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.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2004
Nice off-white head, unclear copper colored body. Bitter hoppy aroma with tones of fruit and caramel. Dry and bitter hoppy in the flavor with some nutty tones also. Well-balanced and flavorfull.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2004
This IPA pours with an amber-orange body topped by a thick off-white, lasting head with a good amount of lacing. The hoppy aroma is slightly sweet yet very bitter with nice grapefruit and pine notes, as well as, a touch of apricot. The flavor is bitter and hoppy with lots of pine, a little grapefruit and a touch of sweetness. Medium to full bodied, smooth and dry.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 A nice, burnished copper color. Sweet, floral, cirtusy aroma with definite tropical notes (apricots, melon). Good balance with a bubblegummy (not like a hefe, more like sweet chewing gum) overall flavor. Good depth of flavor, great acidity while retaining residual mouthfeel. Nice ale yeast fruit. Water must be hard there or was hardened. Bitterness is quinine-like (dry).

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 Well made IPA, thanks Eyedrinkale! Made with the C hops. Amber or honey colored, with a moderate white head. Aroma of lemon and grass. Flavor is full of bitterness with a well crafted malt under belly. Tangy finish.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2004
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.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2004
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.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - JUL 25, 2004
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 (1916) - 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.
