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.

Nice amber color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Light malt aroma with a decent grapefruit and hop presence and maybe a bit of pine as well.Kind of a thin feel but a decent hop taste and some grapefruit notes along with a mild semi biiter sweet taste coming through.very decent brew and well worth having a few more for later just due to the ease of drinkability.Thanks go to Shadey for sending another fine brew my way.

Brewtopia’04. Dark IPA. Aromas of pit fruits, some pine...maybe I’m corrupted by FFF? Grapefruit and orange flavors, nice and hoppy. There might be some malt subtlty at the finish, but it’s unclear and abruptly hoppy. OK IPA.

Sweet hoppy taste with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Deep amber coloration, a very nice hoppy beer, helped me clear up a cold! Thanks to EyeDrinkAle!

shadey (1896) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 The pour was a golden orange with a thick fluffy white head. No lacing. The aroma was all hops. The flavor was hops like an IPA should be. I haven’t had a bad beer yet from Southern Tier. RERATE: Bright color orange with a creamy thin white head. Nicely balanced aroma that has a great malt and hops mix. Nicely balanced all around. 7/4/8/4/17 RERATE: Clear amber orange with a thin white head. Very nice floral hop aroma. Big hop flavor with plenty of floral character. Very clean finish, not resiny. Crisp and refreshing.

Good IPA. Light amber/orange appearance with a creamy white head. Aroma wasn’t too bold. Fruity, hops. Flavor was very akward at first. Tasted a lot like pine needles. Towards the end great hops, citrus flavor. Sorta changed half way through. Recommend to others.

On tap at Brewtopia ’04. Poured a clear orange yellow with a very strong grapefruit aroma. Taste was a very crisp clear medium grapefruit, with just the right amount of hoppiness. A nicely strong well done IPA.

Clear amber color with a large off white head. Nice, well balanced, malt/hop aroma. Well balanced and smooth with a nice bitter finish. Needs just a touch more body, but this is a well done IPA.

Bottle: I was quite surprised at how good this beer was. Although I shouldn’t be, as I’ve had their porter on tap and it was also great. Deep golden amber color with a large white head that lasts. Aroma has the citrus and pine notes I expected, along with some caramel and pepper. Tastes very fresh and crisp almost like off the tap, this 6 pack must be new. Starts off with a nice bitter hop bite (pine, citrus, earth), but there’s excellent balance in this beer with peppery spice and malt flavors (caramel, light fruit). Has a full, creamy body and a great bitter finish. I agree with Oakes that this brewery is going places.
