I really liked this, I saved it for about 8 months or so and finally decided to break it out. I was a little worried about the flavor being a little compromised from this bottle because I had it in the fridge and had to move. It was in the fridge then went back down to room temp during the move, it happened again after taking it to a a friends for his birthday but we didn't end up drinking it then either so it went back down to room temp again. So this bottle survived two to major temperature changes. Well to the appraisal. From a bottle poured into a Sam's perfect pint glass. This beer had a great look to it, slightly darker than a normal IPA, almost a quality lager. Had a golden color, not completely clear with the slightest of slightest haze. Had some pretty good lacing to it too, lasted the entire drink. Smells is good, has a nice strong hoppy smell to it. Tastes great nice strong and refreshing hoppy taste. The taste lingers on a bit which is really nice. Had very good mouthfeel and drinkabiliy as well. Very nice drink to have, especially on a nice summer or warm spring day. Great brew from Southern Tier, highly recommended.

I loved the oaked version of this ale so I thought I'd try its originator. This one pours a beautiful hazy copper color with a thick off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is malty with a slight hoppy bitterness. This bottle was born more than a year ago so the hop notes have subsided and left a rich malty beer almost reminiscent of a scotch ale more than an ipa. The flavor further confirms this opinion. Id love to try a fresh bottle of this ale because even an older one is impressive.
