Anything by Southern Tier that I have not had a chance to try yet is an immediate purchase for me at this point. After being blown away by their imperial series and impressed by everything else (except the raspberry brew), I am all for trying another production.

Pours a crystal clear straw gold with a nice white head that has some staying power. Nose is perfumed floral hops in abundance, but not shoving it all down, errr...up your nose. Flavor has a nice balance to it, though it is a bit hop forward. Mild bitter tone there. More than mild, but not overly pronounced leafy character as well. Feel has a pretty full carbonation to it and a decent liquid body. A definite fall time brew. Even though it is still summer weather, I drink this on and feel like fall is almost on me. Another good one by ST.

Poured clear pale gold with a big coarse white head that laced the glass nicely. Aroma is hoppy in a fresh and inviting way. Taste is fresh and invigorating, with just enough hops for me, and a nice bracingly bitter finish.

I have a feeling this one might not age or travel well. But here in Upstate NY it tastes really good.

I recieved this years bottle from a case swap in PA.

A - Pours a golden/orange color into my pint glass with a little foam that quickly dissipates.

S - A hint of citrus and grassy hops

T - The citrus hits me big time with some nice hoppy flavor

M/D - I really enjoy this one and could get myself into trouble drinking many of these in a night.
