Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a medium white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is nice, citrus, sweet caramel and a mild pine. Wonderful flavor, well balanced caramel sweetness, some mild toasted notes and a piney citrus finish. Chewy in the mouth, very good example of an IPA.

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... LagerSensei11 (1) - - DEC 30, 2016 does not count
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!

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! retinadoc (236) - - SEP 27, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Bottle. Full hoppy aroma and flavors. Very smooth, unlike many of the current IPAs, which are too punchy, too bitter, or too citrusy. Hits all the right notes. About as good as it gets for an IPA out of a bottle.
