3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - Without having anything too special about it, this beer smells like a typical, quality East-Coast American IPA. Pine, flowers, caramel, and a hint of citrus.
Appearance - The beer pours a clear golden/light copper body, with a frothy white head. The lacing is quite nice, and the head retention is very solid.
Taste - This is a very solid IPA! Starts out with a very impressive hop bite, full of floral and citrus notes. A moderate sweetness follows right after, bringing a pleasant caramel feel to your palate. The finish is slightly bready, bitter, yet sweet. Very proper IPA! After a while you may even taste a hint of vanilla (not sure what causes that, though)!
Palate - Light-to-medium bodied, with a slight syrupness to it.
Overall - This is a solid sessionable IPA. Goes down smoothly, with a good balance between drinkability, bitterness, and flavour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber with a 1/2" head that sticks around, swirls and beads of lace. Taste is full caramel malt that is injected with medium citrus hops midway through the palate The malt shares the finish. A lot of taste, good movement, good balance. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The hops are the star here, only its not overwhelming at all. With a sweet malt aroma, and slightly bitter hop taste, this was a pretty good IPA.

This IPA was very dissapointing. My own home brewed IPA is alot better then this. The southern tier X2 is much better. I won’t have this beer again.

FROM NOTES: August 12, ’12.
From a bottle into a pint glass.
A: Strong grassy, citrus hops with a bit of biscuit aroma mixed in.
A: Pours a cloudy amber to gold with a thick white head that dissipates slowly.
T: Follows the nose, VERY hop forward with a bitterness that lingers long in the finish and a hint of roasty sweetness.
P: Medium to full body with creamy carbonation.
O: Very fruity and excellent IPA. I suggest letting it warm a bit to really open up the flavor.
