Southern Tier Gemini

CIMG5543

This “Imperial Blended Ale” is half Unearthly and half Hoppe. I’m a huge fan of the Unearthly, so I’m a bit skeptical about this one. Let’s see how this blended ale is.

Stats:
American Strong Ale. 9.0% ABV. New York. Limited Release.

Dark golden color with a fantastic head.

Big hoppy nose that’s bringing quite a bit of a piney-earthy aroma. A hint of citrus cuts it a bit.

Mouthfeel is nice and full bodied with lower amount of carbonation.

Piney hops with a bit of earthy-mushroom. The orange and lemon flavor appears just after that and leaves with a nice vanilla and orange sherbert flavor. Medium bitterness with a sweetness, and you can’t taste the alcohol.

This is a little bit too easy drinking. It’s a decent brew, but honestly, I love Unearthly, and would much rather drink that. 89 points.
