look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a medium golden amber with two fingers of foamy white head that fades quickly, leaving splotchy lacing in its wake.

Smell: Pine, some oak, and some nice spiciness up front. This is followed by some sweet malt, caramel, and a touch of citrus.

Taste: Spicy up front with a load of pine and fresh hops, followed by some lemon and grapefuit, a bit of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, nice bitterness and carbonation. Goes down easily.

Overall: Yet another good beer from Southern Tier. Haven't had anything from these guys that I don't like!

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Harpoon IPA glass.

a: Crystal clear amber with an inch tall white head which receded to even surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Nothing much

t: Hops forward over light malt backbone. Enough hops to register easily but not enough to linger on the tongue very long. Actually more hoppy and less malty than any other ESB I have ever had. An American take no doubt.

m: Light. Darker color is the only hint that this is not a summer IPA.

o: Pretty good as a fall IPA, but too many other good ones out there to search this one out again.
