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.

Medium dark amber with a decent head. Smell is great, all hops. Taste is very smooth, crisp hops. Nice little bitter aftertaste. Solid ala round brew. Thanks for this one beagle.

Damn good IPA. Nice grassy hops in the nose with a dark amber color. Flavor had a good malt backbone with sweet caramel and a great hop finish. Good blend of hop flavors -- bitter and earthy/grassy. A must have for IPA fans.

What a surprise. I had no anticipation of this beer being good, but a friend likes their porter so I thought I’d try. Wonderful beer, tastes very smooth for an IPA. Hoppy, with a great finish. Not too bitter, but bitter enough to stand out. Will definitely buy this again.

Great hop nose, flavor and very well balanced. Best ’hops in a bottle’ available.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2007
A well balanced IPA that is quenching and dry. The hops are juicy and just right for the beers gravity. The malt builds a nice backbone for the overall structure of the beer. At 6.5% it is still highly drinkable, but it will kick your butt if not paying attention. A great example of an American style IPA.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Sweet malty hoppy aroma with grapefruit hints. Sweet malty and hoppy flavor with hints of grapefruit. Sweet malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

This is my first Southern Tier. I visited a Comfort Inn in Jamestown, NY and the mart across the street was selling it. I picked it up b/c I love IPAs. The bartender at the Comfort Inn told me about them. So, here goes my first taste of Southern Tier. Pours a nice orange. Little foam. Malty smell, bitter hop aroma. Piney bitter hop aroma. Here goes the taste. WOW, was not expecting this! That’s a good IPA! Piney, bitter, yet sweet and malty. Very delicious! A nice feel in your mouth, then the after taste is just wow! Very bitter! I like this, very good, well done Southern Tier.

Looks great. Every beer I’ve had from Southern Tier tastes, looks, and smells ultra ultra fresh. This one is no exception. Smell is complex and fruity. I wish there was a rose or flower that smelled like this. Taste is really unique. It’s an IPA, hands down, but it just has tons of prickly flavors. Immediate after-taste is a little off, but hardly noticeable. Starts out smooth and creamy, then the palate does a 90 degree turn into a dry ass desert. Probably evidenced by the 6.5 ABV. Six pack for 7.49? Worth every penny.

This is a real easy drinker. Very smooth and tastes great. Golden in color on the pour with little head. Smell is slight hoppy. Taste is crisp, refreshing and nice. I could see going through a sixer of this with no problem. A solid, easily sessionable brew.

looks refreshingly good in the glass. moderately darkish and clear amber with a short foamy head. there certainly is a lot going on tastewise. all of the usual things that make an ipa nice and tasty. but for me nothing really stands out, except that there is a low malt profile. the word i keep thinking with this is moderate as in moderately...and then a bit better. and that is how i will speak to this rating. a nice safe ipa which is -moderately- refreshing. with a nice moderate carbonation and a pleasant m-----te bitterness. oh, and just a touch of quality allfruit sweetness.
