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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Poured from 12oz bottle : Once again a solid offering from S.T. Aroma is off the charts as always with their IPAs. More citrus than pine comes through. Not overly bitter and quite drinkable. Recently tried their "regular" IPA and it is basically a comparable product.**Re-ratings**Since 10.2010, I have enjoyed the 2x many o’ times. It has become one of my favorite "to-go-to" beers in Southern’s lineup. Even better than I remember. Just on the sweet side, as I like all my ipa’s.

12oz bottled August 30, 2010. Pours hazy gold with a pillowy white head that leaves some nice lacing and holds a light foamy cap and ring. Citrus and floral aroma, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, melon, a bit of bag-o-weed, a touch of sweet malt. Good strength. Flavor features more citrus hops, mostly oranges/tangerine, some grapefruit rind, somewhat resinous, a bit of pine and grass, mild malt sweetness in the middle and finishes with good, but not overpowering bitterness. Quite smooth. Dry finish. Mouthfeel is oily and slick, medium bodied, medium carbonation. This perfectly fits my preference for a DIPA....lower malt, lower ABV, let the hops shine. Good stuff! Would love to try a less than a month old sample someday.

Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 21, 2010
from erzbierschof.ch - slightly hazy golden-bronze colour with a little white foam left; a fresh flowery hoppy aroma with notes of caramel and quince; gently oily, full-bodied and with a moderate and subtle carbonation; a fair bitterness lasting long in a hoppy fruity and caramelish aftertaste

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2010
330ml bottle from a private order. Dark amber with a pillowy white head. Lots of hops and sweetness in the aroma. Flavour is quite sweet, a lot of malt in here.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle shared by Shane. Pours a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice citrus hop note with some pine and dank backing with a slight grass backing. Flavor starts dank with growing citrus and pine and a bit of a sweet grain backing. Good but nothing special.

rollingwood (86) - Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Lovely. This is another IPA success for Southern Tier. The the gold pour is topped by a white head that quickly falls to lace. Grapefruit and a general citrus nose dominate the aroma and allude to an intense hop presence. That hop presence and the sweet malt balance ST brings to the beer is part of what defines this beer. But here we have the insistance of a West Coast IPA without the sometimes abrasive intensity of the hop profile in some West Coast and Colorado brews. Here, like with Dogfish Head 90 minute and Great Divide Herculese, the hop intensity is mitigated by the malt spine, but the hops--and the careful blending of hops here in particular--is obviously a mark of their craft.

bierkoning (10157) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle. Pale golden color. Firm oily hopbitter aroma with grapefruit and pineapple. Firm oily hopbitter flavor, citric with hints of melon. Long aftertaste with some soap. Well made but a bit boring.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Clear light amber color with an egg shell head that left a nice lace on the glass. Carbonation appeared when agitated. A candy hop with a touch of flower arose from the glass.

jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a nice sustained white head that leaves nice lacing... crisp citrusy aroma, faint pale malts... Good flavor, nice citrus hops with a touch of pine, very dry finish, not overly complex, very clean, not muddled at all... medium full bodied, not over the top mouthfeel... good....

Big tropical hops aroma. Hopslam-ish. Nice. Nothing to hate about the appearance. Juicy hop flavor, grapefruit and such. Dry bitter finish. Solid as all get out.
