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.

I live 15 minutes from Southern Tier Brewing Company, so it's always nice to pick up a keg right from the place in which the beer was brewed. More times then not I'm drinking this beer fresh, so my review might be bias. Great APA, with citrus notes of grapefruit and apricot taking over the aroma as well as the taste of the beer. Mildly hoppy. Reminds me of Founders All Day IPA in taste. Once in awhile I will notice inconsistency in the taste of the beer from batch to batch, but this is a great summertime beer, one I usually have on tap, and one I've been enjoying since I had STBCs trial run of this stuff a few years back.
