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.

Pours dark copper with minimal head. Lacking a little on the bitterness. Still has a very nice full flavor though. Different, but a great IPA.

Pours copper color with small head. Citrus hop scent. Nice full body on this one. Really nice citrus flavor, but not much bitterness. I’m pretty surprised with this IPA, as the piney bitterness of the hops is toned down and yet the beer does not taste the least bit watered-down. Not quite hoppy/bitter for my taste, but definitely a delicious IPA.

This tasted very very similar to the stone IPA. Aroma was a nice crisp hoppy citrus. Taste was similar, but with more bitterness than expected...maybe to much for it to be balanced. This beer also seemed to have some floral honey and starchiness in the flavor. Very drinkable and light bodied. Pretty good...but not great.

On tap at Mr Goodbars in Buffalo. I had almost given up hope of finding a good IPA in the region until I tried this one. What a fantastic surprise. On the more bitter end of the IPA continuum, but that tends to be my preference.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Courtesy of Degarth. Almost orange color, great citrusy hop flavor, maybe even slight orange, malty, great tasting IPA

Found this delightful. Would really, really like to try again as I seem to have an ever changing pallet that allows me to love a hop variety one day and possibly not as much the following week. This was just so well balanced and with hops way forward, but not aggressively so. Well done. Thanks to Shadey.

Bottle. Golden with light head. Although hoppy it does not fell bitter. Full but stil mild. A touch of citrus or lime.

kramer (5092) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2006
12 oz bottle, via rudolf. Copper colored body with a small off-white head that fades to a thin covering. Citric hop aroma with a lightly sweet malt background. Pretty low level of hoppiness in the flavor for an IPA, with a lightly bitter finish. Malt background is fairly subtle as well. Light to medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation composed of fine bubbles. Overall, a decent beer, very easy drinking and not overly aggressive.

I liked this IPA, although it was much darker than the usual IPA. My freind thought the bottle was mislabeled, as it was more like a good Scottish Ale than an IPA. Very hoppy, nice flawerful mix, no bitter aftertaste. Very Good indeed!

IndianaRed (2589) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle Pours a hazy orange, light amber. Nice fluffy off white head and blocky lacing. Aroma is very much citrusy, orange peels. Flavor is not so fruity, but mainstream moderatley hoppy. Nicely ballanced and tasty. Mild carbonation and a nice dry bitterness at the end, but not overpowering. Very tasty IPA. Thanks to Shady for this one
