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.

hopscotch (8904) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2004
On tap at David Copperfield's, NYC... Cloudy, orange ale with a large, frothy, white head. Lots of citrus and pine with lesser notes of caramel in the nose. The flavor mirrors the aroma. Fruity and slightly less-than-moderately bitter. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, dry, citrusy finish. Very good beer!

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a deep gold color with a thick looking head. Good hoppy and peppery aroma. Taste was a decent balance of hops and malt with a nice peppery hop flavor throughout. Very good balance for an IPA.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2004
Rich copper beer with a thick creamy head and lacing. Strong citrus but not overpowering hop aroma. Good malt presence and body. Hop flavour from start to finish. A solid rendition.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2004
On draught at Kaya in Pittsburgh. Pours a dark amber/orange color with a medium thin off-white head. Really nice lacing throughout the glass. Floral hops and citrus in the nose. Medium body with a nice bitter character. Flavors of hops, apricot, citrus and caramel abound. The finish is crisp with a nice hops bite. This is a nicely balanced IPA that doesn’t just dump a bunch of hops in and call it a day.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Pours a dark amber color with a nice white head that falls fairly quickly. Aroma was sweet and malty with nice hop tones. Taste was very sweet and malty with a nice bitter end. Very smooth going down and nicely balanced.

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2004 Inpenetrable rufous. Pasty, spackled off-white head. Attractive aroma of tangerine rind, glazed malts, and unsweetened chocolate. Light scents of wood, spicy anise, toast, and juicy hops. Clean and airy. Gently carbonated. Slightly creamy, as well. Explosive citrus flavors give way to caramel, sweet bread, and mineral flashes. The center is teeming with juicy hop components, which mask much of the tight spicy hops. Caramel-drenched tangerine climaxes in the finish alongside less assertive bready malts. Simplistic, yet delectable IPA, not unlike Smuttynose IPA, with its loose/fluffy body, boisterous citrus hop character and understated spiciness.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Rejuvenating hop resin and lip-smacking caramel malt join for exquisite balance...Intense grassy and coniferous bitterness and just dextrins carry forever...A bit more alcohol and you would get a wonderful imperial ipa...

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Chewy orange citrus "c" hop aroma. Orangey colour with thin white head that lasts and lasts. Big hop flavour with a nice supporting malt base, yeast flavours and fruity esters. Medium body, perhaps a touch light. Solid well brewed enjoyable American IPA. Probably not a beer I could drink all night but definitely an enjoyable drink. On tap at TapNY festival.
