Wow....there is alot going on with the Southern Tier 2X IPA...sheesh! The appearance is a golden yellow, clear, with little carbonation and very little, mostly non-existent head...that looks white in color. The smell is complex hops and malt. I believe the hops include Semcoe for the body and slightly citrus notes....other is possibly East Kent Hops. The other two....could possibly be casscade and ???. One of the malts used is sweet....all blended together to mask the 8%+ ABV. The taste is well balanced....hops definitely power the beer, the malt is used to keep bitterness at bay and to help clean the pallate on the after taste. Overall it is a crazy beer, definitely worth trying. One per session would be enough though.

A - Slightly hazy yellow orange beer with short tight head that fades quickly to a film and extensive lacing.
S - Solid nose of pine, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, with a mild honeyed element, presumably from the malt.
T - Stronger honey couples with a hint of lemon and a certain medicinal element. Another IPA that reminds me of a honey lemon throat lozenge, not that that is a bad thing. This is a pretty delicious brew. Middle comes with some bitterness, and that runs through the close. At the end, the honey comes back, offering a touch of sweetness.
M - Mild carbonation means the bitterness and hop oils hang around. Not a sign of the serious alcohol, though, which is a significant accomplishment.
O - This is a solid double IPA, with bright flavors. An added benefit is this quite drinkable for a DIPA. I will pick this one up again, I suspect.
