Sister sent me a 22oz bomber of this from my hometown brewery. I've had this beer several times but just now getting around to reviewing it. Nice deep amber, copper pour with a modest quickly fading head and decent lacing. Huge malty sweet nose with hints of pine and candy. Tons of syrupy, sweet slighty toasted bitterness up front with some perfumy notes at the back of your tongue. For me it's borderline too sweet, but as you work your way through a bomber it mellows and balances out enough to make it quite enjoyable. The alcohol, as always with Southern Tier, is extremely well hidden. And for such a big, in your face hop monster, it's really quite drinkable, especially on a day like today when it's cold as hell outside. Can't think of a better way to stay warm then with a bomber of Southern Tier!

Poured undated 12 oz bottle into pint glass. This is excellent beer. It brings to mind "Pliney the Elder". The flavor profile is very similar. Pours a clear golden-yellow with a tinge of orange, with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Not a huge aroma, but its clean, floral and slightly dank, with some pineapple and peach. The taste is wonderful and just gets better the more you drink it. It's somewhat fruity and buttery with a perfect balance of sweet maltiness and huge hops but low bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and smooth with low carbonation, but still refreshing with well concealed alchohol. Overall, I'd say this is world class...a really great Imperial IPA.
