IPA stands for India Pale Ale and ours is an American version of the classic style. IPAís 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.

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 Iíve 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 (4700) - 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.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange amber. Aroma is very piney with sharp citrus (grapefruit). Just a bit of malt for balance. Better than most, but not the best.

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 (5214) - 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.

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.
