Bottle from Half Time. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Genuine cat pee aroma. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is roast caramel quite dominated by citrusy hop. It is more hoppy than most pales, because the caramel is not so harshly roasted as is the case with most pales. Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2010
On tap at the southern tier event with Cara. Pour is light yellow/amber with tons of white lacing. Awesome full flavored pale with astrigent hops, grapefruit. One of my flavor pales ever. A great, strong session ale. ALCOHOLNIZM (165) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - JUL 17, 2010
WHEN IM RATING A BEER I USAULLY BY A SIX PACK AND SIT AT THE COMPUTER WITH MY LAST ONE TO GET A REAL RATING, SO WITH THIS BREW I HAD THE SAME INTENTIONS, ONLY IT WAS SO GOOD I DRANK THE WHOLE SIX PACK AND NEVER GOT TO THE RATING. SO OFF TO THE STORE AND ONTO MY SECOND SIX PACK NOW DOWN TO MY LAST BEER AND IM READY TO RATE IT. FOR STARTERS WHAT A WONDERFULL PINEY CITRUS AROMA COMES OUT OF THIS GOLDEN SLIGHTLY CLOUDY BEER. WITH A NICE LIGHT CARAMEL NUTTY CITRUS HOPS THIS IS THE PERFECT HOT SUMMER BEER FOR THE IPA LOVERS, NOT HEAVY AND EASLY DRINKABLE AND NO AFTER TASTE YET STILL ENOUGH FLAVOR TO PLEASE ANY BEER HEADS PALATE . SOUTHERN TIER HAS YET TO FAIL ME. robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2010

Tasted from 12oz bottle. Pours pale golden with a very thin white head. Nose of hops, pale malt, and light yeast. Flavor is maltier than expected with bitter hops and yeast on the back. There are also dusty and acidic qualities. Body is light with heavy carbonation and a medium-length bitter finish. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Pungent aroma of hops, grass, resin, pine, and slight grapefruit.
Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, grass, pine, slight malt, light resin, and hints of citrus and tangerine. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, grass, pine, and resin finish is dry. Better than I had expected. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2010
12oz bottle. Batch 212. Clear applejuice pour with almost no clear head. Nose is sweet apples. Flavor is spicy hop bitterness, and some citrusy, small woodsy notes. Nice refreshing and fairly crisp on the palate with a medium chewy body. Long lasting drying hop finish. Not bad at all, but it definitely tastes better than it smells. williamstome (1868) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 30, 2010
This beer pours goldish orange and has a grassy aroma with some grapefruit. The flavor is grasy as well with a bit of hops and some estery notes. The beer is crisp yet smooth, with a bitter finish. Drake (13662) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville, VA. The commercial description says this is only available in a mixed pack so I guess I’m lucky to find it singled out. Pours a pale clear yellow color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of resiny hops with a good bit of toasty toffeeish malts. The taste is earthy and slightly citrus hops with caramel malts. Medium bodied. Decent beer. 5/16/10.
