ellolovey (469) - Georgia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bomber. Pours a thick hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, and caramel and toffee malts. Smells amazingly sweet and citrusy all at the same time. Nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops. Pine and citrus hit the palate first followed by caramel and toffee malts with a bit of earthiness in the finish. Bittersweet finish. Southern Tier has yet to let me down! This is a great way to finish a long work day.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy and earthy. Taste is slightly bitter, with a hint of sweetness at the end. An odd but interesting beer...

Westmeister (1828) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2013
Draft. Pours a slightly hazy orange with chunky head. Aroma is sweet maltiness as one would expect from a ST IPA, with citrus and some peach. Taste is alost equal amounts of sweet caramel malt and orange, peach. In the end the sweetness overpowers the hop bite. Ok.

BoringBard (139) - NORWAY - APR 3, 2013
Pours a transparent dark golden liquid with tiny snowwhite head. Smell wonderfull of sweet bit vert bitter hops. Taste of sweet caramell, then turns bitter and finishes with a little spice. Viscous mouthfeel. A very good ale!

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 3, 2013
Pours a deep golden liquid with a small somewhat disappointing offwhite head. Sweet and hoppy aroma of caramelmalts, peaches, pine and some yeast. Rich mouthfeel. Starts off with a sweet taste of bread, caramel and peaches. Switches and finishes with a more hoppy taste of pine and citrus. Superb.
