Lately I’ve been on a bit of a Southern Tier kick. I’ve had quite a few of their selections so far, and I’m always looking for more.
Their regularly available selections (at least for me) are pretty darn good. Pale and Phin and Matt’s are both nice pale ale selections. Their IPA and 2xIPA are also quite tasty. I’ve been mixing in a sixer of each of these about once a week for the last few months, and I like them all. I’d probably say I like the regular IPA the best out of these, but they’re all tasty.
There’s some slightly more over-the-top choices I’ve had from Southern Tier as well. Today I’m having the Krampus Imperial Helles Lager, a pretty strong American Double Pilsner. It’s got a lot of hops, plenty of malts, and fairly notable alcohol, but is pretty darn good, and rated pretty highly in its category.
The Iniquity Imperial Black Ale is really good! Definitely not a session ale, this one is really strong but bursting with great flavor!
I wasn’t that fond of the Old Man Winter Ale, but it’s rated fairly well.
Creme Brulee was really tasty, very much a dessert beer. It was heavy, very sweet, syrupy, and tasted much like its name.
Unearthly Imperial IPA is quite tasty too, over-the-top in its oily hoppiness!
And Halloween wouldn’t be the same without my annual bottle of Pumking. Very much like drinking a pumpkin pie, this one is heavily spiced, high in alcohol, and big on deliciousness.
Later tonight or perhaps tomorrow, I’ll be trying the Choklat, an imperial stout that’s highly rated. Can’t wait!!
