Bottle was part of the Southern Tier "SuperPack" variety case which included 2XIPA, Unearthly and Iniquity.

Poured and sampled from a DFH Pint Glass

A - Beer pours a slightly hazy, golden amber color. A fluffy, one-finger head on the initial pour that fades to a skim. Large amount of sticky lacing left after sampling.

S - A mix of pine, hops and malts. Smells a little on the sweet side.

T - A really smooth DIPA. The brew is well balanced between a piney, citrusy, pineapple (?) taste and the caramel-like sweetness of the malts. It's moderately hoppy and leaves a lingering bitterness after drinking. It's a thicker beer so it's not one you'll be downing several off. The ABV is well disguised but it does begin to poke through as the beer warms a bit.

M - Thicker consistency. Medium carbonation.

O - I enjoyed this DIPA quite a bit. Unlike others, I don't think it's overly sweet. It's a well crafted beer that I'd recommend to any IPA or DIPA lovers. Well done, Southern Tier!

Cheers!
