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.

Slightly malty aromas offset the initial citrus hops. Nice coppery body with a creamy medium mouthfeel. Not too bitter - in fact perhaps could be a touch hoppier and more bitter. Nice though.

copper-amberish in color witha meium sized off-white head. Good citrus hop aroma, nicel balanced taste of grapefruit like hops and sweet malt. not as hoppy as i like an IPA, but nonetheless a very solid one.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Clear reddish-orange body, nice creamy off-white head with orange hints. Very nice cascadey hop aroma, with some peppery citrus peel edge. First flavor picked up is a bitter and bright / juicy orange hop thing, with just enough sweet malt to keep it balanced. Very good overall... very smooth hop presence reminiscent of 3F Alpha King.

Reid (2178) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Nice looking beer to look at, again its adarker amber than i am used to in an IPA( is this an eastcoast vs west coast thing?),nice sized off white head, leaves nice lace down the glass. Nice smooth malty/hoppy aroma, delightful. This is pretty well balanced, the malts do get a chance to shine in the first half of the mouthful, then a resinous bitter,hoppiness takes over and subsides somewhat at the end. Nice on the palte, quite smooth. Very nice drinkable IPA, would have again easily. Thanks to Jah Noth for this beer!

pivo (2647) - GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005
TAP: Fresh hop nose, pale amber color. Fruity malt - like grapefruit at times. Low bitter for an IPA, but just enough I guess. The bitter does build on itself through the glass. Refreshing dryness at the end of each sip. Could use more body, but overall decent.

sloth (2717) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Small white head short lived but with a nice stringy, scattered laceing. Clear amber/copper hued brew. Big, flowery hop nose, citrusy and grainy. Medium body, clean on the palate. Medium sweet malts, light caramel notes, lightly toasty with a nice hop balance, piney, citrusy and fruity. Finish is medium dry, lightly citrusy. Alcohol content is deceiving, ya would,nt know it! A nice enough IPA.

A fine IPA, this has a copper color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. A nice hoppy flavor with a grassy, earthy hint as well as a touch of orange.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Ahhh, the sweet smell of hops. This is a standout example of IPA quality. The color is a slightly hazy amber and a very thin head. The flavor is nice, initially buttery, then hitting you with the hop bitterness we all know and [should] love. I wish I could get this brewery in Ohio. Regardless, damn good stuff.
