Southern Tier Unearthly Imperial India Pale Ale

Week 12 - 52 Beers: Southern Tier Un-Earthly Imperial Indian Pale Ale IPA

The Southern Tier Unearthly Imperial IPA is an unbelievable beverage. From the first crack of the bottle cap to the last sip, this beer engulfs the drinker in an invisible green cloud of some crazy insane hop aroma. The beer pours a darkish honey color with a thick sticky white head. The beer balances this insane hoppyness with the malt to give it an incredible flavor and mouthfeel. It is like hop Koolaide (OH YEAH!) without any hop harshness. It is a very drinkable beer. The 11% ABV is undetectable in the flavor and sneaks up on you. My dream is to one day make a pilgrimage to the brewery in Lakewood, New York and drink this on tap.

CHEERS!

I love that beer and I especially love the second photo. Southern Tier needs to get to Indiana bad.
