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.

WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Clear orangy color, white head. Hoppy nose with citrus notes. Medium body with strong hops flavor. Nice and bitter, a little grapefruity, nicely balanced by a little malt, but not much. The palate is the real pleaser, with lingering dry bitterness. At my original first tasting, I was pretty unimpressed, but now I’m on my last bottle, and it’s grown on me. Quite a tasty IPA, and light enough to enjoy several bottles of.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Iced tea brown, a little bit light ruby. Slightly hazy. Moderate carbonation. Slightly off white head. Quickly diminishing. Vinous, sweet, marginally metallic aroma. The flavor and body aren’t nearly as bitter as the nose would suggest, which is somewhat dissapointing. Malt isn’t very chewy. Overall, a well-crafted IPA.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
Draught at Mugs Ale House, New York. Dark amber colour. Deep, zesty hop nose with a wood-dry flavour. Mandarin notes. Rich malty. Nice, not overpowering hop profile ending on a dry note. Medium-full bodied. Yummy!

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Rich copper coulour, with foamy white head. Subtle hop aroma for ipa. taste is hops and malts to offset the bitternes. Quite refreshing, would be a good session beer if readily avail to me.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2005
Light amber with a modest fluffy head. Aroma is very powerful with fresh american hops. Citrus and grapefruit with hints of pine. Flavor has a good malt backbone and is very clean with the hop balance. Good strong bitter finish.

jtw (1146) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2005
variety pack bottle. pretty good IPA, very bitter candyish notes in the aroma, and plenty of malt to balance the tons of hops that they tossed in there. medium to full body, very refreshing.

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 (2791) - Ocean County, 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.
