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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
No head. Golden body. Spicy, big hop aroma. Spiciness almost reminds me of curry. Solid spicy hoppiness, complimented with prominent bitterness in the taste. Medium body. Well made stuff.

Pours with a short head and a amber color. Mouthful tastes rather thin. Nice hop character, not an intro microbrew, but something a non-craft beer drinker should be able to handle, and a beer that experienced craft drinkers should enjoy.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 10, 2005
bottle from PineyPower. Thanks Dean! Pours a deep amber color with a small off white head. Nose is thick and malty, lots of caramel. Taste is thin at first, then a big blast of hops and caramel spew out, followed by a bitterness and a dryness upon swallowing. Some light dry notes of citrus remain in the mouth.

Quality IPA. Enjoyed at a bar in Syracuse. Not the best I’ve had, but nice hops and worth the taste.

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 (29224) - 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.
