4.35/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a Trois Pistoles snifter (that I'm carrying around on tour). Label notched Best Before O (october, obviously), though the year was not included. I'm assuming it's a fresh beer though.

Got this at The Lemon Grove in Youngstown, OH. Had to try it out since I know the wife of Greg Graffin (singer, Bad Religion) works at Ithaca Beer Co. They're my favorite band, so this was a nice little random find.

Appearance - Dark cloudy brown with a hint of ruby backlighting. Big two finger tan head with good retention.

Smell - Mild hop. The hop is mostly spicy, and not so much musky, which is a great change-up. Delicate malt; some banana is faintly detectable.

Taste - A balanced explosion of flavor in the first sip. Moderately hoppy. A good type of astringency for once. Totally fits the beer. Lemon peel.

Mouthfeel - Clean and refreshing and palate cleansing, as if it were light bodied. But not watery, especially because of the slightly chewy head. The head really helps balance this beer. I recommend a high pour in a good glass to keep it around as long as possible - but that goes without saying.

Overall Drinkability - Pleasantly surprised by this beer.
