I am a big fan of IPAs. This one has a fantastic bouquet (better than most) and a nice taste without too much of a bite. Don't be fooled though, you are drinking a fully flavored beer. Frankly, this could be a beer you enjoy in the North Carolina beach heat (not a bunch but a few). The alcohol taste is there but Minimal. The finish is there and lasts as I expect and enjoy in an IPA.

Appearance: Clear, dark golden color with one finger of head that fades to a ring with some spotty lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malt with lots of citrus notes, mostly grapefruit rind.

Taste: Creamy malt sweetness quickly overwhelmed by a powerful blast of bitterness, which is pithy with some light citrus notes that perk it up. There's some soapiness on the back end with some more of the malt coming through leading to a lingering finish that is mildly nutty.

The Rest: Big body, bold hops, fantastic beer. I've liked just about every 2x beer Southern Tier had done, and this one is no different.
