Beer/Brewery - Southern Tier 2XIPA/Southern Tier
City/State- Lakewood, New York
STYLE – American Double / Imperial IPA
ABV – 8.2%
IBU – Unknown
DATE – 17 JUN 2011
SERVING TYPE – 12 ox Bottle
GLASSWARE – Short Pilsner
APPEARANCE – Clear yellow with a nice stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, although there is not a very good head on the beer just a thin layer across the top
AROMA- I do not even need to bring the glass to my nose I can smell the hops already. Nice hop smell with a sweet grapefruit as well.
TASTE – Very mild in the beginning but a hit of grapefruit on the after note. No linger after taste though.
MOUTHFEEL – Very light on the tongue and a nice carbonation that linger for about 45 seconds after each sip.
CONCLUSION – I would have to say out of all the IPAs I have tried this week (It has been IPA week for me) this is by far me favorite. Not to hoppy but enough to let you know it is there.

While still better than the majority of mass-produces beer, this is a representation of the style I am not fond of. It's all hops with just a bit of malt sweetness before the hops take over.
Pine-y resins of hops comes through on the pour, with a pale wheat-straw colour giving up a decent-sized head that dissipated quickly, leaving very little lacing. The taste was as I described above - you get a malty sweetness on the tongue that quickly gives way to the 4 varieties of hops used in this brew. This BA cannot taste any hidden notes of fruits. Finish is very dry & bitter, and this lingers for quite a while on the palate. Mouthfeel is decent, a little thick & with good carbonation.
Overall, not a favourite of mine.
