BEER HAIKU # 24 Southern Tier 2XIPA

We held off publishing the haiku from new release Tuesday this week. There was a couple of extra contributions to the blog so I thought I’d save the haiku for the forecast rainy weekend. It’s a day for the pub…

This week Hashigo offered another beer from the Southern Tier brewery in the United States. Kate thought that this deeply golden brew came across as a bit flat, a little gentle at first taste, while the gingerbeardedman ruminated on what he described as its “rich and weighty, almost cakey,” character. Coincidentally, it was also a Thirstyboy’s birthday so the cakey reference was spot on. There were a couple of anonymous quotes such as “This is the type of beer you have after a sh*tty day…I’ve had a sh*tty week!” and “reminds me of a beer I drank in Hamilton.” Anyway, here’s the haiku…
