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.

Delicious IPA. Hoppy aroma, balanced taste. You can’t do much better on a standard run of the mill IPA.

Pours out a slightly hazy light honey color. Spicy-citrus aromas. Flavor is of biscuit malts and spice. Some bitter pine, some citrus. A well balanced. Clean drinking IPA. Lingering bready-bitter finish.

355 ml bottle from the LCBO. Bottled 3.5 months ago (04/07/14). Pours a clear golden orange with thin soapy white head. Smells weak, peppery hops, some honey, caramel malt. Tastes malty, biscuit, toasted malt, with some herbal and fruitiness to it. Mild bitterness. Slight alcohol burn on this. Strikes me as more of a boozy English style IPA. I was expecting West Coast style. Not a bad beer, but not too impressive.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy, cloudy, amber to the orange. Bit of pine aroma, taste’s of pine needles redolent of the adirondaks and summer evenings. Smooth drinking, hide’s the alcohol well, all around competent, not special.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
A good full bodied beer but drinks more to a thinner side, maybe due to warm up. This is a very good tasting beer that also hides it’s alcohol warming impact very nicely. When I take a big gulp of this golden brew I get a well balanced taste of malts and hops. THe hops are citrusy and floral, the malts are rich and support the hops greatly. Interesting that not alot of hops aroma is present, but there is agood bit of malt sweetness. Completely opposite to the taste. Some IPA’s you can smell the hops a mile away. Southern Tier IPA pours a bit hazy. A nice orange/amber color. Desent frothy white head, fading. A very good IPA that isn’t over powering. That means drinkability

angel77 (791) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en octubre de 2012. Ipa con un cuerpo de 7.3 vol, fácil de beber aunque con algunos toques toscos y lúpulos herbáceos, algo cítricos que se podían suavizar un poco mas. Podía estar mejor.

Bottle bought at the LCBO on Queen’s Quay in Toronto/Canada. Overall a good IPA. A bit too much malt and less hops aroma and flavor for my taste. More bitter hops and less exotic citrus hops. I definitely prefer the Headstock IPA by Nickelbrook. This one has an bit higher alcohol finish and less the hops or malt flavor.
