3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice amber color with minimal head. Excellent citrusy, floral hop aroma with just a note of brown sugar. Flavor is big lemony, orangy hops up front fading to a sweet malty finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent IPA. Aroma is awesome. The aroma has hops, honey, and a fruity sweetness comprised of orange blossom, raspberry, and a hint of vanilla. The flavor includes some crushed aspirin, vanilla, carmel, and grapefruit with some orange. Not bad but not overly impressive either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavor starts of with the sweet malts but quickly gives way to the citrus and piney hops. Has a decently bitter finish. Just like the other brews I’ve had from Southern Tier, they are quickly becoming one of my favorite brewers. They are very good with making beers with lots of hop and bitter flavor just like I like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Clear amber color with a small, tight head. Slightly sour, somewhat aromatic-hoppy, nutty aroma. Crisp, but pretty harshly hoppy flavor with some alcohol, wheat and toffee. Medium-bodied, slicky and slightly alcoholic palate with pretty low carbonation. A quite light, hoppy, but pretty harsh IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours orange amber. Aroma is very piney with sharp citrus (grapefruit). Just a bit of malt for balance. Better than most, but not the best.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 A little bit too thick and syrupy for me. Not a bad ipa if you like yours a little heavier.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body. The aroma was mild with mild hoppy and caramel notes. The mouth feel was mildly tingly from the hops and the flavor was mild hop and caramel malty.
