Name – Iniquity
Country – United States
Type – American Double IPA
Appearance – Pours a very deep black color that lets no light through. There is a big tan head that leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell – The nose isn’t very strong but I pick up some citrus hops and a bit of roasted notes.
Taste – Very bold and complex flavor! Roasted malts and a bit of chocolate up front followed by a pleasant smokey taste and some citrus hops. The smoke flavor it not over powering at all and sits on your tongue for a little bit after finishing.
My first jump into Southern Tier since their arrival and man am I pleased. I was expected a big bold black IPA but this was not that. The roastedness and smoke characters in it really set it apart from others in this style. I would love to have some pit made BBQ with this beer some time.
Don’t forget that I reviewed this at Dos Beerigos as well on their scale and it can be read here.
Overall Grade – A
