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.

Looks good, smells good, tastes good. What more do you want? This is seriously a good IPA. Not terrific, but very good.

Pour bright orange with a one finer off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits, pine, bready malts, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some light herbal hops and just a little booze in the finish. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, long finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA.

Golden color with a moderate, fairly dense, off-white head. Sweet floral and citric hops dominate the nose. Nearly smells acidic with all the hops. I’m trying to find some malt, but am not having much luck. A hopsheads aroma. Some pine comes to the nose as it sets, and perhaps a bit of salty malt. Malt come out more in the flavor. Floral hops and a sweet, salty malt profile. Herbal bitterness in the middle. A touch unclean as dirt and dry grass come to mind in the finish and linger. Seems a bit watery in flavor at times. Perhaps the balance is off, at least for me. 2/10

Ambar clara, pajiza. Excelente espuma, blanca, 2 dedos, muy consistente y duradera. Excelente aroma, pino, cítrica, frutal., floral. Excelente textura, hipercremosa, hipersuave. Excelente sabor, dulce base de caramelo y frutal, muy frutal: pomelo, albaricoque. Excelente final mezclando lo mejor de todo lo anterior con un plus de amargor para no traicionar el estilo. Pero excelente equilibrio y EXCELENTE cerveza. Bravo!!

It pours a cloudy golden color with a white head and lacing. The aroma is strong hops and grapefruit. The taste is hops and bread with some grapefruit and boozy notes. The mouth feel is a nice balance. This is an excellent IPA.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Great xxipa, had bigger but that is not a bad thing. Very pine cone aroma. Orange color light head. Flavor of oily pine hops with some malt sweetness that added not distracted.

Good stuff but was surprised with a name like Southern Tier was southern New York.

Aroma is perfect. Must be the Simcoe hops. Appearance is Golden. Taste is absolutely perfect, dry ipa. Palate is great from start to finish. Heavy on taste, but not on body. Drinks like a dream. Phin really knows how to brew a great double ipa.

Dirty golden brew with decent head. Smells a bit weedy with a herbal thing going for it. Has a dry bitterness that is like a floral hop but with a touch of rag weed in it. Different to say the least but not bad. OK so maybe not my top pick for an IPA but with the price and the kick it is worth going for. Might have to get some of these for later in the summer when the rag weed is going crazy, would be good time to make that comparison again to see if I am spot on.
