12 oz bottle, date stamped on the neck is 140709. Bottled just a few days ago!
A: Clear body, thin white head with decent retention. Color is pretty light, typical of a dry hop bomb.
S: Floral hop bomb. Nice citrus notes as well. Nice stuff.
T: Juicy hops with a nice malt backbone. A fantastic example of an American IPA. Pretty dry, not too bitter, but packs tons of hop flavor.
M: Good carbonation. At 7.5%, this is practically a double. Alcohol remains hidden.
O: Been wanting to try this for a long time, and it definitely lives up to the hype. This is up there with Two Hearted for me.

Oh my heavens, a beer I've had a hundred times before. And I hope to have a hundred a hundred times again.
This is the real deal ladies and gentlemen, and I am proud of this local product. Smells like a pinecone mated with a citrus and developed some kind of wonderful bastard spawn. Tastes even better, this one leaves no lie between nose and tongue. To be honest, I can say more about the nose than the taste as I find it hard to stop sniffing it. When I take a swig, I am thinking of all the more exclusive and higher priced IPAs I've had. My quest for the hard-to-come-by and hyped-up has led me to neglect a true jewel, right underneath my fingertips. Never again. Ithaca, my hat is off to you, this is a masterpiece.
