A - Light yellow-orange. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?

S - Great hop smell. Fruit, pine, and a little spice.

T - Not as much fruit in the taste. Tastes much lighter than 8.2%. Good balance of hop flavor and bitterness. Not nearly as malty as Dogfish Head 60, which is probably why I like it more.

M - Very light for a DIPA, easy to drink.

O - Another phenomenal value in the IPA/DIPA category as I can get this for $9.99 a six pack. I first tried this together with Dogfish Head 60, Dogfish Head 90, and Southern Tier IPA. While it isn't as good as Dogfish Head 90, both of the Southern Teir IPAs were better than Dogfish Head 60 IMO.

Southern Tier 2XIPA has a medium, white head, a clear, yellow-golden appearance, a center bubble stream, and, more or less, no lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong, citrus (think grapefruit) and possibly some bread. Taste is of not-particularly-bitter citrusy hops, citrus fruit (again, grapefruit), and there is a very subtle background grain husk. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Southern Tier 2XIPA finishes dry, sweet, mildly bitter, and drinkable. One would never guess that it is an 8.2% abv ale, from the drinking. Overall, this is really interesting, and I score it as excellent.
