12 oz brown bottle with Southern Tier style green label. Poured into a standard 12 oz beer mug.
A - Light copper color with some bright golden Hues. Crystal clear clarity. And i mean 100% spotless clarity. off white head that appeared to be a thin fluffy head that possessed a little bit of stick.
S - American fresh hop aroma. Cedar, pine, and hints of citrus in the aroma. Pretty resinous character.
T - Toasty bread flavor with a sweet blast of honey. A real semi toasted malt. Followed by a hop profile of Pine and lemon. Flavor has some resin to it with a toasted grain like malt backdrop. Hop bitterness is fairly bold.
M - pretty easy going ipa given the hop character it has. I found it enjoyable and down right easy to drink. Its not overly thick, but does a nice job of somewhat coating the palate. One of the most sessionable ipa's I've ever had.
O - a good ipa and flagship brew from Southern Tier. It has some class to it for sure. This ipa could benefit from a bit harsher malt character for sure. More malt would create a better balance of the hops, but hey this is a beer any hop head would appreciate. Southern Tier is a great brewery and this American ipa is very good all around. Not a whole lot of craziness to it. Just a blue collar, handcrafted ipa any geek would enjoy.
