One of my favorites. Hoppy, but balanced nicely. The alcohol content is just right at 7.3 %.

A great everyday beer. Hoppy, good malt balance, a good alcohol warmth, and very drinkable. Pine with hints of apple.

It poured a deep cloudy orange and gave the same color body. A beautiful half inch white head forms and lasts for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. Nice ringy foamy spider web lacing speckles the sides and clings to the pint glass. The smell has strong tones of pine, citrus and hops. There are some slight malts coming out as the beer warms. The taste takes the previously mentioned smells and gives more of a earthiness to it. I like it. The palate is about a medium and feels great on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent choice of an American IPA. I didn’t think I would like this one as much, but this is solid for me and its style.

Pours a thin head. really nice pine, lemon and hops in the nose. Reddish gold body. This is better when it is on tap, but still good out of a bottle.

This IPA pours with an amber-orange body topped by a thick off-white, lasting head with a good amount of lacing. The hoppy aroma is slightly sweet yet very bitter with nice grapefruit and pine notes, as well as, a touch of apricot. The flavor is bitter and hoppy with lots of pine, a little grapefruit and a touch of sweetness. Medium to full bodied, smooth and dry.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Wow, you taste an IPA like this and you really get it. There is alot of hops, AND you can still taste the sweet malted barley, very nice.

(Bottle, courtesy of Silphium) Pours a lightly cloudy orange body with an average-sized creamy beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, tofee, and citrus. Flavor of breadiness and juicy hops. A very well balanced and tasty IPA.

This is my first Southern Tier. I visited a Comfort Inn in Jamestown, NY and the mart across the street was selling it. I picked it up b/c I love IPAs. The bartender at the Comfort Inn told me about them. So, here goes my first taste of Southern Tier. Pours a nice orange. Little foam. Malty smell, bitter hop aroma. Piney bitter hop aroma. Here goes the taste. WOW, was not expecting this! That’s a good IPA! Piney, bitter, yet sweet and malty. Very delicious! A nice feel in your mouth, then the after taste is just wow! Very bitter! I like this, very good, well done Southern Tier.
