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.

Not too fruity, not too bitter, it’s a wonderful beer to drink without food.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle, clear ambery pour. Hoppy, citric rindy aroma, with some malt character - but the hops are the nose. More citric piney hop flavors predominantly, with caramel crystal malt backbone. The hop flavors themselves struck me as a little harsh, and notes of alcohol came through as well. Decent IPA.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Bottle (thanks Jah Noth). Pours a clear amber color. A nose of flowery hops and strong caramel and malt. This is my first "eastern IPA" and i can tell... seems the PNW likes to over-do hops, were as this brew is moderatly hopped. Almost reminded me of a weaker barley wine or strong ale. Flavors of caramel, plum, and honey.

Ungstrup (28463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2005
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and flowers - like sticking Your head into a blooming bush, but also a nice deal of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and hops. OK IPA.

Twentys (41) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Had on tap at Benchwarmer’s in Ithaca, NY. Smells/tastes of super citrus, harshly & deliciously bitter. A mouthfull of a beer. Great lacing.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Poured a clear effervescent dark amber with a tall semi-creamy off-white head. Clean piney and grassy hop aroma. Taste is light and clean, with piney hops predominating with a touch of sticky malt. Not too big or overwhelming... just refreshing. Nicely done; an easy-drinking anytime IPA.

hopdog (8529) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with SpringsLicker (thanks!). Poured a dark amber color with a small sized off white head. As soon as I poured this, I was hit with a juicy orange aroma that turned to mainly pine. Tastes of pine, oranges, and caramel Nice medium bitter to lightly sweet balance.
