I was so glad to find this in my first Box of Hops that I had to rush downtown to get another couple boxes. Wish I had a case of just this gem of Ithaca Beercraft!
Bottles have very tasty sediment well worth stirring up gently before pouring high into a pint glass to get thick fine-bubbled foam very thick and plastic bulging up over pint glass rim and settling to thin scrim leaving persistent lace. Turbid orange SRM color around 3 on my chart, pastel vanilla orangesickle. Appearance so pretty I want to watch one while I drink another
Smells of lots of grapefruity hops, yeast, no malt or ethanol in the nose.
Tastes totally dynamite for IPA from tongue tip to back of gullet: perfect complex bittering leaves hops tanning the throat hide for many minutes of blissful aftertaste. Goes great with sourdough beer pretzels and Limburger.
Mouthfeel chewy, dense, persistent, full, rich, imperial, leaving juicy well-whacked salivation and craving for more.
Overall I'm just sad this isn't a steady year-round brew. Tastes like it will last several months, but I wish we didn't have to wait till Oct 2014 for the next batch.

Appearance: Golden amber color, clear with about a one finger head (did not pour vigorously) ( Describe the beer's color, clarity, head retention and lacing.

Smell: The smell is perhaps the nicest most inviting beer smell ever. Most prevalent is grapefruit and citrus. Extremely inviting.

Taste: Taste follows the smell which is awesome.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: A great DIPA worth seeking out. I will definitely buy again and I encourage everyone to try.

pours hazy gold with a thick head. seems to glow in the glass. very hazy, almost like a lighter colored apple cider.

aroma is fantastic, such strong hops.

taste is amazing, one of the best beers i've ever had. strong citrus flavor, easy drinking. has a great bitterness and fruit flavor to it.

overall this is amazing. one of my new favorites. such a beautiful looking beer and the taste is outstanding.
