Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA kicks off the new year

Southern Tier 2X Oak'd IPA

Southern Tier 2X Oak’d IPA is now hitting shelves, 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 is now apart of the brewery’s lineup as the new year gets underway. 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.
