I want to state that I've had this on tap at Southern Tier about 6 months ago and thought it was incredible. By far their best beer ever. However, THIS review is based on the newly released 6 pack bottles.

A- Same as on draft. Clear, yellow, thin, etc.
S- decent. Very very very faint hop profile. To me, it seemed the aroma changed, granted, before drinking.
T- I had to say out loud WTF. It's a complete 180 as what it was on tap at the brewpub. ZERO citrus. I mean, ZERO citrus. ZERO hops. Overcarbonated, extremely watery. Reminded me a lot of miller light. I'm very upset about this.
M- As aforementioned; overcarbonated (burning tongue and nose) and very very thin and watery.
O- Terrible. I hope they just changed their formula for this because I don't believe my tastes have changed. I was extremely excited to see this at the store a few days ago and now, I'm extremely pissed. The bottle has a DOB of 2/25 too so it couldn't have gone off. I drank a whole 6er over the past few days before making this review to confirm that it was THIS bad, and unfortunately, it is. I sent out a few bombers to friends about a month or two ago and they said it was also very good, so again, I certainly hope this was just a badly-packaged 6er...
