Poured into an imperial pint glass
A- pours a clear and pale golden color with a two-finger foamy white head that retains nicely after the pour, eventually leaving big patches of lace behind
S- classis Mosaic aromas of mango, earthy pine, tropical fruit, citrus rind and herbal notes. Lightly toasted cracker-like malt
T- tropical fruity hops meshes with notes of ripe mango, pineapple, tangerine and stone fruit, it's like a fruit cocktail. Malty sugary fructose-like sweetness gives a touch of caramel and continues sweet to the finish, leaving me wanting more, with lingers of pine, citrus and some herbal spicy notes
M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy and biting mouthfeel and a smooth finish, alcohol is hidden quite well, leaving only a trace of warmth
O- quite impressive that they packed this much flavor into a brew with one hop and one malt. Classic mosaic flavors and aromas mix nicely with a thirst quenching malty sweetness that continues to the finish. One of the best pale ales I've had in a while

Southern Tier 2XONE 2014 inaugural edition has a medium, yellowish head, a gold-orange, bubbly appearance, with powdery suspended sediment, and lots of webbed lacing left behind. The aroma is of fairly intense hop resin and underlying white bread. Taste is of even more intense hop oil, but this is not harsh or particularly strong, just noticeable. Also, the white, sweet bread is picked up. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Southern Tier 2XONE 2014 finishes puckering, easy going, and warming in the body. Overall, I don’t think this is a particularly differentiated ale, but I still recommend it.
