Pours into a nonic a clear deep bronze with a pretty sticky half finger white head atop.Aromas are of earthy and herbal hops,not a citric and pine bomb by any means,a bit of caramel and toast is there as well.More dryer earthy hops on the palate along just a little pine,not much frutiness here,some mild caramel/biscuit and toast with some more earth in the finish.To me it almost has a porter hop profile not an IPA profile,not bad but a little off. (451 characters)

4.1/5  rDev +12.6%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7.0%.

Appearance: The body has a hazy deep orange amber color with a thick creamy head on top. The head is light beige in color and has good retention. This makes lots of cool lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma has big grapefruity and orange like citrus rind character with lighter hints of peaches and mango.

Taste / Palate: The malt offers a nice layer of bready sweet that blends well with a solid citrusy and fruity hop presence. Hop bitterness slowly moves in and leads into the finish with some dank deep resinous hop flavor. The palate feels smooth and full which I would expect from a 7% beer. (715 characters)

This is one of my go-to IPA's. At 7% it packs a decent ABV and is also very drinkable. Has great flavor and aroma, and wonderfull amber-brown hue. This is a solid IPA that you will never go wrong with. (201 characters)

Really good at 7%, very smooth and drinkable... Nice hoppiness and a rather heavy malt bill for an IPA, which I like.... Sweet and balanced. I would really like to rank this higher, just stands out as a great session beer, but lacks that (proverbia)l 'GREAT FLAVOR' that other beers (think Two Hearted or Stone IPA) that kick your palate. A friend brought me this... Would love to visit Ellicottville Brewing Company~ (498 characters)

Beautiful head. Sea-foam like, with great retension and sticky lacing.

Oarangey sappy pine on the nose.

The taste is pine sap, orange rind, and a hint of grassy and verbal notes; a bit astringent on the finish, like herbal bitters. After taste has a suggestion of citrusy barnyard, but is overshadowed by bitterness. Malty, but not necessarily balanced.

medium bodied with great combination.

Overall a lackluster IPA that comes off unbalanced, with no underlet ng harmony or unifying character. (499 characters)
