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.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2007
On tap. Straw color with a thin, light white head. Nice moderately thick, sticky palate. Floral, citrusy hop aroma with a clean profile. Smooth taste, clean lemony hop finish that lingers nicely on the palate, but doesn’t wreck the palate. Very drinkable while still being hoppy.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Poured a crisp orange/bronze color with a decent creamy head. Smell of pines/grass and hops dominate the nose. Pine is the overwhelming smell. Tastes very hoppy with a hint of pine and sweetness. The finish is nice and sweet and the hops don’t dominate this IPA like many others. It isn’t my favorite IPA, but overall an extremely good beer.

Clear, golden amber in color, carmel head. Very woodsy hop aroma. Very pleasant hoppy start, sweet, almost winey, finish. A nice IPA.

frankenkitty (1962) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Pours a light-hazed copper with mild carbonation and a cream-colored head that holds and laces in light spackles. Sharp, PNW hops are rather mouthwatering with their grapefruit and pine, but I also detect quite a helping of caramel malts to help balance it out. Spicy on the tongue and lips, this brew is mid-bodied yet fairly dry. Flavor finds a pleasant mix of sweet & bitter, lingering on the latter. Orange, lemon & grapefruit all make an appearance, carried by a tea-like base of English-style malts. Very nicely done.

The IPA that single-handedly got me into drinking IPAs. Amber color when poured, small off-white head. Quite hoppy, but leaves residual traces of sweetness, akin to caramel, with a touch of citrus notes. Good mouthfeel. I highly recommend this one, as well as a lot of other brews from Southern Tier.

Bottle. Pours clear and light copper, with a thick off-white head. Despite the head cold, the hop aroma cuts through; more resin than floral. Light body, with a sweeter than expected finish.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Pours a light amber color with a small, fizzy white head. Quickly diminishing head. Fair lacing. Aroma is of bread malts with a sweet kick, perhaps caramel, as well as hops in the form of light grass. Initially sweet, and then moving to a moderately bitter finish with a bite. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery texture with soft carbonation. Reviewed on December 18th, 2006.
