Southern Tier puts out an awesome IPA. Aroma is bursting with hops and the taste that follows isn't far behind with excellent hop malt balance. Way to go Southern Tier you made my day.

L: Clear copper, with some rising bubbles; a thin, creamy, eggshell white head, that leaves decent lacing.

S: Lots of red and yellow grapefruit, pine needles, and some caramel.

T: Very heavy malt presence. Lots of caramel and toasted biscuit. There's a bit of juicy red grapefruit flesh, grapefruit peel with oils and bitterness, then a bit of fennel and almost black pepper-like spice near the finish, and then it ends with sticky, sappy pine resin. Lingers forever of sticky pine and caramel malt sweetness.

F: Medium-bodied, feels full in the mouth, nice carbonation. A bit too sappy and sweet, though.

O: A typical West Coast style IPA. It's not bad for what it is.
