3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grapefruit with notes of pine and malt comprise the aroma. A clear amber pour with a quickly disappearing white head and clingy lacing. The taste is hop froward but nicely balanced by a malty bread-like flavor. Grapefruit, pine, bread, grain. As expected, a nice bitter finish completes the impression. Medium body with crisp carbonatin. Overall, a refreshing and balanced IPA that is easily drinkable - sadly I only have one.

On cask. Light, mildly hoppy aroma, fresh. Amber pour. Very smooth, but not as hoppy as I prefer

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355mL bottle. Pours deep golden with an almost non existent aroma (slight skunk). Has a nice confronting bitterness although its backed by a lack of flavour and complexity. DOB on the bottle is 3.1.13 so surely the hop flavours and aroma wouldn’t be zero.

Bottle at home 16th May 2013. Nice American style IPA, sweetish, like it more bitter. Lovely drink though

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good American IPA that is more restrained on the hop side of the hop-malt balance. While I personally prefer the hoppier West Coast variety this East Coast example of the breed would appeal to many others and would not see me turning one down.

Pours dark gold in the glass. Citrusy malt aroma. Herbal bitter soapy flavor. The soapy bitter taste lasts. Overall, i might have to rerate. Maybe i got a bad beer or there was some residual soap in my glass. Not sure...

Bottle. Glad ST has made it down to Texas, now send down some damn choklat, mokah and java, dammit! Clear copper pour with a small head. Aroma is pine, cereal, grain. Flavor is pine, faint citrus and soap. Not super floral. Mid dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another great American IPA. It is well hopped and 7.3% alc. The picture of Southern Tier label does not look like that anymore, could do with an update.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Between fragrance, mouthfeel, taste and yummy lingering aftertaste, this is a solid and balanced ipa and at 7.3 it packs enough weight to lighten your mood if the edge needs to be taken off.
