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.

Ruby in color after pouring. Little to no head. Smells of hops and floral, but just slightly. Earthy smelling. Tastes a little dry but not to much bitterness, almost sweet. Tastes very light on the palate; easy to drink with a lingering taste in the mouth even after it goes down. The taste is also earthy, but seems to have lost the floral that I smelled. A decent beer, but nothing I will jump for joy over.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Amber body with a huge rocky beige head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is super hopped with loads of floral and peppery character. Really intense. Solid malt backbone which lingers into the sweet finish. Somewhat overcarbonated, but okay. A really nice brew.

(12oz bottle) Clear amber body topped by a small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/pine, some caramel, cookie, light floral/orange. Taste is medium sweet, orange, caramel, some grapefruit. Medium body, some stickiness, nicely drinkable. Not to be mistaken for a West Coast IPA, this is nevertheless a fine beer.

milewide (2073) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 Liked it better on second try. A touch sweeter than other IPAs, but good balance between malt and hops. Lingering bitterness that I liked.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Crystal clear, medium copper color with small off white head. Aroma is malty, slightly sweet, fair amount of caramel, vanilla, and kilned malts. Flavor is a bit malty with some caramel, almost iced-tea like, a touch of citrusy hops. Finish is relitively dry, balanced.

Pours golden with white head. Lemony citrus scent. Candy like malt backed by a flowery/lemony hop.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bad label, bad cap. Brownish amber, thin lacy head. An interesting aroma - at first very loud hops, then settling out to a pleasant caramel. Herbal tones, medium-light sweetness, med heavy bittering, caramel, a bit of roastiness. Medium body. A grassy, malty finish. Pretty good. Definite NY craftbrew specimen.

A nice example of an IPA that just doesn’t see the light of day on the West Coast. Aroma is very malt forward with a nice citrus aroma with floral bits hiding around. Appearance a nice bright amber color. Flavors are very nicely balanced, with the hops being grapefruity and grassy (perhaps Amarillo and Saaz?) and lightly floral. Nice beer!
