Poured from a 12 oz. bottle: hazy, golden-yellow with a sustained, creamy white-head. There are sediment particles floating at the bottom of the glass.
Very strong aromatics; sharp citrusy and piney notes explode from the bottle. These aromas are sustained after pouring the ale into a pint glass.
While the hops dominate the hop profile, this ale is surprisingly balanced with robust, bittersweet tropical fruit and piney hints followed by a very nice malt sweetness. The refreshing lemony flavor beckons one to keep sipping.
The body is light to medium with a soft, creamy and clean mouth feel. Just the right amount of carbonation keeps this one zesty.
Of the several ales I have tried from Southern Tier, this is possibly the best. They have brought all the elements together to make a very refreshing and quaffable ale, while maintaining flavor and a little complexity.

Poured into a nonic a clear lighter dull golden with a fluffy,sticky one finger white crown atop,the bottle says to decant into a glass,I saw no need.Aromas of grassy/herbal hops over top of nutty malt,not real big but pleasant nose wise.Herbal notes along with a tinge of red onion on the palate,a little tea and mint is noticable,a firm lightly sweet nutty biscuit base holds up to the hops.This a nice APA not gigantic hops but a minty herbal approach that makes it really drinkable,the maltiness is big enough for non hopheads to like this beer as well.Nice job here.
