OK, I love when brewers do this. It’s the same reason I love single malt scotch. Let’s find out want things taste like at the very foundation. The malt was perfect for this ABV. Sturdier than a straight Pilsen malt. It did not need any specialty malts to stand up to the hops. The hops were also interesting. They might have been unsuitable for a less substantial IPA. But with this sturdy malt and the higher ABV, the hops worked well. The brighter side of the hops is fine. The citrus and mild pine are perfect. The other element of these hops is what make this beer interesting. Tropical fruit aroma and earthy taste. Not exactly what we associate with an IPA. But apart from the style definition, the beer works. I really enjoyed the idea behind this beer and the instantiation (to borrow a software term.) Nice work, Southern Tier.

Pours a golden color with a large off white head. Notes of fruity / citrusy hops, with a decent carmel backbone, and and long peppry finish. Nice.

Golden apple juice color. Good carbonation. Long lasting lace. There isn’t a ton of aroma, very mild and subtle. Some flowery, pollen hops. Flavor is utterly bitter: flowery hops, heavy grapefruit. Earthy malts, but the bitter hop is simply brutal (a compliment). Slushy, thick feel. While it’s not a hop bomb, there is nearly no malt balance. Would pair well as a black n tan with a malt bomb.

trapped (1301) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 11, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Hazy bright orange with medium sized creamy off-white head, faint citrus aroma, low carbnation, well balanced slightly hoppy malt taste, medium finish with little bitter aftertaste. Deceptively easy to drink, very good brew!

June 4, 2015 - on tap at Gerst Haus. Clear golden pour with head and lacing. Nice balance of malt and hops with touch of spice in aroma and taste.

I’m assuming this is the original 2014 version and not the new one. 12oz bottle: orange pour, white head. aroma of pine, citrus, malt. tastes are grapefruit, orange peel, herbal, light spice, floral, biscuit.

puboflyons (2479) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 13, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Mildly cloudy golden pour under a large white head that fades. Aroma of toast, citrus, and the tropics. Clean though. Medium to better than medium body. The taste brings out a breadiness, a little citrus, thyme, pepper, and a bitter sweet character. Lingering. Pretty darn decent.

Emeister84 (1534) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Aromas of pine, grass, and orange pith. Slightly hazy orange with a fairly lasting white head. Very dry, very bitter, very aromatic, definitely fills the sinus cavity. Medium bodied.

Probably a bad bottle, bought chilled at a quality grocer today and opened cold. A disappointing effort from a favorite brewer, whose Double IPA I like a lot. Almost no aroma - indiscernible hops, cloudy and unfiltered in appearance with relatively light head. Some citrus in the taste but a flat mouthfeel and sour notes in the aftertaste.

One hit of superior pale and one hit of equinox. a light gold evervescent pour, get a bit of the lemondrop hop variety on display with Stone, peppery, very light citrus and pine. nice dry mouthfeel, can not detect the abv, hard to find a better hot weather dipa this needs a separate entry,
