Pale golden colored body was typical of an IPA, and obviously attractive. The smell was grapefruit, orange, and other citrus fruits as well as contained a note of pine. The taste was where this beer truly came into its own, as there was a considerable complexity due to an interplay of pine resin, grapefruit pith, bitter orange, and juniper flavors. There was an undertone of sweetness evoking brown sugar as well. The finish was bittersweet and felt very extended. The body was medium dense and the mouthfeel soft. Well crafted, yet approachable. I look forward to year to year variations as the ingredients change.

I really like this beer. It's the first time in a while that I have drunk this much of one beer. Usually I'm an equal opportunity drinker, drinking a wide variety. Not in this case. If had this 2 or 3 times a week for a few weeks.

Poured into a pint glass. Dark golden within nice two finger creamy head. Really nice looking. Smell is slightly hoppy with a nice malt sweetness. Taste follow smell with a slightly hoppy start, citrus malt middle and creamy smooth finish with a nice slight citrus hop aftertaste. Really tasty beer.

Overall, this is a really good beer. Great taste, great abv, decent price point, and just plain enjoyable. Look forward to trying even more brews from this brewery.

Pours a nice orange semi translucent color with decent head. Very malty and floral smell. No pine or citrus hops in this one. Taste is very solid. Malty and sweet with some resinous hop qualities. Smooth and easy to drink with no bitterness in the finish. Overall I think this is a solid beer and I'd like to try again. I still am confused how APA is this is classified as an APA but at 8.1% level. I guess because its so malt forward.

This beer was a pleasant surprise, even though I already like Southern Tier's 2xipa. It pours a darker, ambery color, with a modest head. A great nose of hops, not over the top, but delicious. Definitely some tropical fruitiness in the smell, along with the classics. The taste follows suit nicely and it's notably non-bitter, and non-boozy, despite the 8%abv. Great finish, very refreshing. It won't knock your socks off, but a very solid beer!
