Poured from a bottle into an Ithaca Pint glass straight from the source.
Appearance: Pours a deep golden color. Not as Amber colored as many IPA's. 1 finger sudsy head that sticks around for a minute or two. T
Smell: Grapefruits and floral scents are dominant. Not as piney as a lot of IPAs.
Taste: Grapefruits again. Classic taste for an IPA. If you arent an IPA lover, you may still like this beer. It's got a strong malt character. If you do like IPA's, then you'll likely LOVE this beer. Classic bittersweet IPA flavor.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, but it still goes down smooth. I'd say it's light bodied for the style. Refreshing is what I think of when I gulp this.
Drinkability: No question about it, even at 8% I'd down a few of these no problem. There is no trace of the alcohol in the taste and that for me is a + to drinkability when it comes to IPAs.
Overall: I had it first at the brewery in Ithaca. I loved it then, and I can honestly say it is just as good from the bottle. Really wish this was available in TX.

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.
