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.

Bottle via my secret santa Summer 2006. The beer pours to a clean copper orange body with a thick fluffy head that is fully lasting with a gorgeous lacing. The aroma is caramelly grapefruit with a little vanilla. The flavor is more malty than hoppy and bitter. Sprucey... very sprucey. Buttery caramel. The palate is very clean. Perhaps too much so. I would expect some lingering bitterness or oilyness but there is none. The flavor leaves quickly. I was kind of let down with this one.

This beer pours a maroon color with orange highlights that has a clear body and leaves a thick tan head that leaves this beer quickly. The aroma is very faint, some caramel sweetness, and a weak presence of hops aroma. The taste more than makes up for the smell the taste is fantastic, starts bitter with a blast of grapefruit quickly followed by a smooth balancing of caramel and a nice crisp tartness to round out the flavors. The finish is soft and sweet but leaves you with a memorable bitterness bite.

This is one tasty IPA! Big floral hop-nose, beautiful reddish haze color and nice malt balance makes this beer a truely enjoyable one. Leaves a nice aftertaste as well. Drink it, don’t read this.

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 (5038) - 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.

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.
