COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA stands for India Pale Ale and ours is an American version of the classic style. IPAís 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.

Nitro version on tap at Proof Brewing Co. 1/9/14. Welllll, since it is a nitro, I have to wait a solid 5 minutes just for the cup of foam to finish settling and reveal a full beer.... still waiting..... FINALLY!!! A: Deep golden orange, with a thick cream head that smothers the rim of the cup. S: Floral, citrus, herbs, fish, grass, typical IPA smell. T: Licked the foam, because I could, and it provided a thick film of metal flavor. Instant taste of sweet vanilla, metal -coin like- bitterness, wheat, continues to become more dry and bitter. Not overwhelming but no distinct flavor as well. Could be altered by the fact that I just ate Chipotle peanuts (oops). O: Iíve had better IPAs that contain a more definite flavor but this is still easy to drink. The nitro aspect makes it smoother than what an average IPA would offer.

Reimer96 (1449) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a small frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, spruce tips and sweet caramel malts. Taste is pine, citrus hops, grapefruit and spruce. Complex flavor with a smooth bitterness that?s lightly astringent on the finish.

andrewturba (1155) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a hazy copper with a small white head and a touch of lace. Aroma is pine, resin, tropical fruits, citrus, lightly spicy and some malty notes. Flavour is resin, citrus, pine, medium to high sharp bitterness thatís kinda harsh but not bad and doesnít linger too much, mild alcohol, kinda grainy, and a nice dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Good hoppy/sweet aroma. Light colored with a huge white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Tastes great. Just enough hop bitterness, and that comes through at the very end of each taste. The palate is thick for the style - not watery, very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (377) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Very body dominated beer with bitterness and sweetness in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced and different from the hop dominated IPAs.

SinH4 (672) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Beautiful orange appearance with big white head. Aroma, first impression: So American. Pines and malt. Taste is sweet and juicy, more of the nice residual sweetness and bitterness. A nice benchmark East Coast IPA, not much space for critique here. But then again itís not too distinct.

dhatton (133) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Pours a deep orangish copper. Floral and citrus aroma. Strong pine taste mellowed out with a solid malty backbone. Crisp and refreshing. Sessionable IPA.

John25 (939) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Orange, iced tea colored. Light citrus aroma with pine and bready malt. Basically just ok all around. Not bad, not great. Bitter at first but, then bland and boring. Balanced but, not much going on anyway. --- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Citrus hops, malt, sour aroma. Citrus bitterness, biscuity, malt flavor. Good IPA

Pitch perfect IPA, strikes the right balance between west coast hop bombs and more malty east cost offerings. Core IPA from an outstanding brewery.
