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.

Many thanks goes out to Mustang3 and his brother Brian for sharing this beauty! Pours a cloudy and opaque yellow body. Head is thin, white, almost non-existant. But that’s ok because the aroma is real nice. Surgary up front, lots of hops here, apricots? Some malt as well. Taste is citrus, apricots, major hops, and sugary malts balance it out nicely. perhaps a little boozey, but no big deal. Finish is bitter, long lasting bite remains. A good example of the style! Thanks kevin and brian!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Bottled. Reddish amber. Sulphury grapefruit aroma. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Hops dominate. Harsh, very bitter finish. Well laquered, but the shining surface cannot hide the lack of malt depth.

Im pissed off because I just lost my first game of beirut to Kevbert. However drinking this beer is my only saving grace. Though Ive had this beer several times, Ive appreciated its rich aroma and slight bitter hoppy excelence until now. Great alluring aroma that tempts you drink even more. Pours amber with an aroma of bitter hoppimess. This is what an IPA should taste like! Besides the ton o hops, there are hints of grass, hay, wheat, rice, corn tomoatoes, and summer squash. Soooo good this beer!

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2005
bottle-thanks to Erway for bringing this one from NY. pours a nice amber/copper hue that looks similar to Hop Devil (which we made some comparisons too during this tasting). citric, toasty, green apples, peachy appricot aroma with a nice pineapple nostril kick to it. This beer is a little light on the palate, but the flavors are nice-toasty malts, peachy, resiny pineyness on the finish. Not a bad IPA that I could drink alot of.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Soft, cream-colored head and clear copper body. Nose is of hop candy with some toasty butterscotch malts shining underneath. Hoppy pine and cheese flavor with a neutral malt presence. Not outstanding but definitely an enjoyable IPA.

A nice smooth IPA. I am starting to enjoy IPA’s a lot more now. This was a very refreshing beer that had a nice fruity hoppy taste to it. Had a pleasant aroma as well. Overall this was a nicely brewed IPA.

This is a very good fruity tasting beer if that is what you are looking for. It was light with a sweet taste. Personally I would like something with more substance.

(12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with shadey, thanks Shane!) The unassuming label makes you think you’re just getting a basic IPA, but this is anything but! Big, balanced and exploding with flavor, this is an IPA with a robust and lightly toasty maltiness, lots of orange citrus and a moderately bitter hoppiness. Medium bodied, but with a wonderful, dense mouthfeel. Aromatic nose that is quite malty and balanced by a bright hoppiness. Dark amber color and fully cloudy in appearance, which masks the multitude of carbonation bubbles rising to the top. Creamy off-white head has solid retention and plenty of ringed lacing. An all-around excellent IPA.

Poured an amber color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of floral and piney hops and mildly fruity. Nice piney hop flavor that leaves a l very ong bitter finish. A little light on the malt but decent balance and nice to drink.
