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.

rudolf (2341) - 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 (4516) - 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!

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Pours slightly cloudy amber, medium sized tan head mostly lasts, leaves sheets of lacing. Aroma is clean and fresh hoppiness, lots of citrus and pine, backed with a decent level of caramel malts. Flavor starts with a bready and sweet caramel maltiness, ends with a solid and tasty hop bitterness. Medium body, extremely well balanced, goes down very easy.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Very pleasant copper body topped by a nearly white head. Not much in the way of head retention, but some small islands of foam linger. Very nice floral-citrus hop aroma. The taste is also nice, with decent malt and a balanced hop profile. Slight buttery aftertaste is laced with hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is good, perhaps lacking just a bit of body compared to the top notch IPA's. Drinkability is good. A solid IPA.

EddieG (169) - Palos Heights, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2003
I was most impressed with my first Southern Tier which is not unexpected given the experience of the brewers. This beer is remarkably crisp and refershing. It almost seams to be a superior water that gives the beer its refreshing quality. Defeinately in teh Ebglish style of IPA. A deep amber color with a a crisp malt and hop character. The beer lingers nicely on the tongue and leaves a great flavor for long after the drink. Really good!!!

Pours well into a glass. It has a nice deep orange/brown color. Smell is of grapefruit. Taste is filled with hops but enough malt to balance. Overall an excellent IPA.
