Pours a medium copper/amber with a smallish dense white head. Aroma is very subdued for a DIPA, medium sweet with hay and citrusy. Flavor really has a nice balance of light caramel malt and citrusy hops. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Another great hop centric beer from Southern Tier.

draft into a tulip @ Capones.
Poured a golden amber with a one-finger white head which settle to a coating but staying around until I finished this. Lacing was lighter but present throughout as well. Nose was piney hops and citrus. Tasting revealed a well-balanced IPA - citrus (grapefruit, mango) predominated at the start, some sweetness of the malt in the middle, returning to citrus and a touch of dryness in the finish. This was not overly cloying nor sticky. Mouthfeel was light to medium but with healthy carbonation. At a little over 8%, I could do a few of these with no problem this summer.

20010-06-18. Crisp orange body with a modest off white head. 3+ Richly hoppy aroma, citrus, resiny green notes. 8+ Flavour is pleasantly bitter throughout, modest citrus, light resin and alcohol. Muddled citrus lingers. Little or no hint of the alcohol content. Smooth average to medium bodied palate. This benefited from catching me at the right time I suspect, but I really enjoyed this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with almost no head. Very thin layer of white at the top. Mild nose with some nice spicy and flowery hops as well as some very light hints of grapefruit and orange zest. Citrus tastes are very prevalent at the start and move to a lightly sweet and almost astringent alcohol taste. The hops come through more at the finish with a light citrusy hint. Surprisingly clean finish with a lightly hoppy aftertaste. Not sure what the flavor in the middle was, but it was slightly off-putting to me.
