12oz. bottle courtesy of NewBrewBB (thanks Brett). Best before January notched on the label. Pours an orange-gold hue with a loose, quarter-inch, off-white head and a semi-hazy clarity. Head dissipates into a bull's eye dollop and a creamy band around the shoulders. Some spots and strands of lacing present during the tasting. Nose is fairly subdued - some citrus (perhaps tangerine) and herbal notes and a suggestion of the malt backbone. Taste consistent with nose - flavors are more prominent but come off a bit muddled, with a bitterness towards the back the drops off between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pleasant carbonation that falls just short of lively. Texture has a slight oiliness to it. Overall, a decent DIPA with a fairly well-hidden ABV; however, this one doesn't really knock my socks off.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a short airy white head that settled into a light ring.

Citrus aroma, mainly grapefruit, slight grass. The aroma is kind of subtle, I was expecting a bigger punch. It seems like a nice aroma but its just very subtle.

The taste is of a mild malty sweetness. Not heavy like some DIPAs can be. The hops provide a bright citrus note and a blast of pine. Grapefruit notes, perhaps some orange. Bitter but flavorful. Could use a bit more citrus notes.

The beer has a moderate to full body with tingly carbonation. Great balance for a DIPA. Has a lingering piney bitterness in the end.

A good but not great DIPA. I would like to see more citrus and buddy hop flavor. I appreciate the balance though.

Poured into a Tulip

A - Hazy two tone orange with a nice one finger head.

S - Right when i opened the bottle it poured out... Sugared Grapefruit and pine. A really juicy citrus smell to it.

T - This is real good. super hoppy but balanced well. As your swallowing alcohol comes in slightly then leaves. Ends on a floral Earthy hop note. mellowed by sweet malt.

M - Medium mouth feel and well carbonated.

Overall, for a DIPA this is very drinkable and mighty tasty. A really solid beer put out by Ithica, yet again.
