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.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Nice ruby-mahogonoy body with a light ivroy head. Nice aroma, but very delicate, hops are present but malts dominate leading to a sweet smell. Definatly a malted IPA, as they are the most present component of the taste. Nice bitter, smooth ending.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2006
Bottle. Copper-amber color. Floral, citrusy and raisin-like hop aroma. Rounded bittersweet flavor with floral and citrusy hops. Bittersweet finish. An oxidised bottle.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pretty standard, yet slightly above par IPA. Nice hop notes, mixed well with a nice maltiness and little else to really seperate it from the rest.

Tanker12 (173) - USA - JUN 17, 2006
Another one from the southern teir Sampler pack. Hops dominate this beer but it is complex enough to inculde many differnt undertones in both the aroma and the flavor. Great beer on a hot day.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Pours a nice amber color with minimal head. Excellent citrusy, floral hop aroma with just a note of brown sugar. Flavor is big lemony, orangy hops up front fading to a sweet malty finish.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
A decent IPA. Aroma is awesome. The aroma has hops, honey, and a fruity sweetness comprised of orange blossom, raspberry, and a hint of vanilla. The flavor includes some crushed aspirin, vanilla, carmel, and grapefruit with some orange. Not bad but not overly impressive either.

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavor starts of with the sweet malts but quickly gives way to the citrus and piney hops. Has a decently bitter finish. Just like the other brews I’ve had from Southern Tier, they are quickly becoming one of my favorite brewers. They are very good with making beers with lots of hop and bitter flavor just like I like it.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2006
(Bottled) Clear amber color with a small, tight head. Slightly sour, somewhat aromatic-hoppy, nutty aroma. Crisp, but pretty harshly hoppy flavor with some alcohol, wheat and toffee. Medium-bodied, slicky and slightly alcoholic palate with pretty low carbonation. A quite light, hoppy, but pretty harsh IPA.

From a twelve ounce bottle - Yeah, it’s an amber hued IPA with a tall head 0 It’s no "Phinn & Matt’s"!
