COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
According to Greek mythology, the twins Castor and Pollux are said to have been hatched from one egg. What a crazy story! We’re more apt to believe in alien intervention and UFOs. You have, something a little less far fetched. At Southern Tier Brewing Company, heavily hopped beer have been out calling card since Unearthly made its debut in 2006. Gemini is a super hopped ale with six varieties of hops blasting flavor and zapping bitterness in every direction.

Aroma is dank hops, citrus/fruit and very slightly musty. The flavor is hops, fruit, light grapefruit, malts and a long and bitter/mildly tart finish.

mcberko (9633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, some caramel and bready notes – not overly cohesive, but pleasant. Flavour is quite chewy, with resinous and spicy hops, and bready malt to back. Well-balanced and cohesive. Nothing mind-blowing, but it’s well-integrated. Very good.

Bulk_Carrier (2781) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - AUG 15, 2015
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-hazy bronzed color with a light transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. A one finger white foamy head started and dissipated leaving messy lacing running all over the place. The smell starts off with a sticky resinous sharp sprucy/piney-ness that lingers over some light caramel malts. The taste balances nicely between the caramel malts and the bitter sprucy/piney-ness. It leaves a nice dry sprucy/caramel aftertaste leading into a light dry piney finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs nicely to allow a nice bitterness to invade and become what its supposed to be for this beer and style. Overall, this was a well worthy DIPA I’d have again.
