4.23/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
12 oz bottle poured into mason jar
A: Yellow, straw and light orange. Translucent. 2 finger head that lingers to a slight lacing around the edge.
S: Big citrus, pineapple, papaya and earthy hop aromas mixed with very slight caramel malts on the backbone.
T: BIG hop flavor from start to finish. Almost no malt to speak of. Tropical fruits: mango, pineapple, papaya and a nice grassy, pine undertone. DIPA to the roots. Long lasting bitterness that leaves you wanting more and more.
M: Medium bodied, very drinkable.
O: Very solid DIPA. Ithaca never seems to disappoint. I definitely like this the most out of the 3 limited brews in the Box of Hops. Truly Flower Power's bigger brother, which has been one of my favorite IPA's for years. It is a nice west coast meets east coast DIPA. I truly hope they make offer this in a 4 pack or 6 pack, at the very least a bomber!

4.04/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a standard pint glass: color is gold/copper, opaque, dense looking, head is bright white, large bubbles, dissipates to a ring and spots with some lacing on the glass.
Smell is a big hop blast: mostly citrus, grapefruit prominent, some lighter earthy and pine notes; malt is light, maybe some toast and pale malt.
Taste is big hop forward flavor, more muddled mix of citrus, earth, pine notes; hops are bitter and floral concurrently, with some pleasant tasting as it warms; malt is background, some sweetness, some toast and biscuit. Hop/malt flavor hides stronger abv.
Mouthfeel is pretty balanced for this ale, good bitterness and malt sweetness; abv is not detracting.
Overall, a very solid dipa, nice abundant aroma, good flavor, good strength and good mouthfeel.
