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.

This is my current favorite IPA. A wonderful citrus/pine aroma greets you before the hop attack. Not overly bitter, but it lets you know it’s an IPA in no uncertain terms. Smooth finish and pairs well with spicy foods.

UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Very crisp. A nice sharp bitterness up front mixed in with some resin and pine. Nothing that really stands out too much, a good balanced IPA.

MarkSachon (553) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12 oz bottle at Mrs. Doyle’s 90th birthday party. Pretty much as good or bad as any of the other IPA’s. There’s a creaminess here that is unique to Southern Tier products. Good to very good overall.

Bottled. Slightly hazy orange, thinnish creamy head. Floral/polleny and slightly resiny nose, some mango and peaches. Caramelly sweet start with dryish biscuity towards the finish. Bitterness level is medium, character slightly resiny. Medium body, slightly oily and a bit low in carbonation.
