On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor.
A: Beautiful gold with a splash of copper thrown in. Outstanding looking head that must have been at least an inch and a half.
S: Grapes, fruits, citrus, tangerine, as well as a little tart also. A very interesting smelling DIPA. I knew I had to dive right into it.
T: This was the most interesting aspects of this beer, the taste. I have very rarely had a DIPA where it hits you up front with the big DIPA taste and then seems to dissipate into such a smooth and relaxed finish. I seriously couldn't taste the 11% ABV at all. It's an outstanding tasting brew. Lots of hops, bitterness, and funky fruits like; orange, lemon zest, tart grapes, etc.
M: Medium mouth. Real smooth finish like I mentioned above. Very unique. Medium to medium high carbonation.
D: Well the smooth finish really gives this beer great drinkability. Because the ABV is hidden so well I give the drink at least an A.
Overall, I'm not sure if I liked this better than the Oak Aged or not. Both are very good but Unearthy seems to take the cake. I like the bitterness and the hops better than the Oak Aged taste. Another good one from Southern Tier.
Serving type: on-tap

4.56/5 rDev +11.8%

Poured undated 12 oz bottle into pint glass. This is excellent beer. It brings to mind "Pliney the Elder". The flavor profile is very similar. Pours a clear golden-yellow with a tinge of orange, with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Not a huge aroma, but its clean, floral and slightly dank, with some pineapple and peach. The taste is wonderful and just gets better the more you drink it. It's somewhat fruity and buttery with a perfect balance of sweet maltiness and huge hops but low bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and smooth with low carbonation, but still refreshing with well concealed alchohol. Overall, I'd say this is world class...a really great Imperial IPA.
