange and grapefruit on the nose. Grapefruit bite with orange a melons. Moderate bitterness. Not terrible, but pretty forgettable. Decent.

blankboy (7928) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2018
[Can (16oz)] Pours a hazy dark orange-copper with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Some minimal lacing. Aroma is malty, a bit bready, fruity and piney. Flavour is malty first and ends bitter, a bit sweet and fruity in the middle and there's a touch of alcohol in there. Medium bodied. A bit maltier and not hoppy enough for a DIPA, to me, just good overall.

nimbleprop (9044) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Tap at Max's in Baltimore, pours a lightly hazy orange with a ring of white head. Nose is very standard, orange, grapefruit, pine, soap. Flavor has some honey and grist, bitter orange, pine, soap. Bitter finish. Very run of the mill.

beern (250) - Alabama, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Pours orange-golden, slightly hazy with a nice one finger foaming white head. Tastes of malt and bitter pine. It’s full bodied with moderate carbonation. Somewhat boozy.

lylertarson (6) - - DEC 13, 2016 does not count
growler pour from Dominion Wine & Beer, snifter. nose is weak pine and a little lemony. color is opaque yellow and very boring. taste brings forward a decent amount of ripe pine and citrus. not bad, but left with a bit of booze in my sinuses.

ClarkVV (7050) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Undated bottle from the Box O Hops 12 pack, drunk 11/18/16.
Lightly hazy, copper-orange-golden body topped by a moderately well-retained, off-white head.
Strong tangerine juice, with orange rind, pineapple and alcohol in the nose signify another rather messy IPA from Ithaca, with not enough (no) maltiness behind it. None of the soft honey or wheat of a good NE IPA. Little to no juiciness and just a lot of coarse grain, alcohol and citrus.
Very strong, bitter, boozy body with resin on the end and again, not a malty texture. Grainy, husky and overly dry with light caramel and bread mixing with the tangerine and nectarine. Pineapple, pine, booze and spice linger on the finish.

drfabulous (9010) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Draught at City Tap House. Hoppy hop water with citrus and bitterness and pine. Nice.

Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to almost orange color with a sly transparency running about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a decent pace. A finger’s worth of head graces the top nicely and dissipates at a nice even pace. Sticky messy lace clings adequately. The aroma starts off with a crisp sweet citrus rind and balances exceptionally well with some danky sweet onion and then sly sweet and bitter pine. The flavor copies the aroma very nicely in pulling together the bitter and the sweet and runs into a semi-sweet citrusy aftertaste with a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Low to medium carbonation leads a refined juicy bitter semi-soft feel rolling over my tongue. Overall, a very nicely done DIPA by Ithaca and in fact, probably my favorite one to date by this brewery. Of course, I would have this again.

DocLock (11236) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours turbid and bright orange with fluffy, 2-finger off-white head. Nose is resiny, piney, floral hops. Tastes resiny, piney, with notes of grapefruit, overripe peach, and a juicy finish with some sweetness and some bitterness.

malrubius (3119) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle from meditrina. Hazy golden orange with lasting loose head and lace. Citrus pine pineapple grassy aroma. Mango orange creamsicle sweetness with fruity citrus and spice and bready finish. Medium body, fairly soft carbo. Rustic but delicious, like a great homebrew.
