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.

12oz bottle spills out a nice pour with lasting tan head. Pretty full aroma with floral hops and sweet malts. The taste starts with a somewhat viscous mouth feel that greets my taste buds with a solid lightly roasted maltiness. Then the floral hops enter in an un-assuming manner. Beyond midway a slight medicinal flavors rises up to hinder the experience some.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a moderate, yellow-white head. Very, very mild aroma of malt with no citrus or pine detected at all, which I thought odd for an IPA. Some mild caramel and grapefruit notes come through in the flavor, but again very mild. Some bitterness at the finish. Unremarkable.

12oz - Aroma is mostly malts, caramel and earty hops that become stronger as the brew warms. Pours transparent copper with a small ring for head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the hops flexing thier muscles. Palate is sticky and tart at first, then turns creamy. A well balanced ipa.

NJBeerman013 (1052) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a burnt golden in color with a fluffy white head. A ton of hops with a fresh citrusy aroma that shows evident in the flavor as well. Clean and crisp, proving an excellent example of the style.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar. Poured a dark redish gold with a thick white head. There was a lot of citrus and hops in the aroma which carried over into the taste, along with some bites of pine and lemon grass. Very good ale.

Pours a clear golden brown with very little foam and head, a very prominent aroma of hops is followed by a mildly bitter tasting beer... has a nice finish to it

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2007
Bottle. semi hazy gold color with small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, mainly grapefruit. The taste was of citrus hops and light caramel. Medium body. Good bitter finish. Weird, the flavors vanish quickly from the mouth.

Thanks to Duane for giving me a bottle. The body is relatively pale with a medium gold color that is tinted bronze. The white head is thin, but stays around. The aroma is interesting with some old dusty books, grapefruit and some toffee. The taste is fairly dry with a little bit of orange peel zest and some dried tobacco. There is also a dry note of hay in the finish. This is thin and uninteresting. I am not very impressed with this beer, maybe it is better when more fresh.

12 oz. bottle. pleasant aroma of citrus and some pine. color is a deep amber with a small slightly off-white head. flavor is not what many IPA’s have become. it is not a mass infusion of hops in your face type of brew. instead its kinda subtle but in a good way. citrus character seems to linger without a lot of bitterness. nice beer.
