Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle into an ale glass.
Looks: Dark yellow, a bit of copper tinge to it, 1 finger of head which dissipates pretty quickly.
Aroma: Ripe fruit, pine, hops.
Taste: Hops all the way, some malt in the background, some biscuit. Hoppy flavor is straight and narrow, not much complexity here.
Mouthfeel: Hoppy bitterness in the back, not in a bad way.
Overall: A good IPA. Not clear why Southern Tier merged with Victory Brewing. I would've thought that their beers would complement each other, but this one is easily bettered by Victory's Hop Devil.

Have had bottled in the past but latest purchase at local grocery was pint can. Same price as 12 oz bottle so seemed like 4 oz for free!!

Poured hazy light Amber into a pint glass. I smell apricot. Taste is a little bitter and less fruity. I like this double IPA.

I had a bottle that was a month and a half old. Pours a nice amber color with a small head. Not much hops on the nose which is surprising somewhat. Some soap on the nose. Taste is not very bitter and overall balanced.

Poured into a snifter. A crystal-clear golden color with a 2-finger white head. Nice tracks in the glass. Some citrus on the nose, mainly orange and pineapple, but also prominent sweet malt and pine. The taste is big with lots of resin, pine, orange, and a clean aggressive aspirin-like bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied.
