The carbonation was a bit screwed up, but oh well. Smell is sticky and honey sweet (exactly what I expect after having the oak-aged). The smell also holds a bit of spicy hops as well. The taste like has a very odd hop flavor. Its like a spicy, herbal, almost peppery feeling. The only other place Ive seen it is a local brewery (Carolina Brewery Firecracker Pale). The malt is much mroe subdued than I expected (in a very good way).

Had this on tap at Bulldog in Yurakucho, Tokyo. Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy bronze brew with a thick crepe-looking head. Amazing rich bitter hops with a sweetness of miso paste and sweet caramel malts. Aroma matches following the hop side more closely. The lacing slides down the glass and glitters like a fireworks shower explosion. Sweetness of miso and caramel peanuts remains in the aftertaste with a bit of excess gas. Overall, an amazing strong IPA with its 125 IBUs that will lead me to more Southern Tiers. Easily one of my favorite IPAs ever.

No enjoy by date on the bottle; but, the malt and hops bill is listed on the label. Cool...
Slow pour into a standard pint glass.
A: No head formed during the pour. The brew is a light copper color with just a touch of a golden hue. It is also very clear.
S: The aroma is mild, and consists of a grapefruit and orange citrus hops. There is also just a hint of sweet malt, and a bit of booziness, too.
T: The taste is earthy hops and a bit of citrus, along with just enough sweet caramel-like malt to take the harsh edge off the bitterness. There is also a little alcohol heat, too.
M: The body is on the heavier side of medium. It is also pretty smooth for a 9% beer.
O: A pretty good IPA. It has a pleasanlty strong earthy hops flavor, which is different from the aroma. It is a good beer, but I might not go too far out of my way to find it again. But, glad I tried it.
