Southern Tier 2xOne
Southern Tier 2xOne is an American Pale Ale. The malt and hop pairing will be changed yearly in this seasonal beer. For this year it is Mosaic Hops and Special Pale Malt. This imperial pale ale clocks in at a big 8.1% ABV. Not always the biggest fan of Southern Tier pale beers in the past, but a few recently have me trying more. Not hard to grab one of these since I’m really into beers brewed with Mosaic right now.
A nice tropical nose is the first indication that my instincts are right , I am going to like this. The taste is great too, a little topical, a little pine, a little booze and a touch of basic pale malt. The biggest drawback is the alcohol heat really, otherwise this is a really good APA. I just might have to invest in a whole six pack of this one!
