COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale. Our double IPA is a hop lovers dream. Citrusy and clean with an incredible finish.

I thought the nose on this was big time grapefruit, in fact rather like grapefruit juice. Color was standard gold with a nice lacing pattern. Hops are present in the palate but toned down and softened by a nice maltiness. There is also a citrus presence in the palate. This is nice but not that complex, not one of the big bomb ingredient laden IIPA’s I’ve come to love.

Aroma:The malt aroma of this beer is very strong, with the hops taking second place. The hops smell mildly of citrus. Appearance:Pale golden color, with great head retention and good lacing. Taste:On the foretaste, there are hops, and a good amount, but not quite as much as I expect in a DIPA. They all do taste good though, and as foretaste gives way to the midtaste, the hop complexity makes itself known more, peaking in the midtaste. The aftertaste is just a ramping down of the same, but it lingers pleasantly on the tongue. The malt flavors are rather subtle through the whole experience. Palate:Very smooth body, easy to drink. Nicely carbonated. Overall:I was expecting the hops to be more in your face, as many American brewers are doing these days, but instead, southern tier went in for a deeply complex, thoughtful brew. It’s one of the more sessionable DIPAs out there, as much as any DIPA can be sessionable.

A very solid DIPA from Southern Tier. Surprisingly west coast flavor from an east coast brewery.

Southern Tier 2XIPA is a dense, crystal clear golden ale with a dense and frothy yellowish white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a sweet, floral aroma with notes of hay and oranges. It smells great. It’s pretty full bodied; smooth and foamy in the mouth. The finish is quite clean and dry. It has a nice, bold bitterness of pine resin and juniper. A peppery rumble follows. The aftertaste is long and bitter and gets a little soapy. There’s nothing incredibly stand-out here, but it’s a big, bold beer with no apparent faults.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours brite gold with a foamy 5 finger off-white head. Aroma of lots of floral and citrus hops. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is very floral. A little caramel. Finish is very florally bitter. Citrus in the finish, but not too much. Extremely pleasing.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Draft at Blind Pig Brewery. Pours golden amber with a white head. Floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and slightly dry on the palate. Very pale malt backbone, with a sharp spicy and citrus rind bitterness. Dry and hoppy finish, with just a hint of medicinal notes. A bit overattenuated for my tastes, but decent.
