4.13/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Wow. This is a subtle, sessionable (as long as the digestion can take it) beer that is full of character (not a beer at all, of course, it's an ale, but it is a good substitute for a beer - read on).

It is a perfect cloudy and somewhat foamy yellowish concoction. Soupy and dicey looking, as it should be. The aroma is very full and hoppy.

The taste is less than you would expect from what you are holding in your hand, but it comes out nicely in a smooth, satisfying finish.

It's nice when a beer has this much character without having to hit you up side the head with it.

I also had it on draft yesterday (11/27/2013) and it had a similar character, but a tad smoother.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy pineapple-yellow body with a small white head. Looks lively. Silky lacing.
Smells lightly of orange rind and grassy perfume, with malts underneath.
Tastes just like it smells. Finishes a bit dry, but refreshing nonetheless.
Mouthfeel is soft and the hops impart a pleasant bite.
This is a lighter, refreshing style I don't visit too often. Great after the lawn-cut.

3.15/5  rDev -19.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - Hazy golden color with a thick white foam and floating yeast. Steady stream of carbonation floating to the top.

S - Citrus and floral hops but the citrus comes through the strongest.

T - Pretty tame Pale ale. The Citrus hops are at the fore front with some pale malts. Not a ton of complexity in flavor but pretty easy to drink.

M - Mouth feel is very good in my opinion. Almost creamy. I hate beers that come through watery and that is certainly not a concern with this one. Also a little bit of carbonation on the tongue does wonders for this beer.

O - In all fairness Pale Ales are not my favorite style but this one is pretty sessionable. If you really enjoy the style it is worth a try. Its interesting how tame this beer is for Southern Tier, a brewery notorious for going over the top with sweetness, flavors, ABV and just about anything everything else.

Poured a hazy brass hue with a one ginger foamy white head. There was decent Laing and retention.

The snell featured a light herbal hop.

The taste offered soft pale malts and a light herbal hop spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side. of the style.

Overall a decent and neutral APA.
