Got a growler of this at Ithaca Beer today. Poured into a pint glass.
A - pours a honey-like amber with a white head. The glass has solid lacing after each sip, more of a lace coating than the usual catacombs.
S - intense fruity smell - pineapple, orange, and grapefruit.
T - A very hoppy beer with a unique hop character. Follows the nose with pineapple, grapefruit, and pine, with a significant bitterness and a nice malt backbone. Slightly dry, bitter finish.
M - good feel with a nice body, not too heavy or too light, with some hop oiliness. Carbonation is as expected.
D - dangerously drinkable for a 7+ ABV beer. No booziness at all.
Overall, probably Ithaca Beer's best offering and one of the best IPAs in the east coast, heck, in the country.
I should mention that there is a big difference between the on-tap and bottled version of this. The bottled version would probably be in the 4.2-4.3 range.

This is an excellent beer. Strong and drinkable IPA with a lot of lingering hop taste. It is a bittersweet bomb of goodness.
At the front end is good fresh hop taste. Great aroma once the bottle is cracked. The title does not lie, you are getting the heavy floral hop-stravaganza with this beer. This is an IPA made with care and the flavor is fresh . . . almost no extra taste, just delicious if you like tasty IPAs.
Works well with pizza and the beach. Highly recommended.

This is hands down a top 5 best IPA out there. The citrus notes after a quite potent bite from the hops is a perfect blend of happiness. It is a little pricey, but the juice is absolutely worth the squeeze. I have had twonkegs of this delicious beer over the last two years, and it is quite simply the best out there.
