Is it Un*earthly yet?

Indeed this one is UnEarthly right about now! The smell is nice and floral/citrus like and there is a little bit of an herbal element as well.
Taste has a hint of orange, clearly a bitter smack after the sip but nothing compared to something like a Ruination, very smooth though. No longer 'grassy' at all and the Styrian Golding aroma addition definetly gave it a really nice woody characteristic.
Mouthfeel is pretty thick which was expected with a FG of 1.022
Appearance is a dark brown, something between cardboard and a coca-cola with the clarity being reasonable (area for improvement here!)

Overall I am a gigantic fan of this beer and will probably enter it into some competitions (if I can convince myself to part with some bottles...). I realize this beer has a TON of hops so I might try and reduce the additions at each time point by a little bit, potentially following a hop schedule similar to a 60 minute IPA but we will see in time.
The last time I compared this to the real thing at the end of July it was not even close (still really green) but with the additional 3 months of age (total right now is exactly 4 months).

I recently tried my first Unearthly and was blown away. The strong malt backbone with the full hops aroma and taste without the bitterness is what I am sfter.

I do not yet have the brewing chops to tackle that recipe, so I was really interested in the final result. Sounds it was worth the wait. Thanks for the update.

I had this beer for the first time the other night and it instantly skyrocketed to the top of my list. I'm a bigtime IPA guy and want my IPA's to taste like someone rung out hops into a glass. Not only does it have that taste, but it's done well. It finishes clean and if someone told me it was a 6% I would have believed them... no burn.

This brew is unreal. The 11% buzz after a few is a lovely bonus.

Just though another update might be nice for those that might want to brew this in the future. We are past the 6 months of bottle conditioning now and the alcohol burn is still slightly noticeable but fades into the background after about half a glass. The aroma has faded a touch but the hops are still right up front.
I think I may be trying this one again around the same time this year (June) but will probably decrease the sugar and mash a little bit more grain since I can easily handle 5.5lbs in a partial mash.
I will keep this updated periodically since I truly want to nail this one down as time goes on...

Or you could just buy the stuff right from Southern Tier and support a microbrew

Sorry to raise this one back from the dead but I just had my first un*earthly and I am sold. This is a great beer. I've had a couple great beers between yesterday and today.

Pliny the Elder
Blind Pig
Drakes Jolly Roger 2010 Imperial Red
Stone Ruination
Southern Tier Un*Earthly

All have been really great. I am now a huge fan of the Un*Earthly and would love to make a batch of this. Hopefully someone has found a recipe for it.

If you have it, I'd LOVE it!

My email is jack_22m_2000@yahoo.com if that makes it easier.

Thanks a million!

I had one of these the other night. It was the oak aged version.

Liquid Sin in a bottle.

If you've never had one do yourself a favor, buy a few.
