A-Semi clear orange, some carbonation, one finger head, doesn't really seem to last.

S-Has a nice malt presence, then lemon, citrus, wheat and nice deal of hops.

T-Starts with malt then finishes with a good deal of hops. Lemon and citrus notes, mild bitterness and orange.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated and rather crisp.

O-A well made easy drinking APA. Southern Tier made another quality brew.

12 oz. bottle. Pours straw yellow with a pillowy white foam that leaves a sheet of lace down the mug. Perfect clarity.

Aroma of piney hops, very herbal. Resinous, oily hops in the nose.
In the taste, mildly bitter and has some grapefruit or perhaps orange skin pulp flavors. Pale malts giving the necessary sweetness and depth to the beer.

Light bodied, well carbonated feel. Finishes a bit slickly and oily with a small hop bite.

Overall, a very nice pale.

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a nice head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of grapefruit, pine, some tropical fruit and a bit of spice.

T: Taste is a nice blend of grapefruit and pine, with some tropical fruit and a bit of malt. There is a nice bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Moderate body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Well balanced.

O: Very enjoyable beer, way better that I expected. Worth checking out

Pours a brilliant golden with effervescent bubbles and a frothy inch and a half ivory head that lingers.

Pine, resin, dank cannabis, citrus, onion, and mint accompany floral hop notes on a bed of slightly sweet, grainy malt. Complex aroma.

Flavor delivers herbal and floral hop notes, with underpinnings of tangerine and grapefruit pith, along with mango at the start. Resin and bitter hops kick in at the finish. Light grainy malt ties it all together with a touch of breadiness.

Body is a bit watery, with carbonation a touch high, and light hop astringency.

Great hop character. A little weak in body. Could use a touch more malt. Impressive posturing, though a little bitter for my liking.

Poured from bottle into glassare , tan colored brew with 2 finger head with spotty lacing that sticks around through the drink , perfect amount of carbonation rising through the glass

The aroma is a perfect blend of earthy hops and sweet malt , neither one really overpowers the other , just a nice mixture of the two that make your mouth water

The mouth on this beer is a little thin , maybe perfect for the style but I like it to be a little heavier

The taste is just like the aroma , an almost perfect blend of earthy hops and sweet malt , the bitterness comes in through at the end , very tastey

Overall this beer suprised me , I didn't think it would be as good as it is. I really would love to see this made in cans for a nice lake beer , but not sure how the bottle conditioned flavors would lose out during canning
