Excellent aroma, big, clean, citrus and troical fruit aromas. Juicy ripe fruit.

Nice citrus hop taste, slight pine, slight troical notes. Beautiful array of hops, not much in terms of a malt background. Very clean tasting.

Nice and enjoyable, revisiting this one after a long hiatus. Sometimes you forget how solid some of the standard year round offerings are.

This is my first review since it is now required. I feel completely inadequate to the task. I was looking forward to this but it just didn't thrill me. I am trying to figure out what characteristics I like so I will note a few things from Southern Tier's website:

FERMENTATION: Ale yeast, four types of hops, three types of malts
COLOR: Deep gold
EFFERVESCENCE: Generous carbonation, thirst-quenching
NOSE: Citrus, floral hops, a bit piney
FLAVOR: Grapefruit, bitter lemon, doughy sweetness
BITTERNESS: Medium-high
BODY: Medium bodied and smooth, resinous

Fairly average dbl. IPA,not in love nor do I hate it.It's okay but I would not buy it again. But, at the same price as Corona for 6 pack, maybe I will.
