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.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 Bottle. Golden orange colour. Fruity and malty aroma. The taste is sweet, biscuity and fruity at first. Then more bitter. Notes of citrus, caramel, grass, apricot. Bitter finish. A bit one-dimensional on the hop front. Maybe better more fresh?

A little weak as an IPA, but nonetheless with a decently fruity nose, and with a good amount of bitterness. A solid brew, easy to drink.

It is orange-golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit, spruce and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, citrus/oranges, other fruits, light soap and dust and the finish has some grapefruit and it’s dry and bitter. Somehow this is not what I expected from this brewer, perhaps I should re-rate it some day, since it’s not as fruity/refreshing as I hoped for...

StefanSD (2070) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 21, 2009
12 oz bottle from secret santa. Thanks rudy. Pours a cloudy copper gold with a very small white head. Aroma is somewhat mild with pine, mild citrus and something perfumy floral. The taste is caramel malty with mild piney hops. The mouthfeel was light and crisp. The finish was short and dry.Overall: Not a bad little IPA, might have been cutting edge ten years ago, but now its not up to current craft standards.

I enjoyed this fine beverage in a 20 oz oversized pint glass at the blue tusk in syracuse, NY. It had a very subtle and nicely balanced hop vibe to it. It kind of had an english ale smoothness to it. It was a nice beer to finish the evening with. Very chill floral aroma as well.

On tap at Kinsale Irish Pub, Boston MA, 29 October 2009. Orange colour. Clear. Thin white head. Quite moist, slightly spicy hop aroma. A sweet edge presages the flavour which is ever so sweet and very leafy. There is plenty of hop presence but it is not at all bitter and fails to produce much grip. This leaves the beer feeling a bit flabby (not to mention sickly sweet) on the palate. The bitterness only appears in the aftertaste. Serviceable but not one of Southern Tier’s better offerings on this showing - maybe not at its freshest.

This IPA poured a slightly cloudy dark orange colour with a quick living head. To the nose there are scents of spruce, citrus, and bread. first sip was smooth with s thick mouthfeel. Flavours of hopps and citrus, most prodominant. Finish is bitter with hopp flavour lingering.

Bottle. Pours a copper/ orange colour with a white frothy head. The aroma is mostly piney hops, but i also get some citrus and floral hoppy notes and some caramel and malts. Falvour is dominated by the piney hops, but it also has a fairly strong malty backbone. I also get notes of citrus and green apple and a some what slight alcoholic taste. The beer has a medium body with a nice crisp mouthfeel. A good IPA that is worth checking out, but deffinetly not the best one out there.

arminjewell (5994) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pours golden with white head, aroma is some nice floral and grassy hops. Taste is grassy, floral, bit of pine, leading into a nice sweet bread that finishes a bit bitter. Solid IPA.

Bottle pours a light orane beer with a thin off white head. Scent is sweet with caramel and hops. Taste is lemony citrus with a earthy dry aftertaste. Kinda disappointed....
