look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

APPEARANCE: Bright orange and crisp looking. The eggshell colored head is comprised of a variety of bubble sizes, but most are tiny, including thousands of tiny bubbles streaming up the sides of the glass. The tightly packed, small bubbles give the head an almost creamy look.

SMELL: Pine and grass aromas are strong here with a touch of citrus to round it out. This is all hops on the nose, malt need not apply.

TASTE: Hops still dominate the flavor here especially at the beginning of the sip and in the back side of the palate. The more harsh, grassy tones hit first and then slowly transition to pine, then a big dose of orange and finally into a caramel/honey malt flavor.

MOUTHFEEL: Even towards the end of this glass there are still tons of tiny bubbles darting around this beer and they provide quite a tickle for an otherwise not so carbonated beer. The body is light and basically, the feel here can be described as playful. Very nice.

OVERALL: Southern Tier doesn’t screw around. This is not a terribly complex DIPA, it’s just a good one. Really good. Can’t wait until they get out here to CO.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer comes in a golden amber. A clear light orange honey color with a one finger head.

The aroma has lots of sugary sweet orange, some tangerine, ruby grapefruit, some hops, and caramel sweet malt.

The flavor has sweet grapefruit at first, then some caramel to balance it, but very little. Then a hit of pine, and then finally the finish is a super bitter orange or grapefruit white pith. The bitterness is really pronounced on this.

The body is light medium.

This bottle was super fresh at 13 days old. Brew date was on bottom, under the label. It’s a really easy drinking, clean beer and more my style without much caramel sweetness.
