Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a beautiful orange copper that looks incredible.

S: Bam!!! Bready, malty,and most of all hoppy with grass, grapefruit, and pine.

T: A bunch of hops with a nice bready finish. Superb!! Blown away for the price of this one.

M: Solid with a medium balance and not too much bitterness on the finish.

Wow, this really competes with UnEarthly, which is not easy!

Served in a Pint Glass.

A: Nice dark gold, Pale honey color with about a 2 1/2 finger head, and mildly cloudy.

S: Clean Citus Aroma with floral hints.

T: In my opinion one of the easiest double's to drink. Very smooth, clean, and refreshing. Big tastes of Orange. Slightly grassy. Would not believe it was 8.2%ABV if it didn't say so on the label. This stuff can really creep up on ya if you're not careful!

M: The bubbles in this brew play such a big part releasing all the citrus & floral notes.

O: Southern Tier does it every time. This is probably my favorite brew from the guys at southern. I'll claim every now and then i've found a new "best i.p.a" until of course I go back and have another southern tier x2 IPA. Truly one of my favorites.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a Pint Glass.

A: There was a pale honey color with tiny bubbles floating to the top of the glass. There was very little head on the pour.

S: Aside from what was in the bottle there was very little aroma to be found. But the beer makes it up in the...

T: There was a strong citrus flavor that was smooth to the tongue. After that, a crisp clean taste stays on your pallet.

M: The tiny bubbles of the ale really helps deliver the citrus taste of the excellent IPA.

O: I have really fallen in love with Southern Tier. I haven't had a beer from them that I didn't like. This has to be one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Between my migh score on the mouthfeel and taste I would recommend this to anyone who wants a fresh, crisp IPA.
