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 5, 2005 Wow, you taste an IPA like this and you really get it. There is alot of hops, AND you can still taste the sweet malted barley, very nice.

A little watery, but a nicely malty and subtley hoppy brew. Not overwhelming like a lot of west coast IPA’s. If you prefer the IPA with a crisper and subtler taste, than this is the brew for you. A dark brown amber appearance and a frothy white head. Not overwhelming to the tastebuds. A good starter beer when introducing to micros.

man this IPA has a killer hop aroma- like you are sticking your nose into a bowl of hops! The appearance is really nice too, as is most of the southern tier brews- a nice amber with good lacing- not so much thick but good retention. The thing I like the best about this IPA is while it is not my favorite, it really accomplishes its brewer’s goal- to make an accessible yet authentic IPA. ’Filtered and clean finish ’ wouldn’t normally turn me on to an IPA, but this, like SNPA, is something I could show my macro-friends and convert them to hoppiness.

Pretty good IPA. Poured amber gold with some nice lacing and a medium head. It’s hot outside and this tasted nice for a hot day beer. The citrus and honey notes characterized the "warm weather beer" attitude. Flavor was of light hops with a medium bitter malty afterthought. I wouldn’t recommend this with spicy food.

yet another bonus in my trade with jah noth.the ipa poured a "clear" amber color with a small head that did leave nice lacing.the aroma and flavors was exaclty what i like in an ipa.ice tea,citurs,syrup,and pine all balanced this out nicely.this is damn good stuff.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Deep gold amber and clear, with a medium off white tan small bead sudsy head. Moderate carbonation. Fresh cedar, juniper/gin. pine resin, minty herb. Not much in the way of sweetness. Mostly just bitter. Sometimes a little edgy. It’s a good IPA.

oh6gdx (25141) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with beige foamy head. Fruitish hoppy aroma with some malty notes. Bitter hoppy flavour with dry finish. Standard IPA, but hides it’s 6,5% well.

blankboy (7172) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2005 Bottle shared with HogTownHarry at Bar Volo. Pours a hazy amber orange with a frothy, average size white head. Nice aroma of moderate to heavy hops, some citrus and a touch of malts. A heavy bitterness in the taste and to my delight, it’s quite hoppy. Doesn’t taste or feel like 6.5%. Very enjoyable.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 bBottle (12oz)/b iAt Volo, shared with blankboy/i. Pours bubbly, clear amber, average head, not much lacing. Light copper or orange. Strong aroma of citrus and several hops. Tastes ... hops!! Lemon rind and coriander. Starts hoppy and lingers more hoppy. No maltiness I can detect, light body - basically a medium to medium -strong hoppy IPA. Not my favourite kind of beer, but if you like the variety, pretty sure you’ll really like it. Please excuse the lower rating - I’m not a hop-head!
