I decided to give this a try even though I haven't cared for other Southern Tier offerings. What a mistake.

My son bought a twelver of Bud Light Platinum and we were drinking side by side. The 2xIPA was maybe half a shade darker in the glass. The smell is pretty much Ruination mixed with water in a 1:20 ratio.

The taste up front isn't awful, but it fades so fast that it's barely recognizable as a DIPA.

With so many other options out there in the DIPA, or even IPA variety's.... this is a beer I will NEVER try again.

If this beer were a glass of wine, it would be a White Zinfandel. It would be ordered by a girl in a leopard skin tight dress from New Jersey. Sorry to offend anyone but this is awful. I'm shocked it's getting high scores from so many people. Maybe since I have had a Real IPA, then this beer is very disappointing.

Cannot understand how this is a double IPA! On what standard?! It's more like an 8.2% lite beer than a double IPA. Where's the hops?? Light in color with a very light mouth feel. Light frothy head. Clarity indicates it's. Filtered IPA. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I'm stuck with a 5 gallon keg based upon a friends recommendation. Great.

By just looking at this beer poured in a glass it looks more like a light domestic than an DIPA and it definitely doesn't taste like a x2 either. The only real taste that stands out to me is the taste of alcohol... This brew leaves me searching for more depth in flavor and that's for sure where it's lacking. Glad I only have one 12oz. bottle and not a 6 pack to drink.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Golden body topped with a bright white frothy head. Patches of soapy lacing.

No dating on the bottle, so conceivably it's older than ideal, but the hops in the nose certainly seem to be of the muted variety. Citric and earth notes are certainly there, but aren't particularly lively. Plenty of light sweet maltiness. Taste is disappointing. It's a smoothish and thickish beer with plenty of sweet pale malt, but a shortage of hop character. An odd hint of savory is almost as prominent as the muted earthy and citric hops. I might give this a try again sometime on tap, but no more undated bottles.
