Received as an extra from 6daysbottomocean.
12 oz bottle poured into my snifter glass
A - Golden with about a half finger width of head. It doesn't leave much lacing on my glass, indicating there aren't a bunch of hop oils.
S - Good smell. Initial bit of tropical fruits, specifically sweet pineapple and nectarines. After that, it dies down and lots of sweet malts are leftover. I imagine this'll be a somewhat malt-dominated ipa.
T - Hey, guess what...there are malts! Sadly, another IPA that misses the mark a bit, in my opinion. There is some grapefruit bitterness, but not the smack in the mouth bitterness I like.
M - Slightly under medium body and kind of high on the carbonation side.
D - It's good, but not great. Plenty of options here in San Diego I'd go for. I'm happy to try it, but I'm glad for the alternative I have here.

Great gold and copper color. Good foam when poured. The smell of the hops and the malts are very distinct. Great. The taste is very hoppy at first with that long lasting aftertaste. Very bubbling which quickly dissipates, leaving that good bitter taste on the tongue. Overall is a great IPA. Will be buying this again.

Wonderful golden/light amber pour with a nice frothy head. Smell is hoppy but not super strong. Taste confused me at first, being an imperial ipa I expected a strong spicy hop taste but it was a very smooth finish almost a malty presence. Southern tier never disappoints and every should give this beer a chance.
