Great floral aroma, similar to hopslam but a little more subtle. Taste was clean, not overly hoppy and the alcohol taste was very very tame for its percentage. Overall a solid beer, great alternative to some of the IPA's I have been drinking lately. Would definitely be something I could chill with for a while.

Pours a clear golden yellow. White head, with good lacing n the glass.
Nose is hops, all the way. Citrus hops, some caramel malts. Apricot and Lemon.
Taste is sweeter than the smell lets on. More of a malt backbone, then finishes with a fruity hops taste. The bitterness comes in late.
Finishes dry, a bit stringent. Medium bodied. Grapefruit flavor lingers.
Overall, a great IPA, but not an elite one.

This beer was fantastic! Hops and plenty of ’em! Poured a beautiful sungold color and had a quickly dissipating head with a slight bit of lacing. Leaves behind a medium malt body and lots of dry beautiful hops. The malt holds it up in the glass while the hops bite you. It has a big nose and smells great. A little citrus and clover honey on the palate and dry as well. This beer is dry hopped five times throughout the brewing process. It’s invigorating. The name is also very cool. This beer is on my list of "I gotta have some of that."

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a long lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade, caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy hops, caramel malt, and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and balanced. Amazingly delicious IPA.

Enjoyed this from a good nature snifter.
A: golden, hazy, consistent carbonation running up the inside surface of the glass. A small head web poured disappears into a thin, lacy ring along the surface of the beer. Great looking brew.
S: citrus upfront, with a consistant yet mild bittering aspect from the hops. I wonder how the dry hopped version differs in this category. Pine and resin dealing through as well. It's a nice smelling beer, but nothing trend pusdy stands out compared to similar IPAs.
T: very smooth and crisp. Hoppy, resin, citrus all hit you at once. Floral aspects more subtle than I initially thought they'd be. I mean, it is called flower power.
M: extremely refreshing. Could enjoy this all year long, hot or cold, rain or shine. I would say medium to light in body with a decent yet not overpowering.
O: one of my favorite IPAs I can readily get in my home town. Definitely my favorite brew from Ithaca.

Best before August 2013
A – Light copper color. Head is tall, but recedes quickly, white in color. Lacing is nice and sticky throughout.
S – Lightly hoppy here, the notes are mostly subdued, though they are there. Notes of dried apricot, mango and ginger. Fresh lemon juice, grapefruit, and pine.
T – Somewhat sweet, caramel and crystal malts abound. Though the bright piney citrus notes do make quite an appearance on the finish, which is quite dry and astringent. This is dry, though remains complex.
M – Medium bodied, with more than ample carbonation. This is refreshing and tasty, very drinkable.
O – A nice IPA here, errs on the lighter side, and it does have a nice drinkability to it...very smooth. The hop notes are very crisp and clean, pine and ginger here, as well as nice, albeit light, grapefruit notes as well.
