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.

looks refreshingly good in the glass. moderately darkish and clear amber with a short foamy head. there certainly is a lot going on tastewise. all of the usual things that make an ipa nice and tasty. but for me nothing really stands out, except that there is a low malt profile. the word i keep thinking with this is moderate as in moderately...and then a bit better. and that is how i will speak to this rating. a nice safe ipa which is -moderately- refreshing. with a nice moderate carbonation and a pleasant m-----te bitterness. oh, and just a touch of quality allfruit sweetness.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours orange/amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, and pine. the flavor is sweet caramel malts, and load of hoppy bitterness.

sthlm (1250) - Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2008
[Bottle] Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is big on hops--but it is a very unique smell that is very difficult to place. I’ll call it grassy, but there is also I believe some fruit in there and definitely something else as well that I cannot place. Taste is slightly bitter, then the malt takes over before a somewhat bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with an average length finish. A very frustrating beer to try and describe, but as far as enjoyment it was fairly average.

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber orange, with very little head an very little carb. Aroma is the best thing about this beer, with pine and grapefuit dominating, with florals and grass mixed in. Taste is fairly malty for an IPA, with buiscutty caramel notes coming up on the longer lasting bitter, citrussy hops. Resiny mouthfeel but dramatically under carbonated and fairly thin. OK but nothing special.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Draft@the Empty Pint and assorted 12oz. bottles. Pours a pretty standard caramel malt slightly orangish amber with an averagwe white head.This has a hop aroma somewhat herbal but lighter than many American IPAs. Ther flavor is much the same, grainy bready slight caramel malt presence, not as hoppy as I would like. This is a solid beer, but not really a top notch IPA in my opinion. I would consider it a great APA, but that is just semantics I guess. I would like to see Southern Tier brew a tweener IPA between this and Unearthly.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with light off white head. Aroma is light citrus and malt with aromas of sugar cookie dough. Taste is mild citrus, caramel and again, sweet bread or sugar cookie malt. Moderate carbonation and easy finish. A good IPA.

A good ipa. Golden color with a beige head. Nice carbonation. Smell is piney and floral. Taste is smooth and hoppy. Finish is a little too biting on the tongue.
