Southern Tier Unearthly Imperial IPA

southern_tier_unearthly

Unearthly is Southern Tier’s self-described most radical offering.   I love IPAs, and Imperial IPAs, and this is an interesting one.  It’s a big beer at 9.5% ABV, much as you’d expect for an IIPA, but there’s not nearly as much malty sweetness as I would normally expect to get from an Imperial IPA.   This is definitely more on the hoppy-side, with a flavor profile that I’d describe as more typical of a regular IPA.   It has a nice piney scent, and there is a slightly sweet malt finish.   A decent beer, but not my favorite from Southern Tier.

I give it a 3.75 out of 5.
