Brewery: Southern Tier | Beer: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Beer Advocate Review Average (rAvg): 88
I really enjoy the Southern Tier IPA. It has a smooth mouth feel and it's not too floral-y or hoppy for those trying to get into the IPAs for Summer(please note that I am in no way a professional beer taster). Actually, there's a huge contrast between the S.T. IPA and say, a Dogfishhead 60 min. The notes aren't too deep and it is a lot smoother than most IPAs I'm used to. This also is probably part of the reason it didn't get a higher score on Beer Advocate. Nothing too special or different coming out of this beer, just a smooth and fresh feeling taste with notes I personally describe as slightly bitter, fresh (almost a nature smell), and ending dry on the tongue.
With Summer coming to a close, I thought to document some of the IPAs I had over the last few months. Looking forward to Pumpkin Beer and Harvest Ales! I always enjoy getting a beer recommendation and thought these kind of posts could be useful for any readers out there! Bottoms Up!
I welcome all suggestions!
