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.

Not has hoppy as I was excited for, especially when it says "6 types of hops" It’s okay, nothing that’s going to blow your mind. It’s very malty smelling as soon as you pop the top. There’s a slight fresh hoppy aroma but it’s just dominated by sweet maltiness. Taste is the same. Nothing but malt, hardly any hops. Overall, I’ll pass.

Looking back at my rating for the Gemini recipe pre-2014, I think that version was a tad better. This most certainly isn’t bad, but just not as good. This Gemini pours a light amber color with a bright orange hue. The head is off-white, forms lots of foam and leaves a sticky lace around the inside of the glass. The nose is malty and sweet, with fruity hops and bread notes. The body is very smooth, silky and very drinkable. The hops lend mostly fruity and sweet flavors instead of bitter, tropical and dry. The sweet and bready maltiness is quite present in the flavors as well. I tasted quite a bit of grape of in the finish, with some boozy notes too.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparkling medium orange withe a creamy, sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some light spruce accents, a bit of maple syrup sweetness. Flavor is sweet with some very light citrus, juicy fruit gum, some honeydew melon, a hint of maple syrup and a touch of hard candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is syrupy in a good way. Comparing my notes to the former Gemini, the earlier one was a bit more subtle and sharper.

Slightly hazy, amber color . Nice, white head. Aroma of pine , honey and tropical fruits. Aggressive bitterness from the start, balanced by honey-like sweetness. Bitterness in aftertaste is less intense . Decent DIPA.

Bottle from my brother. Nice hop aroma leads into much deeper, robust taste. Fruity, slick, nice slippery body. Very smooth for a DIPA.

Bottle. Clear light rust orange. Citrus, grapefruit rind and juicy old school hops with down malt sweetness in the aroma. Pine and grapefruit rind with some malty sweetness that’s not overly so. Medium body. Maybe I’m being nostalgic but this is very good. Better than the old version and certainly not new school but made really well. Fun.

I really really really like this one. It has a light sweet, creamy caramel for just a couple of moments and then the hops punch your tongue in it's face. It builds along with the bitterness, fighting to keep the alcohol burn under control. The palate holds the hops, and, if there's any complaint, it's that the bitterness stalls on the palate at point where it's almost a bad taste....not quite, but very close. I still really like this one. If not for that, I'd have this at a 4.2/4.3 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
