2.65/5  rDev -26%
look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Labeled 3/11/14. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy dark golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that slowly fades and leaves nice retention and lacing. The aromas are pretty plain and subtle. Caramel malts are there with lots of grass. The aromas are pretty lackluster, I'm not going to lie. The flavors come alive, but they still aren't that impressive. I must say there's a solid bitterness going on though. Very earthy. More caramel. Subtle hints of pine. Very subtle hints of citrus. Drinks more like a pale ale than an IPA, in my opinion. Mouthfeel is nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's ultimately smooth and refreshing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's a clean beer, but really lacks anything that grabs the attention.

I'm a big fan of Ithaca, but this just doesn't work for me. I guess I expected a little more since they've always been able to do great stuff with hops. This is an easy drinking IPA like they suggest, it's just boring and forgettable for the most part.

A smooth, mild beer that is very refreshing on hot summer days. Don't expect a particularly complex, or even hoppy taste. It's very inoffensive, and would be a good IPA for people who don't love the bitterness and hoppyness of some IPAs. I'd definitely drink it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy orange brew, little head.

Yeast and citrus aroma, not unlike a tripel or a citrusy wheat beer.

Bitter, citrus, a hint of banana yeast, and a dry hay-like flavor. Tastes like a decent white or Belgian IPA.

Lively with moderate sting; very dry.

This is a decent, refreshing IPA. It's not outstanding, but it's a little different.

Bottle from Pin's. Saw it side-by-side with Flower Power, and decided to try something new. Guess I should've stuck with the FP.

Poured into a handy bell tulip, a hazy golden-orange color, with a small cap of white head; minimal retention and lacing. Unfortunate hints of a malt-bomb right away in the aroma, sugary sweetness, floral notes, somewhat medicinal. In the taste, dry bready malts, corn sugar, citrus juice, with a low-intensity earthy hops, and something of a medicinal off-flavor. Light-medium body, lower than average carbonation. Overall not very enjoyable. Would not get again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Extremely cloudy with an orange-dirty gold color. Small head but great lace on the glass.

Fresh citrus-like hop nose. Light malt far in the background.

Smooth flavor, especially up front. Slightly sweet, pale malt flavor initially. The hop is actually subtle until the swallow where it is dominant but not dominating. The aftertaste is balanced. The body and bubbles are typical for the style.

Serving type: on-tap
