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.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 24, 2005
Coppery color with a thick, creamy white head, nice lacing. Aromatic, hoppy nose - citrus and spruce. Flavor is not as radically hoppy as many IPAs, and is smoothed out by a sweet malty background. Finishes very well.

pineypower (2719) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2005
Pours out a nice copper color with a smooth white foamy head. The aroma is nice and hoppy. THe flavor is very smooth, not as hoppy as some of my favorites, but still a great brew, the way an IPA should be

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle - thanks to slob for this one! Pours dark orangey-copper with a creamy off-white head that lingers well and leaves good lacing. Aroma is the nice rich combo of caramelly malts and floral/citrus hops that characterizes the IPA’s I love so well. Flavor is quite sweet with a good hop bite in the finish. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Nice brew, thanks Bert.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2005
Great aroma of citrusy, fruity hops! Got some grapefruit and orange in there. Clear amber color, small white head leaves good lacing. Crisp hoppy flavor, citrusy and floral, nice biscuit and honey malt to support, dry bitterness in the finish. Medium body, very drinkable. In an age of over-the-top double and triple IPAs, this crisp and balanced IPA is very refreshing (both figuratively and literally).

radiomgb (2478) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle. Orange/amber in colour. Aroma of cookie malts, light citrus and flowers. The flavour was of hops up front (mainly citrus, some floral) and cookie malt in back. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. FInishes with a lingering bitterness.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
Slightly malty aromas offset the initial citrus hops. Nice coppery body with a creamy medium mouthfeel. Not too bitter - in fact perhaps could be a touch hoppier and more bitter. Nice though.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2005
copper-amberish in color witha meium sized off-white head. Good citrus hop aroma, nicel balanced taste of grapefruit like hops and sweet malt. not as hoppy as i like an IPA, but nonetheless a very solid one.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Clear reddish-orange body, nice creamy off-white head with orange hints. Very nice cascadey hop aroma, with some peppery citrus peel edge. First flavor picked up is a bitter and bright / juicy orange hop thing, with just enough sweet malt to keep it balanced. Very good overall... very smooth hop presence reminiscent of 3F Alpha King.

Reid (2063) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Nice looking beer to look at, again its adarker amber than i am used to in an IPA( is this an eastcoast vs west coast thing?),nice sized off white head, leaves nice lace down the glass. Nice smooth malty/hoppy aroma, delightful. This is pretty well balanced, the malts do get a chance to shine in the first half of the mouthful, then a resinous bitter,hoppiness takes over and subsides somewhat at the end. Nice on the palte, quite smooth. Very nice drinkable IPA, would have again easily. Thanks to Jah Noth for this beer!

Smells good. Grapefruit. Tastes OK too. Well rounded beer but I’m pretty drunk. OK
