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. About one finger of fluffy head. Leaves good lacing as the beer is drank.

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. 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.
