A--copper in color with about an inch head
S--lots of pine coming through the nose. Hop forward with a bit of sweet scent to accompany
T--Hop bomb will please all hop lovers, with a well balanced malt finish to take the sting away from the bitterness.
M--medium, very smooth
O--Hands down one of my favorite IPAs. I was blown away the first time I tried this beer--hops smack you in the mouth but they manage to dissipate by the superb balance of the malts. This beer is a gateway to hoppy beers for someone who is scared away by hop bitterness. Well done Ithaca.

This is essentially an EC version of Stone IPA. Pale malt surrounded by pine, grass, and light pine cone. Bitter lemon and biscuit accompanying. Classic East Coast IPA, if not all American IPA. Drinkable, approachable, and simply lovely. Nose is light, but this beer is suitable for any IPA lover. Hop beginners welcome here...

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in November 2014.

Appearance: Deep amber, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a strong hops bitterness in the aroma. There is some sweet aroma, which contrasts with the hops for a nice aroma.

Taste: An interesting mix of hops and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex IPA, but with a little bit of sweetness. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting and complex IPA. There is a variety of flavors, and the hops do not overshadow the other flavors.
