It poured a deep cloudy orange and gave the same color body. A beautiful half inch white head forms and lasts for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. Nice ringy foamy spider web lacing speckles the sides and clings to the pint glass. The smell has strong tones of pine, citrus and hops. There are some slight malts coming out as the beer warms. The taste takes the previously mentioned smells and gives more of a earthiness to it. I like it. The palate is about a medium and feels great on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent choice of an American IPA. I didn’t think I would like this one as much, but this is solid for me and its style.
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2017 Pretty good IPA. Comparable to Goose. westknife (108) - New York City, New York, USA - APR 23, 2017

Bottle obtained in variety 12-case of IPAs on road trip through NY. Great tasting IPA. Balanced taste of malt sweetness and hoppiness. Worthy of a second glass or more rustbucket0873 (460) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2017
pours golden amber with white fluffy head that last. the aroma is resin, grapefruit, pine, and earthy, with some citrus. the flavor is citrus with small amount of grapefruit, and alot of resin and pine. Some lighter caramel through. the palate leaves bitterness at the end and some lingering flavors. overall well balanced and quite refreshing at 7.3% hidden well. tezarak (121) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Too sweet and not hoppy or bitter enough...hard to reach minimum character length with beers you don’t like...

I’ve had the southern tier 2xipa’s and thought they were great tasting....
Gotta watch because they will sneak up on you.
The regular southern tier is a little less hoppy but very tasty....loved it! commonmac (1245) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle from MGM (sorry, small business owners). Consumed in a beautiful Bent Paddle glass. Attractive golden orange hue. Nice white attractive head. Nose is a blend of pine and citrus rind. Definitely makes you excited for a high quality IPA. Taste is a well balanced with a stronger malt presence than others in the style. Pleasant hop overtone without bringing much bitterness to the table. Resiny mouthfeel. Very drinkable with a little alcohol presence that hits home towards the end. Great brewery.

Pours an amber from a bottle. Aroma is of vomit and tropical fruit. Thankfully, only the fruit and a big bitterness is conveyed in the mouth. Good beer. HiFives (10) - Brush Prairie, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2016

Draft at Buffalo Marriott. Very little aroma. Amber color with white head that lingers nicely, good lacing. Nice malt balance, smooth hoppiness, a little citrus flavor. Not a hop bomb. Med to full mouthfeel, smooth. Overall, a very drinkable IPA, more in the style of a British IPA. I like it!
