The beer pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with 1/2 an inch of fluffy white head that dissipates into a thin blanketing. The nose is sweet and malty with good yeast fruit forward and a touch of bitter hops (not distinctly citrusy/piney/earthy/fruity). So far everything about this beer screams "balanced and drinkable," and I certainly was not disappointed by the taste. Upfront maltiness transitions into a well-balanced bitter, yeasty, semi-dry finish. It has great carbonation and a light-medium body (heavier than a regular APA) followed by a lingering, citrusy bitterness that pulls everything together. I'm glad to see ST getting into new styles and think this beer is worth a try.

Bottled on 3/7/13. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. This pale ale is bottle conditioned. Pours a hazy bright golden, nice fluffy white head with sticky lacing. Aromas are very nice. They aren't abrassive and in your face, but they're extremely enjoyable. It had a bit of a west-coast vibe to it. Lots of sticky grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. The flavors drop off a bit, but are still pretty tasty. Caramel malts are there, but seem to take a backseat. There's hints of grass and pine. It has some earthy flavors. Bitter, but not too bitter. This has a nice spicy kick as well. Mouthfeel is very nice. Active carbonation, fluffy and creamy. Crisp and refreshing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Very easy drinking brew. This would be great for outdoors during the warm weather.

This is a really nice pale ale. Southern Tier has a nice beer on their hands with this one.
