a step below some of the Ithaca stuff I have had, especially flower power and the other hop forward ales. this one is more English, overly malt balanced and with more bitterness than hop flavor, it got a little heavy in hot weather too, but I liked it overall. the nose is copper malty with some decent hop character, but its all a bit muddled to me. fuller body and a longer finish makes it drink a little slow, and it doesn't warm up all that well. some good grassy hops to the back end, and an amber malt sort of flavor. I like the beer, but think it probably better for fall than summer, Ithaca always impresses me with originality, and this one seems more generic too me, but I like it overall. more bubbles and less body would make it a better summer sipper.

A: Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Orange/brown in color with a nice 2-finger off-white head that settles into a nice foam ring with decent lacing. Hazy in texture, but not totally opaque.

S: Sweeter up-front that you would think, with some strong malt notes and just a hint of hops. Light overall, with aromas of berries, caramel malt, fresh oat nut bread, a touch of lemon, and some cut grass.

T: Bread and malts mix up-front with a nice hop backbone and distinct hop bitterness on the swallow. Notes of lemon peel, bright caramel malts and a toasty flavor account for most of the in-mouth taste. Hops dance around the periphery with a lemony, dry air and a bitter aftertaste. Everything about this tastes light, which is what they were going for when they created the "session IPA" style, but with this beer the lightness tends to blur flavors together, with nothing standing out particularly well. It is the type of flavor you can have a lot of without killing your palate.

M: Light-bodied, with an airy, bready feel in-mouth and a hollow dry afterfeel. A bit chewy and sticky, but gentle enough to have a few. A definite session-feeling IPA.

O: Good for sipping a couple, and it might even hit the spot on a warm afternoon after doing some yard work. Of the recent crop of "session IPA" offerings, this one sits firmly in the middle of the pack; not too much of anything.
