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.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12 oz. bottle pours a golden honey color with frothy head. Poor retention, but abundant lacing. Aroma is of pine resin, moss and crackers. Front palate is bitter and malty with a middle of herbs and grass and a hoppy finish with yeast overtones and a burnt-popcorn aftertaste. A crisp fall accompaniment for a warm spinach salad with bacon, bleu cheese and a homemade honey mustard dressing.

BierMeHoos (333) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
A gift from a neighbor, poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is orange-amber with a lingering cream colored head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, and light citrus. Palate is light. Taste is fruitiness, grass, and hops. Found it to be pretty good, but not over powering even at 7.3% ABV.

N3lson1 (482) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Drank from a twelve ounce bottle at the Vault in Scranton! Smells of hopiness and a nice roastiness. Has a nice carbonation feel on the tounge but too hop forward to taste much else.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Probably best east coast IPA around. Perfect to style, big hops but not xxipa. Piny citrus and floral hop balance. Orange color not big head as enough hop aroma shot through. Fresh hop flavor not killer bitter nice lingering hop finish.
