4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
