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.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 A little bit too thick and syrupy for me. Not a bad ipa if you like yours a little heavier.

thedm (5164) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 8, 2006
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body. The aroma was mild with mild hoppy and caramel notes. The mouth feel was mildly tingly from the hops and the flavor was mild hop and caramel malty.

Clean looking beer. Hoppy scent with some floral aroma. Flavor is mostly hops with a biscuity malt hint and a dry sweet finish.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 18, 2006
Thanks to JFURYCAT for trade. Pours a translucent golden orange amber with a medium foamy off white head that left some lacing and sustained. Aroma of citrus (mostly orange), pine and some caramel maltiness. Flavor more of a piney grapefruit with a decent malt balance and slight bitterness. Very solid IPA.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 Tap at David Copperfields. Pale orange colour. Fresh hoppy aromas of grapefruit, pine and tropical pineapple. Light pale malt, some orange peel as well. Really juicy smelling. Flavour delivers, hoppy and tropical with fresh pine and fantastic citrus/fruit flavours. Lots of sweet caramelly maltiness underneath the rich tropical hops. Well-balanced and quite tasty.

thornecb (4881) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Head quickly recedes to skim the surface. Citrus and pine notes. Well balanced with up front malts which quickly turn to a lasting bitter hop finish.

Kevin (2156) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Dark tan pour with a lasting cream head. Sweet candy orange aroma with touches of vanilla and walnut. I really like this aroma, it is inviting. Orange grass flavor that immediately asserts itself. A bitter little bugger for sure. Nice sweet side comes through midtatste with honey cream and vanilla. Finish is more grass hops and a little tart fruit. I like this one. It is a good one to have while getting paperwork in order to file my taxes. Ap-4 ar-9 tas-7 pal-4 ov-17
