COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the sun hangs high overhead and the stars don’t glimmer until well into the evening, there’s nothing better than grabbing another beer. We specially crafted Farmer’s Tan to be the beer you enjoy on those long summer days. At 4.6% abv, it’s one of our lightest, with a smooth body and easy finish. We carefully limited the ingredients to two types of hops and two types of malts for a perfectly balanced, “sessional” India Pale Ale. We’ve got the beer covered. It’s up to you to keep the sunscreen on.

Lemon, pine, and grapefruit in the aroma. Light, bitter flavor with pine and citrus. This is a great example that a beer doesn’t have to be heavy to have a lot of flavor. Another really good effort from Southern Tier.

Rocky white head over clear rust color with particles. Not unpleasant but it’s all hops.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
This IPA poured a medium amber colour with a big, rocky, bright white head. Minimal lacing. Scents include old books, grass and pot. First swig was very nice and creamy with very good hop malt balance. Grassy hops and a little caramel. Finish is lightly bitter with a nice hop flavour lingering.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 7-26-2014 (Bottle) The appearance is a large fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, very fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, grassy hops, fruity, and bitter. The flavor is moderate bitterness citrus hops, fruity, grassy, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable with a non-offensive bitter aftertaste. This beer is worth trying and it is a beer I would drink again.

This was a decent session IPA. The hops are light but there. The flavor is medium, like an APA. Why not just make this into an APA?

puboflyons (2224) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 3, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Hazy orange to pale yellow character with a full and lasting white head. A decent enough malt and hop sensation on the nose with maybe a touch of apple fruit. Nothing over the top. Light to medium body. A modest malt note up front with a medium to above medium hop bitterness finishing it off.

I wasn't expecting this beer to have that much of a hop kick. This wasn't for me.

Transfer from BA review on 5-5-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a big billowy white foam head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a grapefruit hop smell mixed with other hop aromas of a more herbal and grassy nature. Along with the hop smells are some light cracker aromas as well as a little bit of a tangerine smell. Taste – The taste begins with a very dry bready/biscuit flavor mixed with a moderate amount of a hoppy taste being almost entirely of a grassy nature initially. As the taste advances the grassy fades a bit, but is joined by some other hop flavors of a grapefruit and herbal flavor. All the while a bit of lemon and some light cracker tastes come to the tongue. At the end, the grapefruit hop dominates the weak cracker and other hop flavors, which ends up leaving a somewhat bland grapefruit flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. For the session style the thin body and high carbonation are quite appropriate, but for supporting the hop flavors of the brew, they are a little weak. Overall – Just like most session IPA’s I am a little disappointed. The flavor is too watery and the hops are really not supported, resulting in an unbalanced flavor profile. Just ah…

This beer has a really nice flavor with just a little bitter hops palate. Nice head with medium lacing. Somewhat bready and not too heavy on the C02. Very refreshing and drinkable.

draft, sort of blah IMO. lighter amber pour & medium body. bready, light citrus, caramel maltiness. drinkable but one of my least favorite of the new session IPA surge
