look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours an orange-ish amber color, cloudy with slow forming off white head

S - Sweet malt character, with light piney hops

T - Very balanced malt and hop flavor, with the cascade hops predominately in the taste, light bitterness.

M - Moderate carbonation, smooth mouthfeel

O - A little bit too sweet for my liking, maybe this one finished a little high. Great balance, and hop flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A:Pours an almost clear copper/orange color with a one finger white head that dissipated rather quickly. Very sticky lacing formed around the glass.

S: Not as hoppy as expected, there is some apple and grapefruit as well as some caramel and bready malt.

T: A little bit of citrus fruit upfront, mostly grapefruit, with a bit of apple as well. Heavier malt backbone than I was expecting, some caramel and bread. Slightly bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight creaminess, and pretty smooth. No harshness at all.

O: Pretty good, but nothing out of this world. Not sure on how old the bottle is, since this one is pre-dating. Glad to see ST popping a date on their bottles now.

Pours a clear but hazy orange/gold with a one and a half finger off white creamy head. The aroma isn't jumping out at me. I get some cereal graininess, sweet malts, and light citrus and maybe mango. The taste is along the same lines as the smell, just more intense. Sweet malts hit you up front, the bitterness comes through in the middle and end, but the malty sweetness keeps it balanced the entire time. Mouthfeel is creamy. Overall, much better than the other Southern Tier IPA offerings. I would have liked to see more bitterness as this is a pretty sweet DIPA. My main complaint with Southern Tier IPAs is that they all seem to be too sweet. I love balanced IPAs,but this one is a little more malty than it is bitter. The 9.5% is definitely noticeable, but not unpleasant. Good DIPA and one that I would recommend to those who like sweeter DIPAs.
