Let me start with just stating how outstanding this brew is. Appearance: Ruby amber brown with a nice creamy tan head leaves a good amount of lacing not too shabby at all very nice appearance going down. Aroma: Piney hops awesome aromatics here huge caramel malts giving a roasted malt character that's well needed in the wintertime. Taste: Deliciously spicy this is where it's at the hops play their role down to the T with the caramel malt presence tying it all together what a dream beer Southern Tier strikes again my favorite new micro of the year by far. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with slightly oily texture just due to the amount of hops playing a role in this brew. Drinkability: Perfect winter in my eyes not too sweet perfect hop profile a masterful job done by an inscenduary brewing team up in New York some where.

Eye Candy: Dark copper, reminds me Weyerbacher Autumn. Very carbonated, half full glass with thick pillowy head. Finally filled glass: retention throughout with superb lacing and hop clumping. Small quanity of rising carbonation bubbles at the lower depths.

The Nose Knows: Sugar corn like sweetness (corn pops ?) that rapidly transitioned into bitter resinous piney hops.

Tongueland: Very acrid and bitter, not ESB bitter. Thick and velvety. Very warming. Alcohol is hidden cold and emerges when warmed. Hops are hidden under the initial taste. Ends honey sweet and smooth that transitions into their signature combination of bitter with a dash of pepper.

Bender Factor: At 7.5 ABV, this is the way to go when opening up Christmas presents. Another stellar offering from Southern Tier. The hops tame down when cellared after 5 months.
