If you've had Bell's great Two Hearted Ale, you'll know what to expect with Southern Tier's IPA. If you haven't had Two Hearted, let me tell you what to expect:

A slightly dry and grassy floral hops bite that's wonderfully balanced with the beer's malt backbone. There are really nice fruit accents...citrus, like you'd expect from an IPA, but also cherry, strawberry, and maybe even apricot and banana.

It has some of the kick of a double IPA, even though it's "only" 6.5 ABV...it has that kind of potency and bite.

Terrrific stuff.

Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with white head with good retention and beautiful lacing properties. Aromas are wonderfully floral, tropical fruit stand-like, with a nice caramel underbelly. Tastes amazing. Starts out sweet and caramely, before piney and orange zesty hop notes dominate the mid-palate, and candied orange peel comes through on the finish. I like this a lot. What an excellent IPA.
