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.

BBB63 (5945) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Copper hues with large frothy white head and excellent lacing. The aroma hints of piney and aromatic hops, grapefruit, apple, lemon, toasted malts, and touch of caramel. The taste is bitter but not as aggressive I would have figured, good balance with malts. Bittering and slightly earthy on the finish. The mouthfeel is crisp and provides a bite upon the finish. Another impressive brew from the brewery. A must try if in upper New York.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Pours a deep copper with a thick puffy, well-lacnig off-white head. Richly hopped and sweet caramel malty aroma. Good hop presence throughout well balanced with a rich caramel toffee sweetness. Finishes crisp and bittersweet, almost candy-like, a very nice IPA. Thanks frielock!

Flavor/Palate : Full bodied. Woody , leafy hop character is well defined. Oily malt character works well with slight alcohol burn at finish.Black tea bitters at end spectrum. Bigger and bolder than numbers suggested. (6% of alcohol in Ontario). You might consider it quiet balanced for style. F-7+

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Pours a thin head. really nice pine, lemon and hops in the nose. Reddish gold body. This is better when it is on tap, but still good out of a bottle.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2003
(Draught) Thin, white head and a reddish body. Strong nose of grapefruit hops. Slightly bitter grapefruit taste with a dry, bitter hoppy finish. Excellent flavour but would only enjoy a sample size glass - a full pint is exhausting!
