This beer pours a beautiful amber and leaves a 3/4" white head.
Aroma is very nice being marvelously "hoppy".
This is very close to a PERFECT summer beer to me.
Has GREAT taste, wonderful mouthfeel and a mild alcohol content that will allow the drinker to have enough to get refreshed without hindering further work or interaction.
Southern Tier definitely hit a home run with this wonderful brew.
If you like the taste of an IPA with the drinkability of a saison this is the beer for you!!!

Appearance - Golden yellow with a nice white head and lacing. It could be a bit darker.
Smell - Good fruit and citrus aroma, not very strong but still there. I wish it was a little stronger.
Taste - Too light in body and I feel like there isn't enough malt, weak tasting. However nice fruity citrus flavor, very good not overpowering, just enough. Not much malt to speak of, very hop dominated which is sort of okay!

From 07/08/13 notes. Had this on tap at Ginger Man in NYC. 16 oz pour in a tulip.

a - Pours a hazy, burnt orange-golden color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of tropical fruits, fruity malts, mango, pineapple, citrus, lemon-lime, wheat, and bready malts. Awesome nose, tons of tropical fruits to it and some light citrus. Really liking the nose.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, light tropical fruits, citrus hops, grapefruit, wheat, grains, and lemon zest. Nice, but seems a bit watered down compared to the great nose. More citrus and grapefruit than the nose, but less mango and tropical fruits.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is very smooth and easy to drink. Great mouthfeel.

o - Overall I liked this one quite a bit. i thought the nose was awesome with tons of tropical fruits, and the mouthfeel was great; smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. Taste was not as strong, though it is good, with less tropical fruits. Worth checking out and something I'd definitely have again.
