Definetly a fan of this one, although 1.5xIPA is probably a better(more correct) name. Solid golden straw in color and poured a beautiful 2 finger solid foamy head with great sticky intricate lacing.

Smell was smooth for a lack of a better term with mild hints of hops and maltiness. The taste was similar with a well rounded balanced taste of hops and malts, sweet almost honey-like at the end with an ever so so faint alchhol twinge at the back of the tounge. SWEEET!

Mouthfeel was right where it should be and this is one very drinkable(POUNDABLE) brew. Good stuff Maynard!

Southern Tier makes some of my favorite stouts. Have yet to try their IPA until right now. As I write this review is THE first time I'm trying it. Dogfish Head is usually my go-to for IPA's.

Look: Golden yellow, not clear. Has a hazy look to it. Very gentel pour produced very little head. I had to slow down because I thought I was going to over fill my "12oz" tulip glass. I say 12oz in quotes because 12oz is a lie. can't fit a ful beer in it.

Smell: Flowers, grassy, sweet citrus, hops. Pretty standard for an IPA.

Taste: Grapefruit, somewhat lemony. Definitely has a hoppy finish, but it's not overpowering. I like it that way. I'd rate the taste as perfect. One of the better IPA's I've had. This is how I want an IPA to taste.

Mouthfeel: Pretty light-medium bodied. Easy drinking. I'm already half way through the glass in a matter of minutes.

Overall: I'm not really an IPA kind of guy. I like some, but I've had a lot of highly regarded IPA's that I absolutely hated. I don't review them because I feel in order to review a beer, I need to get through a full glass. And some IPA's, I just can't. They taste like I'm drinking soap. But the 2XIPA isn't that way. It has a nice sweet blend to ease the bitter hops. It rivals DFH 90 minute. I would definitely drink more 2XIPA, and may go down as one of the great IPA's, as far as I'm concerned.

3.7/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pour a extremely light golden hue with solid effervescence and bubbling carbonation. The light color was worrisome that it would lack flavor. Strong aroma of pine and bitter floral hops. Taste was better than the appearance indicated, smooth with good carbonation. Tastes of caramel and malt with balanced hops. This was a good beer.
