A - A nice, clear yellow-amber color with foamy, light, white head which laces decently to the glass and is moderate in size.

S - Yeast, hops, citrus, some pine, grapefruit.

T - Follows those nose pretty much to the point, but a little more vibrant than it smelled. A nice tasting beer. Hops are somewhat heavy but not tastebud-numbing. Pleasant.

M - Good, balanced sip. Appropriately carbonated. Moderately dry. Hops are in a sophisticated balance such that each sip tastes the same as the previous. Nicely done.

D - A solid beer. I'm not real familiar with Southern Tier, but I would get this again. This beer has earned enough cred with me to go back to the brewery for something else, at the very least.

The motto of Southern Tier stresses a passion for "vigorously" hopped beer, and one taste of this double IPA will really give you a feel for how sincerely they have stuck to it. The color and smell are as bold and emotive as anything you will taste from the IPA family, and the taste is everything you would expect given the quality of the appearance and the nose. Uncompromising and superb.
