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.

Southern Tier IPA is a hazy sienna ale with a small white head with oily bubbles. It leaves good lacing. The aroma is very fresh. It smells like wort being boiled. It’s mostly citrusy centennial hops with sweet caramel underneath. Medium-full bodied and velvety smooth, it leaves the tongue smooth and cleanly. It has a nice piney flavor. It is citrusy and resiny, grassy and a little sweet. The bitterness is strong and in balance with everything else. The aftertaste is faint and of citrus peel and evergreen trees. This is a great example of an American IPA.

What in the hell? This is fucking amazing! Who in the hell do these folk think they are? Obviously i have never had to many good IPA’s, but this is fucking incredible! It poured out a golden orange, light yellow head. Smellt of grass, sweet bread dough, marijuana, and tasted just the same! The balance was perfect, it went down so well. Cheers to a well crafted beer!

Finally Southern Tier hits Georgia.
Tap @ TacoMac, Alpharetta. Dark orange color, White head. Sticky, sticky. Aroma of huge citrus hops. Nice caramels, and sticky. Flavor is a heavy bodied, sweet and sticky malt. Toasted caramels. All hidden beneath a nicely hopped bitterness. Lots of grapefruit, pine, and oily hops. A very huge IPA. Absolutely lovely. Drinker’s beware: Do not have two of these on a completely empty stomach. It hit me hard. Very yummy, 40oz of yummy. and heavy. YUM, this is my new favorite IPA.

Bottle 330ml. Exceptional IPA. Aromas of grass, caramel, honey, and nuts. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a very long finish. Palate is almost creamy, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy white head.

Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Pours thick and great head that lasts forever. Nose is pure hop and a bit of sweetness. Smooth as butter with the nitro and 7.3% to boot. Near perfect blend of hop bitterness and citrus sweetness. Nitro does well here. ---Rated via my mouth

This is my current favorite IPA. A wonderful citrus/pine aroma greets you before the hop attack. Not overly bitter, but it lets you know it’s an IPA in no uncertain terms. Smooth finish and pairs well with spicy foods.
