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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent bright orange brass color with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of pine and salty wet grass with some herbal notes and sweet pale maltiness. Starts with a fairly full, almost syrupy sweetness with some herbal grassy piny bittering hops and orange citrus flavor with a touch of black peppery toward the bittersweet finish. A decent IIPA, but I’d prefer a less earthy/grassy hop profile and something a little more crisp and grapefruity.

patrickfannon (1236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle 12 oz. Split with James and Tony. Pours a clear orange with a moderate, soft, white head. Aroma of pine, hops, soap, and traces of vanilla, oak, and malts. Fuller bodied with a tangy, somewhate bitter palate. Decent Imerial IPA, but I expected more from Southern Tier.

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Nice fresh tropical hopped(mangos,cat pee,citrus) with that sweet malt edge but all very reserved in the aroma, and in the taste as well. Like a "light imperial". Nice session strong ale. Nice price @ 9.99 for a 6 pack purchased @ Constant Friendship liqours in Abingdon,MD(best prices in Harford county) A good summer IPA with and ethanolic boost.

TonyDiUlio (643) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 Had with James and pat. Pours lacking. Clear orange. Little to no head. Aroma is so sweet and hoppy. Flavor is smooth hops and mango. Not a bad brew at all.

JaBier (4842) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle sample at the new beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/29/10. Clear gold pour with a thin white head. Nose is very crisp and pretty much all hops with spicy, catty and citrusy notes. Flavor is crisp citrus with a bit of malt before a bitter grassy hop finish.

Six pack in Philly. Literally blew my mind when the owner pulled this out of the fridge. Tastes like a dogfish 60 and 90 combined.. Awesome.

barak316 (107) - Elyria, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Dark golden hue with a thick creamy head. Smell was a faint hoppy presence. Definately not a strong double IPA taste. The taste of hops was lacking. However this a very drinkable beer, even sessionable. Kind of tastes more like a Pale Ale.

chaz01 (190) - Miamisburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2010
A couple of sample pours at a local beer tasting event. Light golden color, thin head leaves some lacing. Lots of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom or the glass. Some citrus & grapefruit aromas, but also kind of musky odor that I didn’t find pleasant. Grapefruit along with grass and hay notes, some malt sweetness to balance the hops. Medium bodied, well carbonated. Grassy hoppy finish lingers in your mouth for a long time. Citrus and grapefruit flavors that I normally expect in a big IPA were mellowed out somewhat providing a somewhat unique hop profile. Still overall an enjoyable beer -- would pair nicely with a chicken or seafood entree.

Bottle picked up at SL.Thanks to matt for the heads up on a new brew. Poured aggresive into a snifter. Light orange in color, good pillowing head. Nice aroma of some super piney notes. Smooth taste. Nice and piney with some citrus notes. Fruity. Nicely balanced though. Just a bitter bruiser brew. Hop heads delight. Tad on the sweeter side but still good. Light creamy texture. Great brew.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2010
Thin white head thats short lived, a bit of miniscule lacing left behind. Pale gold in color, almost budesque. Mild nose of pine, citrus a little catty, grassy with a hint of bubblegum. Body is med/light with a good carbonation, lightly resiny, oily. Flowery, perfumey hop flavors all around. Maybe a hint of caramel and pale malts, lightly sweet. Touch grainy, bready. Dry finish. Nice bite. Guessin the abv around 7% ?? Bottle procured @statelineliquors.
