Color- medium clear gold. Small to medium thick head.

Aroma- hoppy with a hint of roast in the malt. Very smooth, very balanced IPA.

Taste- Starts with a gentle hoppiness moving to a subtle buttery mid-body and finishing with a clean, balanced hoppiness with a lingering dry aftertaste. The middle reminds us of a lesser Dogfish Head 60 Minute and the finish reminds us of a Stone IPA somewhat. For the high ABV, this is very smooth and will sneak up on you. We compared Torpedo with this, and there's no comparison. Southern Tier makes a quality IPA. Southern Tier's website does not give the IBUs.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass), Tasted in 9/2/2013.

Serving type: bottle

On nitro at District Tap House in DC

The nitro line produced the expect cloud of fine bubbles the settled to a cream head that maintained very good lacing to the end

Taste is mainly piney hops with some citrus, a very good and refreshing balance

The mouthfeel and overall impression is smoother than my previous experience of the same beer

Serving type: nitro-tap
