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.

12oz bottle, thanks to my dad for the 6pk. Golden pour. Smells like resin. Huge hop. Flavor is sweet and sticky, finishes with loads of citrus rind bitterness. Carries some heat.

12oz bottle. Cloudy golden-orange color. Foamy, lacy off-white head. Astringently bitter hop aroma. Earthy hop tones, sort of like an amped up APA, with a very clean mouthfeel. Lemom-lime citrus tones, smooth sweet malt backbone.

A clear yellow beer with a thin white head. Scent is pine, citrus and earth. Sharp hoppy taste of grapefruit and pine...nice bitter finish. Very good.

Bottloe. Low fluffy lasting white head. Clear amber golden body. Apple pear grass hopsw honey aroma. Surprisingly mild fruity hoppy grassy flavor with a low carbonation and a nice long bitter aftertaste.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2010
From bottle. Nice hop citrus nose, with lots of tropical fruit. More pale yellow in color than I would have expected. But the flavor is all there, nice bitter finish. A real offering that competes with other IPAs but seems a bit weak for a IIPA.

12 oz. bottle via trade with hopscotch - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is faint herbal hops. WTF! Flavor is light toasted malt, fruity esters, and faint hops. Finish is smooth and the alcohol is well hidden. Medium body. The question is, "Where’s the hops?" Looks like I got an older bottle or this is an extremely lame 2IPA. Thanks Eric.

Ontbeertaster (2323) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
On tap at the brew pub, I would say this one is a better offering then their IPA, which according to the brewery is their best selling beer. it pour a thick head and a dark shade of brown, nice bitterness

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle:   Bright straw, clear, nearly golden, lively carbonation, large pillowy white head, strong patchy lacing.   Soft sweet hop aroma, minor candied citrus peel.   Semi-sweet orangish hop profile up front, mild bitterness, very soft malt background.   Not as astringent or pithy like as others, but also doesnt feel like an IIPA.   Much more milder than that.   Seems to me more of a straight up west coast IPA.   Needs more of everything, albeit it is fairly well balanced as is.   Not too assertive on the hops, and the malt background isnt very heavy.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Maybe Southern Tier should make a 4xIPA to better represent an Imperial IPA?   Good, but a little light.   Thanks to Goldtwins for sending a few bottles.

Growler from CBX. Pours a clear, light copper with thick white head. Very nice citrusy aroma. A mix of grapefruit and lemon/lime. First sip is very smooth and crisp. Not an over the top, bitter hop heavy IPA. But that is not necassarily a bad thing depending on your mood. Very smooth bitter taste up front and in the middle and get a bit of a bigger pop at the end and in the aftertaste. Definitly some grapefruit coming through, but taste a bit more of the lemon/lime flavor in this. Very drinkable.
