another sampling from the distributor i know
southern tier 2xipa.
poured golden with white head. persistent, not so creamy. somewhat turbid. i expected more amber in color and am pleasantly surprised that the color was not typical of many of the style. both strong hop, but crisp in nature and not so fruity, solid malt aroma. the malt comes through, i think on the flavor more than the hops and is slightly sticky on the finish like sucking on a lollipop, but overall this was a pretty good beer, especially since i think so many of the ipas seem to be hopped with asparagus.
