Thanks to maniac for this one! Due to my amazing lack of math abilities, this ended up being my 1600th, without me even realizing it at the time. The conclusion of our tasting, so not a bad way to wrap things up at all. Medium to light orange, OK head. Aroma is a shock of pine with some caramel backing it up. Flavor matches, just a boatload of pine, a hint of anise on the finish. Caramel keeps things gummy and makes the pine seem almost resinous. Excellent brew, worthy, although accidental, to be a milestone beer.

flavor does not quite live up to the aroma at first, sweetness comes out upon warming and turns into a big rich sweet hoppy imperial IPA with a nice sweetened grapefruit character, goes really well with pepper crusted grilled steak

Clear amber appearance with a small beige head and good lacing. Citrus/floral hop aroma. Piney, moderately spiced taste, with grapefruit and other citrus flavors playing a dominant role. Mild, low-keyed maltiness. Bitter, full bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Long lasting finish with a pronounced alcohol burn in the aftertaste.

The aroma is hops, slight pine and lemon/lime smell. The head is small, off white and creamy. It is mostly diminishing, the color is orangish copper and is a little hazy. The initial flavor is bitter, hitting the back of the tongue, the duration is average. The body is light to medium, the texture creamy and carbonation soft.

22oz Bomber Recieved in trade via AdamB84. Thanks Adam. Southern Tiers Unearthly pours a glowing polished copper that is absolutely crystal clear. Streams of carbonation bubbles rise slowly to the two finger dense off-white eggshell head. Leaves sticky drink lines after each swig. Really good looking brew. Big caramel malt backbone keeps Unearthly somewhat balanced but the hops still manage to grab the spotlight. Thereís layers of hoppiness. A solid dose of pine needles kick things off followed by sweetened grapefruit and even a hint of pineapple. From what I remember the only other beer I can remember having any pineapple aroma is Brian Boru. Very welcomed sugary sweetness to the aroma. Thereís not much I can say about the flavor that hasnít already been said about the aroma. Every flavor melds together flawlessly. Smooth with a tremendous malt-to-hop balance letting the hops show through just a little more. Excellent! Medium bodied with a heavenly lush, velvety mouthfeel. Just enough carbonation to ease this beer along. Gives a nice hop wash making the tongue slightly numb. Very nicely done. For such a huge beer the drinkability is unbelievable. No trace of alcohol besides the warm cheeks. I could definately see me getting in trouble if this was sold locally. My first offering and no matter wht I have to do wont be my last from Southern Tier. This is an incredibly tasty well balanced IIPA. I need to find somewhere to deliver a case of this to me. This beer is simply not of this Earth. 8/25/07

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2007 Firey blonde color with a thin, light khaki skin. Nose is powerfully fruity to start with an orange and apricot burst. Seemingly fresh with an evergreen tint. Caramel and scotch barrel spark softly underneath. Huge, malty, viscous flavor. Alcohol fills every crack between layers of rum cookies, wet oak and grapefruit, pear skins, and flowers, searing an undeniably jagged medicinal edge into the body. A bit of graham cracker crust. Finishes hot with a dry pulse of burnt leather. Thick but somewhat loose in the mouth, with that affliction of imprecision thatís more or less common. This is mostly because itís too hot. A soothing creamy sensation eases in at the end to temper that a bit. Kind of an amiable beast. Predictable. Thanks Jason!

Deep Orangy colour with orangy head. Aroma is strong with warm hop florals and malt. Flavour is just as good as the aroma. Strong hop flavour with sweet malt oiliness coating my mouth. Light alcoholic hints. Strong bitter aftertaste. Should of bought more of this one.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2007
Orange-amber in colour, lingering light brown/beige coloured head, great lacing. The aroma is very rich, insane amount of hops, some alcohol, caramel malts, cookies, oranges. The flavour turns quite sweet, chewy, very hoppy, the alcohol makes to attempt to hide, lots of citrus, some pine, caramel. Hot mouthfeel, medium/large body, high carbonation. Finishes with a long and large alcohol warmth, very hoppy. This is a bit unbalanced from all of the alcohol, tone that down a bit and you would have a nice IPA.

650ml bottle from the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York for $6.49
Purchased on June 30, 2006 opened on April 6, 2007.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Bomber courtesy of Secret Santa. Aroma was sweet citrus varity. Red body but held to light an orange color. Good off white head. Flavor wasnít dry like some imp of this syle can be. A juciy thicker body texture of sweet citrus with the dry bitterness in the background. Refeshing brew and smooth on the palate with minimal dryness.

Citrus, floral, lavender hops with thick underlying toasty malt sweetness and peachy fruits in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a low off white head that recedes to a thin but lasting partial cover with some sudsy lacing. Malt character suggested in the nose doesnít translate to the flavour so well leaving this one a bit like an over-hopped peach juice. Fruity esters and citrus hops with rather pronounced bitterness. Light medium body with moderate though short-lived carbonation. Bottle sampled with Altair, beerbuzzmontreal, Cathschlag, Glouglouburp, Goldorak, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Yowie.
