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.

Dark amber color with a little, whit head. Smells very earthy and malty. The finish is strangely sour, which is somewhat unpleasant, but the flavor is well-rounded, just a little less hoppy than I like in an IPA.

Darker amber colour with a very small off-white head. The smell was very hoppy, and was probably severely dry-hopped. The taste was pretty good, a good balance of hops and malt but definately a hoppy aftertaste makes for a decent beer. Not a top rate IPA like Stone, but a decent one none-the-less. I had this on tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

dark petrified amber color..with a thick and frothy head..sweet and spicy hop accented aroma..flavors were a little grainy, fruity and had a touch of the bitters too..maybe some nectarine or apricot notes...very UNoffensive..with a little but not much bitterness and some chewiness to the mouthfeel.

Crit (3393) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2004
Cloudy amber,lasting beige head.Grapefruit hop nose.A hint of malt at start, then all grapefruit hops with a long finish. Decent body and good Belgian lace. Speaking of one who lives in the area of great northwest IPAs, this one isn't too bad at all. Thanks to Cap Flu for this.As it warms, the malt comes out

Many thanks goes out to Mustang3 and his brother Brian for sharing this beauty! Pours a cloudy and opaque yellow body. Head is thin, white, almost non-existant. But that’s ok because the aroma is real nice. Surgary up front, lots of hops here, apricots? Some malt as well. Taste is citrus, apricots, major hops, and sugary malts balance it out nicely. perhaps a little boozey, but no big deal. Finish is bitter, long lasting bite remains. A good example of the style! Thanks kevin and brian!

TAP: Fresh hop nose, pale amber color. Fruity malt - like grapefruit at times. Low bitter for an IPA, but just enough I guess. The bitter does build on itself through the glass. Refreshing dryness at the end of each sip. Could use more body, but overall decent.

rlgk (11442) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
Amber/ornage color, no head. Quite mild fruity, hoppy aroma. I had Victory Hop Devil before this one, and maybe thats why I found this IPA a little weak.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, resin), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately malty, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly balanced and docile for an American IPA...guess it’s because it’s East Coast style. A little more malt in the mouth would be very welcomed, but it’s fine as-is.

Hop bite is present immediately at the start, and balances out midway. Finishes rather dry for an IPA.
