Welcome to the latest (okay, first) installment of New Beer Tuesday. Here you will find a description/review of the latest beer that I've tried!
Note: I am not a beer expert. I use words like "tasty" and will never use words like "finish" or "body" 'cause I don't know what they mean! :)
Our newest contestant...Southern Tier 2X IPA!
Beer Advocate rating: A-
A refreshing, very hoppy IPA that you could easily drink all night (or day) long. While it is definitely a strong double IPA, it doesn't have the feel of a heavy imperial that leaves you feeling unrefreshed. The perfect amount of hops - enough to give it that extreme bite, but not too much so that the other flavors can't shine through.
I bought a six pack of this when I was home last weekend, and initially opened it for my dad. He, however, didn't like it and "doesn't like IPAs anymore." Whatever dad...your loss.
This is a new favorite of mine...I will definitely be drinking this again very soon.
From the brewery: Not quite an imperial, but certainly not a standard India pale ale. Our double IPA is a hop lovers dream. Citrusy and clean with an incredible finish.
I would love to be able to visit the brewery. It's not too far from here, so maybe someday!
Let me know of any new beers that you have tried lately, so that I can check them out! :)
Another note: I googled "new beer Tuesday" to see if I'm stealing anyone's idea. Turns out a blog, monkeybrewster.com has something called "new brew Tuesday." I give them props, as the word brew fits in much better than the word beer.
