COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA stands for India Pale Ale and ours is an American version of the classic style. IPA’s namesake lies in its colonial roots. British soldiers on their way to India dark a lot of beer, but found it would go stale on the long voyages. Meanwhile, brewers knew that by adding more hops, the beer would stay fresh. Voila! A new style was born and it is one we are proud to brew. Southern Tier IPA is a triple-hopped on its journey to your glass for a fully aromatic experience.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 on tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Deep amber orange in color with nice 2 finger head. Big hop nose with citrus presence. Medium bodied & a well crafted IPA. one of the better East coast IPA’s out there.

Bottle. Dark amber color with a foamy, off-white head. Nice, full hop aroma with a good floral background. Also some citrus in there (limes) and a bit of yeast. Decent flavor also, really chewy, but not as good as the aroma. Really well balanced, I would say, but nothing fantastic. Body is a bit thin, but there is a nice full bitter finish. I’m pleasantly suprised.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange/copper with a big craggy off-white head, leaving striped and patchy lacing. Sweet aromas of caramel and orangey hops. Flavor of caramel and toffee malts infused with citrus and grassy hops. An interesting red apple peel note as well. Seems fruitier than other IPAs. Nice spicy finish. Pretty good.

DeaconBluez (4) - Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2007 does not count
pours a nice deep amber color. head is of an off white color. very citusy and piney smell. hints of biscuits and caramels. taste is of sweet malts that gives way to fruity hops. the taste is really well balanced. mouthfeel is somewhat creamy. just the right amount of carbonation. this is an great ipa. i would love to get a sixer of this. would make for a pretty good session beer.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Nice heady copper pour. Nose of apricot and navel oranges. Well balanced, medium body. Mild carbonation, well done, with a touch of vanilla in the finish. Great balance. This beer doesn’t hold up for sh#@ though, not like an ipa should, anyway. Yum.
