A: Dense tangerine orange has a strong factor of visible carbonation and floaties within. Sturdy, frothy, whipped topping has a long lasting retention with a buff tone and pale yellowish undertones.

S: Aroma was soft, semi-dry lemon flower hops, flashes of sweet pale grains, soft fresh wet grapefruit with a light hint of hay and saw dust.

T: The flavor had floral orange, citrusy grapefruit hops, with some sweet speciality grains. Light, dry yeasty touch, dry fruitiness, bready with some citronella. Warm cooked pineapple fruitiness, spicy hop bite finish.

M: Creamy malt, mouthful, good carbonation level with a dry bittering citrus finish off the tongue.

O: Overall a good level of hops, bittering some belgian yeastiness, pretty good.

Bottle dated 140203 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of pine
Head average (3.5 cm), white, creamy, diminishing to a 3 mm ring
Lacing Ok – many small islands of small bubbles
Body light yellow, hazy, much suspended material
Flavor begins with a solid hit of pine which fades to a light bitterness; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation

A pleasant IPA, but closer to a pale ale, IMHO

Bright honey golden hue with a big white head at least three finger width, fine Belgian style lacing. Aromatics spicy yeast, earthy citric hops, a bit of pepper, and a touch of vegetal/garlic notes from the hops. The American hops and the Belgian yeast are competing with each other. Reminds me of other versions especially the Stone's Belgian IPA...harsh on the palate citrus peel, Belgian spice bitterness comes off like perfume accidentally swallowed super bitter and not so cohesive with the light golden base malt here. Mouthfeel, a bit aggressive with the carbonation medium bodied some cloying aspects on the palate. Overall I'm happy I got to try this new Ithaca release, thanks to wvsabbath for the sample.
