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.

loco_gallego (42) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Ambré claire dorée, limpide. Mousse beige assez persistante. Carbonation moyenne. Goût houblonné frais, citrique. Fort goût de malt toasté rallongeant la fin de bouche. Fin de bouche sèche et grande amertume persistante. IPA atypique, de part sa clarté-limpidité, et de par son fort goût de malts.

Nitro at Kloby’s. Pours bright clear gold to smooth, creamy, thick white head. Tastes like smooth sweet creamy orange, nutty, light hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light caramel and orange creamy hops.

berkshirejohn (4505) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo. Golden amber with a loose ceam head; the aroma is surprisingly malty; in the mouth there’s an immediate hit of strongly aromatic bitter hops over a body of well toasted grains; the finish is long with a metallic, herbal, edge to it. An attractive East Coast style IPA.

UXO (191) - CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours a clear amber with little to no head, spotty lacing. Nose is relatively light - pine, citrus, some caramel malt and floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced caramel malt sweetness and resiny hop bitterness, perhaps a little West Coast style dankness. Mouth feel is surprisingly light given the low carbonation and high ABV, with a lingering bitter finish. Not bad at all. A decently robust IPA that would almost qualify as a West Coast DIPA, both in bittering and ABV. Speaking of ABV, there’s no overt signs of it in the flavour or the mouth feel - a little sneaky!

bigda83 (177) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft at friend’s house. Pours a clear amber with nice white head. Aroma is mainly floral and pine. Taste follows the nose with hints of citrus added in. This just felt super fresh and lively. We’ve had multiple glasses from this keg and each was outstanding. Nothing flashy, but very drinkable.

Golden yellow with white head. Aroma is grassy hint o pine hop flavor. Slightly sweet straw malt flavor. Oniony grassy hop flavors through the finish. Very nice.

One of the best IPA I have ever had! It has a great taste. At 7.2% abv you need to be careful.

umich03jm (1943) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a gigantic foamy head that fades incredibly slowly. Looks like whipped cream on tap of the beer. Hate that in any beer but especially an IPA. Aroma is sugary fruit, flowers, and pine. Tastes pretty sweet with some mild bitterness. Lots of flowers, odd fruitiness, pine, and sugar candy. Not a fan.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
Backlog. On tap at Green Lion Inn and bottled a couple of times. Your standard US-IPA, doesn’t really stand out to the rest.
