I've been introduced to the Southern Tier craft right at where it is all brewed in Lakewood, NY. Being a novice Beeradvocate, I will rate this beer at a 5 because it is the IPA that started it all for my new found palate!

too strong. a good IPA that is overpowered by its undrinkablity due to high ABV.

Darker Amber in color with a generous bulbous head.

Aromas are faint. Malt and citrus. Graham crackers.

Very malt forward followed by sugary sweet. Citrus more in the orangey way that is barely bitter. I like malt but this is really exasperating.

Very mild carbonation if any and light.

Man, I was hoping to get into a great American double and this has disappointed. Malt heavy, refined white sugar sweet and too much orange for me. The only double here is the malt.

It's probably one of the best beers, you can really taste the citrus and caramel malts. It's strong but not to bittery. I love bitterness but it's nice still

Aroma is malty with some grapefruit hoppiness. Taste is very good and complex, sweet and not overly happy. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy and creamy. Clean bitter aftertaste that isn't dry at all. Alcohol is well hidden on this smooth drinker. Overall this is a great warm weather beer, an ipa that won't dry you out! Very similar to 90 minute ipa, I need a side by side.
