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.

Pours a darker golden yellow with a plump finger of white foam.

Citrusy fruit notes of orange and lemon peel with nice caramel malt and a hint of pine.

Sweet caramelly malts, orange, lemon, grass, and pine.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter, dry finish.

Overall, another solid DIPA from Southern Tier, really digging them.
