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.

Braastad (430) - - JUN 24, 2013
Golden, small head. Little suprisingly, aroma has mostly biscuit-malts. Little signs of fruity, piny notes also. Bready, biscuity malts also on flavor, medium bitterness.

EatMore73 (17) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a hazy amber orange with a frothy, average size white head. Aroma of moderate to heavy hops, some citrus and a touch of malts. Taste has a heavy bitterness about it, quite hoppy as well. Enjoyable.

Light amber color, light lacing, small head, good carbonation. Strong, good aroma. Quality brew, very bitter, quality hops--for the hopheads, goes well with salty foods.

yourilevesque (172) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Nice amber looking beer. This IPA shows almost no carbonation, either from the bottom of the glass and head. Aromas are piney, resineous, hoppy as well. Smell is fresh and you can predict this one has a nice body. According to the nose, the mouthfeel is complex: I get freshness, sweet notes, smooth palate, hops, all at the same time. Interresting! Unfortunately, the taste cuts right in the middle of the tongue. Almost no after-taste nor bak-palate feel. This beer is nice but make me feel like I have to get everything from it very quickly because it’s flavours evaporates in a second.

tom10101 (3577) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Clear golden/amber with a medium slowly diminishing white head that leaves good lacing.

Aroma: Strong pine/resin and orange with caramel, sweetness and cedar-like notes.

Taste: Strong resin, orange and caramel with medium to heavy sweetness, alcohol and harsh bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Oily and resinous mouthfeel. Harsh lingering bitter finish. It’s burning a bit too despite being only 7.3 % abv.

Overall: Like most beers I have tried from Southern Tier, this is completely unbalanced. This IPA is as harsh as some Triple IPA / hoppy Barley Wine. Minimal drinkability and enjoyability. Meh.

joejames (289) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle to shaker. Pours slightly hazy deep golden, two finger off white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of pine, tangerine and lemon zest. Taste is nicely balanced hoppy bitter, mildly sweet. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes mostly bitter and dries. Tasting notes of caramel, grapefruit, resin, pine, wheat and grass. I like this, a very well done IPA.

chinchill (2668) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2015
12 oz bottle served in an Anchor Steam pint glass [from Dec. 2012 notes). Pours an orange-amber; about as orange as any beer I’ve seen lately. The off-white head is modest in dize but has decent retention and leaves some lacing. Has a noticeable amount of suspended sediment than eventually settles to the bottom of the glass. Aroma: very fruity, with hints of earthy spiciness and caramel Taste: fruity flavor, mainly but not exclusively citrus, with plenty of earthy spiciness and a moderate, piney hop hit mid-sip that carries intop the finish and beyond. Malt flavor is present but in the background. The bitterness of the sizable hop load is clearly tempered by the mix of 4 types of malts. Medium-thin body with adequate carbonation. O: a very enjoyable and unusally complex Amer. IPA. Recommended!

radio_nowhere (1018) - Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle into tulip glass; amber-golden color, some sediment dust, with creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine/citrus hops, light floral note and bready malt sweetness. Taste adds notes of biscuit malt and woody spruce/tropical fruity hop bitterness. Medium-low body, low carbonation, dry, creamy with pine/fruity bitter finish. Solid east coast style IPA.
