22oz bottle sent to me by grub. Thanks so much! Poured into a tulip glass.

Pours alight copper-orange colour, ligtly hazy and mildly carbonated. Big 1 1/2 inch cream coloured head caps it and retains well, leaves lots of lacing. Exceptionally floral aroma backed up by pine, mango, grapefruit, orange peel with a hefty malt backbone. Vanilla and Caramel notes in the background. It's one of those beers you just can't stop smelling it's so good.

Taste is explosive to say the least. Lovely delicate floral sweetness at the top, and then a poof of alcohol goes straight to the nose and then all sense of delicacy goes out the window. Pine, Black Licorice, Orange Peel bitterness. Very herbal hop profile to be sure, a bit medicinal. There's a super-hefty malt bill too, but all that lovely butterscotch and vanilla flavour gets dominated by the hops. Finish is aggresively bitter and fairly dry with nothing but hops left behind. Mouthfeel is buzzing from all the hops and the fairly agressive carbonation, the body is a bit thick and the booze definitely comes through. This is a balls out Double IPA, perhaps the most bitter I've had to date. I find many tend to be more balanced than this, but this is a straight-up hop bomb with no apologies. My first Southern Tier does not disappoint.

A- Clear, light copper. Medium head that settles quickly. Mild lacing.

S- Sweet bread, pine, lemon, pepper

T- as it smells but way too much alcohol.

M- Med/Oily

I guess I'd say I'm a little disappointed, only b/c I was looking forward to trying this one. The alcohol comes through too much.
