Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA debuts in January

Southern Tier 2X Oak'd IPA

Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA will debut in January, giving you an oaky way to start the new year.

A few years ago, the Lakewood, New York based brewery had an oaky rendition of their year-round Unearthly IPA, known as Oak Aged Unearthly. By our best estimates, that beer was retired over two years ago. Next year, the oak is coming back, with a syrupy friend.

Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA is joining the brewery’s seasonal lineup in January. It too is an imperial India pale ale aged on French oak chips, featuring Centennial, Chinook, and Cascade hops, four malts, plus a new ingredient – New York maple syrup. The resulting beer full of citrus and pine up front, with a touch of maple sweetness in the finish.

…Roasted malts bring a deep amber hue that’s matched by drums of maple syrup, which are added to help boost fermentation & provide a clean, earthy component with a slight residual sweetness.

Expect Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA in 12 ounce bottles and draft starting in January, 2017.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Maple Syrup. Oak Aged.)

Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Spring Seasonal.

Debut: January, 2017
