3.4/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into tulip shaped glass

Appearance: Dark, golden hazy amber with a thick off-white head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Smell: smells pretty balanced between the hops and the malt. It's fairly sweet. citrus grapefruit and sweetness.

Taste: earthy hopness dominates with a hint of the citrusy hops and the piney hops. The sweet malty flavors are pretty dominating on this one. It's hoppy in the forefront and sweet and malty in the middle and a satisfying hoppy ending.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a hoppy bitter finish.

Overall: This is a fairly balanced beer, perfect for those who don't like a hop explosion. It's a little malty for my preference. I'm not really getting the piney citrusy hopness. I get more of the malty flavors. It's pretty easy drinking and it goes down fairly smooth. Overall it's not too hoppy. I was expecting a little more hops since Souther Tier states that they use 4 different types of hops, but it's a very refreshing IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with white head with good retention and beautiful lacing properties. Aromas are wonderfully floral, tropical fruit stand-like, with a nice caramel underbelly. Tastes amazing. Starts out sweet and caramely, before piney and orange zesty hop notes dominate the mid-palate, and candied orange peel comes through on the finish. I like this a lot. What an excellent IPA.
