850th Ratebeer rating – Southern Tier Hoppe

While I have not been keeping this site up to date lately, I have not stopped drinking/collecting beer. I was excited to make my 850th Ratebeer rating this afternoon… Southern Tier Brewing Company’s Hoppe Imperial Pale Ale.

This beer pours a hazy orange/amber in color with a small white head that quickly fades. Not much carbonation. Aroma is decent mix of citrus/grapefruit hops and slightly sweet maltiness. Flavor is a nicely balanced mix of grassy and citrus hops and a goodly amount of caramel malts. Slight sweet until the hop bitterness kicks in. I liked this one…

Hiatus over…

I have been very neglectful of this blog lately… just too many things going on. I’ll try to make time to keep y’all up to date on all of my adventures in the future. Thanks for hanging in there with me and for your patience while I took a break.
