Back-dating this one from memory. Bottle to glass. Have had this many times, but never rated it. I think itís an under-rated double IPA honestly. Pours golden yellow and a bit cloudy. Aroma bursting with citrus, pine, earth, and floral. Taste is balanced nicely with the fruits and pine and a lingering bitter. A bit dry to finish. I did taste some of the alcohol though, I didnít think it was well masked, but this is a superb beer.

From the 650 ml. bottle. I have been meaning to try this one for awhile. The pour is medium amber orange with a quick living white fizzy head. All those earthy hops on the nose! It really feels deep. The body is medium to full. The taste has a nice malty fee with a full hoppy feel. This gets decent ratings for a reason.

Golden orange with small off white head. Pine and citrus hop aroma. Medium full body. Just a bit of alcohol. Flavor is resiny hops, sweet up front, dry finish, reasonable malt balance. Fairly smooth. Nice overall.

22oz bottle from a Wegmanís in Buffalo, NY. A treat saved for the last night of this trip, as Iíve been impressed by this brewery.

An attractive golden amber pour with a loose off-white head; the aroma is soft and enticing with some citrus, woody notes, apricots, and soused raisins all coming through; equally itís luxurious in the mouth, soft and oily, and very vinuous, you can taste the alcohol, but it doesnít burn; the finish is syrupy, but also has fresh lemon so that itís not cloying. Definitely a beer to savour and sip slowly all evening, and as it happens an excellent accompaniment to a plate of strong cheeses and dried fruit.

Definitely has a hoppy smell, but there are more layers to it - not just a hop bomb. Aggressive but not overly sweet malt bill to balance things out. Nice natural grassy aroma. Pours a dark golden color with a lot of carbonation and a fairly large white head of foam. Nice, refreshing, easy drinking taste. Hops are present, but subdued - you can barely tell itís a DIPA. Honey-like taste in the background, sort of like Bells Hopslam. Great served cold on a hot summer day. I could drink this one out of the bottle while barbecuing. Palate is just oily/slick enough, just fizzy enough. Again, a great balance. I really enjoyed this one; I will be sure to remember it. Sometimes you donít want a hop assault, you just want a nice refreshing beer. While other DIPAs are all trying to outdo one another to see who can have the most hop bitterness, Unearthly has carved out a niche as being the easy drinking one. Well done, Southern Tier.

Bomber, from Slider's Sports Bar in West Hartford, CT. Clear orange amber pour with a light khaki head. Nose is pine with earthy hops and sweet citrus. Orange and pineapple come through with a mild caramel malt. Taste is very hoppy, pine and citrus. Orange and a pineapple, caramel sweetness. Good stuff.

The aroma is fantastic. Lots of pine, lemon, biscuit, and some pear. A nice thick, creamy head. There isnít as much balance in the taste. Mostly bitter bread. The alcohol comes through a little like gin. Mouthfeel starts like light syrup and suddenly dries up. Interesting, but not great.

Ericular (572) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with short-lived head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and spoiled hops. Taste is soapy, spoiled, with an alcohol finish. Pissed because I bought a relatively expensive Southern Tier 12-pack IPA sampler with NO DATE on the sealed box, from a liquor store that opened 2 months ago. How could they be anything but fresh? Lo and behold, the bottles inside are date stamped, and they are range from 10 to 12 months old. I imagine theyíll all be pretty useless. What a shame.

neuromatt (1106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the tasting room, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a large beige head that remains and laces well. The nose is huge pine, along with grass, slight citrus and biscuity malts. The flavour is balanced between medium sweet with honey, caramel and pale malts on the one hand and pungent piney and fruity hops. The finish is long and hoppy with a subtle pepperiness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, a very nice double IPA, but not as complex as it could be for this ABV. 2014-04-26
