This apa pours a handsome amber hue with a frothy white head that lasts well longer than most and gives way to a nice film and lacing. There is a ton of sediment in this pour. If you are into crystal clear filtered beers, this is not for you. The aroma is very hoppy with tons of pine notes, a little citrus, tropical fruit, and grass. There is also a very nicely balanced underlying malt character. The ale is definitely medium bodied and coats the mouth quite well. The flavor is very fresh and hoppy. It seems much closer to an ipa than an apa. There is a ton of pine and a little citrus up front in this one. There is some malt but it is not as present in the mouth as it was on the nose. This is a damn good beer and Southern Tier continues to impress me. My only complaint is that if you are going to make a varietal ale celebrating just one malt and one hop strain, then advertise and promote what varieties those are. Print it on the bottle what varieties you are using. Other than that, great job.

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.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a healthy two-finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Nice Mosaic tropical and citrus fruit hop aroma, light caramel malt, a little dank. Flavor is sweet caramel and bready malt, tropical and orange family citrus; finishes with citrus and grapefruit rind hops and lingering caramel malt. Medium bodied with some creaminess, nice mouthfeel. This is my kind of APA (I'd rate it as high as a IPA), caramel malty and nice juicy hops. Some folks like lots of hops with a light malt body and this isn't for them. I cannot think of a time when Southern Tier let me down. They tend to be a bit on the sweet side, but that works for me if there is good malt to support it, as with this ale. Really like it.
