On tap at the Blind Tiger in Manhattan.

Amber color with thick white head that lingers well in pint.

Smell is as the name suggests, a floral car-bomb. Nice lemon, and mango notes.

Taste is lemon, mango and sweet malts. Good resinous hoppiness. Nice bitterness in finish. Not overpowering. Great balance.

Mouthfeel is smooth and mediun bodied with nice carbonation.

Overall this is almost perfect. Would love to see this in Mississippi.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle, best by January 2013. Served at around 45F.

Pours pretty hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves tons of lacing and recedes to a small cap.

Very floral hop aroma along with some citrus, grapefruit rind, pineapple, some bready malt as well. Good to very good strength.

Flavor is juicy, chewy hops, a lot of tangerine, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, bit of apricot, just enough malt backbone to balance things out with a touch of sweetness then finishes with a wave of strong bitterness. Minimal alcohol. Super-tasty IPA!

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Magnificent IPA. Super juicy. Tons of hops and bitterness. Just what I like in the style! A real treat, wish I could get this on the regular! Gonna be sad to see this one go. :(

12oz bottle pour

A-pours a golden orange color... thick white head .... sticky blotting of lacing to the glass

S- hints of mango, grapefruit, sugar candy in the nose... pine sap and buttery malt in the back

T- I get a slurry of grapefruit and sappy pine... strong malt backing for strength...

M- lingering dryness... medium bodied... fizzy carbonation... buttery back drop for a smooth creamy some what finish to a dry lingering

O- a good offering from Ithaca... good balance with good flavor... one of the better ipa's but not very easy to come across
