Second time around for this one. I liked it better this time! It's good shit man!

Orange-tan and slightly hazy. One finger head which didn't last too long and ok lacing.

Smells like a malty IPA. Malts, pine cones, grapefruit, hops.

Hops front the taste, with a really nice hops flavor, just a touch oily, light fruits, some citrus, and some pine with a nice malt background.

Feel is medium and smooth, with easy but ample bitterness and a slightly oily hops aftertaste.

Drinks pretty well. A nice staple IPA.

Thanks to my buddy living in NY for bringing this one for me to try.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear amber/copper color It has a huge, billowy, white head with great retention. There are some light bubbles rising to the top, but it seems kind of still.

S: Very nice hop profile. There is some sweet citrus and some herbal perfume-like aromas. I also sense a touch of sweet caramel.

T: Piney and floral hops are the backbone of the taste. The sweetness of caramel comes through again. A very minimal bitter bite finishes it off.

M: This is very, very smooth. Almost velvety. It has a medium body with minimal carbonation. A slight crisp finish cleanses the palate.

O: I'm glad I was able to try this (my first Southern Tier). It was just a slightly above average IPA for me though. I look forward to trying more from ST. Not a bad offering.
