On tap at Lord Hobo, which was neat because I didn't know Ithaca kegged any of the Box of Hops beers.

Pours fine. Smells deeply resinous. Which is fine, but this was sampled alongside a handful of other, excellent IIPAs and the lack of balance and variegation was a little disappointing.

Tastes more or less like it smells: mango nodes up front rushing quickly into thick, piney hops and ending with syrupy malt. Not bad at all, but just not up to snuff with top-tier double IPAs.

DATE TASTED: December 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: La Fin du Monde... OCCASION: New Year’s Eve starting out right!... APPEARANCE: pale peach/orange, hazy body with pillow-soft white head that laces substantially... AROMA: thick mango and orange that cut the nostrils; secondary lemon and pepper make for a rather tantalizing aroma... PALATE: whoo! full-bodied, aggressively effervescent attack on the tongue, but quickly it mellows to a superbly sippable smoothness ...TASTE: a bitter hop explosion of orange and spruce that hits hard; palate-cleansing intensity ... OVERALL: well-disguised alcohol that heats up late; among the greats in a "Box of Hops" that has no distinguished offerings--all four are stars in their own right... drinks cleanly, flexes its muscle, and buzzes with its strength...
