3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is brilliant right out of the neck, dazzling orange peel, dank wood and woodsy pine, light floral character, tons of juicy citrus, grapefruit even leaning tropical, mango, pineapple, lychee, some caramel. Lightly hazy but bright yellow, soapy white head. Taste is bone-dry and stripping, light bitterness with a thin malt body that manages to hint at bread by the end. The aromatics are just killer, but there’s no base to support them; would like more bitterness, more caramel or even some crystal (a first!). If they’re going away from tradition, then the yeast has to do more than it’s doing here. Killer hop profile, though!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a foamy, beige head. There is a decent amount of citrus and hops in the aroma. This is perhaps a little more watery than I was expecting but it still delivers a great pale ale flavor. Drinks very smoothing making it a great summer beer that doesn’t taste like water. Finishes a little sweet and malty, pretty unique stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into glass. Hazy orange Amber pour with a foamy white head that retains well. Smells like lemon, hops, some sweet citrus. Taste is hoppy and citrusy. Lemon, malty finish. Medium smooth carbonation. Medium length semi bitter finish.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice lemon hop sharp smell. Cloudy yellah. Taste is rather astringent. Good sizzle saves this stuff. From a bottle. Some fruit in there as the session continues. Ends with a crackle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a darker golden cloudy pour with lots of floaties and a minimal head. Smell and taste is bright citrus, a little tropical. Very warm weather friendly, extremely sessionable for a hoppy brew. Just one of the better pale ales I have ever had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a goblet. Pours nice clean gold with a slight white head and loose lacing. Mild fruity, juicy aroma with a light yeastiness. Taste is juice, bread, light grass, tropical fruits. Crisp and easy drinking, but not overly complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz. Pours light golden with a sticky white head. Wam bam in the face with hops! Huge dank pine, citrus rind, and some caramel come to mind. The flavor is so damn blanced and smooth. Pine, grapefruit, and some floral notes throughout. Just another winner from ST.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong citrus flavor and aroma. Biscuity malt with a crisp finish. Some yeasty undertones which is easy to pick up from lighter bottle conditioned beers. The yeasty tang in this style is hard to get used to, but it’s a solid beer nonetheless.

This is my favorite Southern Tier. Very hoppy for a pale ale and I dig it. Very smooth and good
