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.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2004 Inpenetrable rufous. Pasty, spackled off-white head. Attractive aroma of tangerine rind, glazed malts, and unsweetened chocolate. Light scents of wood, spicy anise, toast, and juicy hops. Clean and airy. Gently carbonated. Slightly creamy, as well. Explosive citrus flavors give way to caramel, sweet bread, and mineral flashes. The center is teeming with juicy hop components, which mask much of the tight spicy hops. Caramel-drenched tangerine climaxes in the finish alongside less assertive bready malts. Simplistic, yet delectable IPA, not unlike Smuttynose IPA, with its loose/fluffy body, boisterous citrus hop character and understated spiciness.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Rejuvenating hop resin and lip-smacking caramel malt join for exquisite balance...Intense grassy and coniferous bitterness and just dextrins carry forever...A bit more alcohol and you would get a wonderful imperial ipa...

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Chewy orange citrus "c" hop aroma. Orangey colour with thin white head that lasts and lasts. Big hop flavour with a nice supporting malt base, yeast flavours and fruity esters. Medium body, perhaps a touch light. Solid well brewed enjoyable American IPA. Probably not a beer I could drink all night but definitely an enjoyable drink. On tap at TapNY festival.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2004
TAP NY sample. Clear, medium-to-light amber. Clean, fresh fruity nose: apricots and cherries. Very orangy-citrusy in the mouth, nicely balanced; quite bitter without being overwhelming. Good caramel maltiness. Yummy.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2004
Tap NY, Draft. This one has one of the best hop profiles that you are going to find in an IPA. You can actually taste the hop flowers to the point where it feels like the entire flowers are in your mouth. Fun beer.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2004 Nice bold citrus burst refreshing hoppy hop art. Bit long dry grass citrus aftertaste, bit of mouth pucker, which is fashionable. Some tangerine and grapefruit. Very Drinkable balanced winner. Will be looking out for this brewery. Noteable very nice fruity citrus floral aroma.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2004
From 120z. bottle. Hoppy, slightly malty aroma. Not very strong scent. Slightly cloudy copper color. Small tan head lasted for entire beer, leaving decent lacing. Hoppy flavor, but not too bitter. Not floral. Also slightly sweet. Easy to drink. A pretty good IPA.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 11, 2004
pours a very nice deep amber. aroma is hoppy, perhaps favoring cascade. flavors are balanced between hops and malt, although the malt flavors are a little too caramel-y. still, very clean with good balance and drinkability.
