Appearance: pours a 3" fluffy white head that recedes slowly with significant lacing. Color is deep golden and mostly clear, but there is a tiny bit of sediment present. Carbonation is heavy.
Aroma: heavy citrus presence -- orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. There is also some mild malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and sticky with a mostly dry finish.
Flavor: echoes the aroma. The citrus hops are powerful throughout the taste but there is some pleasant malt sweetness in the middle and finish.

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.
