Crockett (1117) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2012 Pretty much exactly what I was expecting from this quickly emerging into a favourite brewery. Thin white head ontop of a light amber clear beer. Nose of very fresh hops, citrus, pine forest, honey and soil. Flavours really pronouce fresh leafy hop, a deeper rich medicinal flavour. Personally, I get a very antiseptic flavour, surprisingly pleasant. It kind of tastes like novocaine. The body of the beer is relatively light considering that this is such a "big beer". It was a real pleasure. (original rating winter 2007)

Bottle. Hops and citrus aroma. Flavor was a sugary version of the same, although it seemed more "flowery: and "perfumy". Not what I was expecting. Couldn’t finish the bottle.

Shared with Kinz for an impromptu tasting. Clear copper amber body with a small off-white head. Sweet fresh floral and light citrus hops aroma. Sweet citrus hops flavor with a caramel background.

As soon as I poured this in the glass i could smell the fruity hops wafting to my nose. Grapefruit and some citrus flavors. Big sweet, full bodied double IPA. The aroma is ridiculous but the flavor is a little lacking. Not very complex apart from the slight citrus and big sweetness.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2007
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.

LearninBeer (598) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2007
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. There’s 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. There’s not much I can say about the flavor that hasn’t 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
