Pours golden with white head in new DFH IPA glass.

Great lemon, grapefruit and pine notes.

Taste is grapefruit, pine and sweet malts. Nice bitterness lingers on the palate.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall this is an excellent DIPA.

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a light hazy dark orange, with 2 inches of head, and good lacing down the glass.

Smells strongly of citrus fruits, bitter grapefruit and leafy hops.

Similar- tons of hop flavors with low bitterness. Some floral hop tones, with a ton of orange, pineapple and grapefruit hop flavors, ending in grassy and piney hop flavors. Just a huge spectrum of hop flavors here. Slightly sweet malt flavor is washed aways by tons of hops.

Medium bodied, creamy, sticky mouthfeel up front then finishes dry. Very drinkable and well carbonated.

Southern Tier is known for their sweet stouts and pumpkin beers- but they also know to get some great hop flavor. Well recommended.
