Nice deep copper, ruby pour with nice two finger head and great lacing. The smell was bigger and hoppier than I had expected. But it is Southern Tier so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Piney earthiness with some bready malts mixed in. The taste had a unique toasty earthiness to it as well. The bitterness was overpowering on the first few sips, but the malty sweetness appeared from nowhere to balance it out nicely. This is a really unique beer. I was ready to downgrade the drinkability at first, but it just kept improving to where I really wanted another. Southern Tier just keeps rolling out great beers.
