Purchased this beer based on the Brewer- I've liked just about every Southern Tier beer I have had and this is no exception.

What struck me first about this beer was the nose- wow- so floral and complex- almost juicy. The smell alone made me happy.

The taste did not disappoint. While this is an APA it reminded me more of an IPA. Complex- (there goes that word again) fruity but not sweet, so many flavors going on- Just great.

Right now this is probably one of my favorite beers- it just hits me perfectly.

Poured into a pint glass.

The beer is clear with a light golden color and a thick two finger head. The aroma light with a notes of citrus and piney hops. It has a relatively light malt backbone with a pleasantly assertive hop presence (citrus/piney aroma and flavor with a good level of bitterness). The mouthfeel is good, and compliments the clean piney flavor nicely.

This beer is not the strongest, hoppiest, etc., but it is just a nice solid beer, especially as the weather warms up. Having one of these beers after a nice day outside in the sun can really hit the spot.

BOD 11/31/13. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber cast when decanted. Massive well formed head with superb lacing. Nice nose of citrus against a slightly sweet background. Very light medium body with average carbonation. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit citrus focused bitterness against a biscuit background. A very slight spruce note is also present. The finish is clean with a lingering grapefruit flavored light bitterness. A good session ale.
