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.

Bottled. Nice clear cooper. Has a light body which is nice. However I feel the hops bitter taste is quite disappointing. Not a bold taste.

MaltOne (288) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Pours orange tinged light amber, slightly hazy. Aroma has slightly resny with notable malt. Flavor starts resiny with a big malt finish. Has a pleasing deep dank character. The hops / malt, bitter / sweet, are nicely balanced, though the malt finish is unusually strong for an IPA, more like a 2X IPA. This is really good.

CharmCityCrab (221) - Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma is a *little* muted, but still has enough of that fresh foresty smell to it. Taste is bitter and dry, mouth feel a bit like hard liquor with just a little bit of industrial cleaner. Texture also has some pine needles with syrup (None of the syrup in the taste, though). Boozy. This does not go down easy. Honestly, I love IPAs, and I love double IPAs when I get a chance to get them (Canít afford the doubles, generally), so itís not just that this is amped up a little that bothers me- and there are plenty of hops in there, so itís not suffering from the number one problem with less than perfect IPAs- hop deficiency. Something about the taste profile is just a little weird. Maybe the lack of a bottled on or sell by date is part of the reason why- but if you donít put a date on the bottle, Iím rating what I taste. The "itís out of code" excuse only works if I can verify that it is in fact out of code, otherwise, Iím rating what I might wind up with the next time since I have no way of telling whatís what. I usually wonít buy anything thatís not dated in some way, but this was a real good sale and I needed to save money and wanted the tick. Itís also possible that one of their four hop varieties (Which four are unspecified on the bottle) is sort of a rogue hop that I donít care for. But itís still not a bad beer. Just an average one. Almost burns the lips like a rough wind.

tfontana (303) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover, NH. Aroma is bread and yeast (a little bit like wert), slight fruity hops. Appearance is hazy orange yellow with greenish tinge. Trace sparkle and small white head that dissipates quickly, and mild lacing. Taste is combination of sweet, bitter and sour, (sort of a 50-25-25% split) much like the aroma. Palate is medium bodied with average texture and average carbonation (slight zing to tip and sides of the tongue). Finish is wet and fairly long with mild bitterness. Overall, a nice combination of aromas and tastes but suffers a little by bordering on the unfinished side. Above average appearance and palate but not without faults.
