One Minute Beer Review- Southern Tier 2XIPA
2XIPA– Southern Tier Brewing Co, Lakewood, NY
One of my friends mentioned that Southern Tier could be comparable to the Great Divide of the North East. To that I said, why the hell is a north eastern brewery called Souther Tier… is today opposite day? However upon further review, and regained maturity, I’m starting to believe that assertion. Everything I’ve tried is a fantastic take with a slight twist on a traditional style. Most Double IPA’s are tremendously hop forward and contain a creamy, heavier feel to it. Southern Tier’s offering is a bit sweeter, a little less heavy and much easier to drink than the normal double IPA. It does pack a hoppy aftertaste.
