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.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Pours a clear golden amber with a small bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to a collar of foam leaving spotty lacing. The smell is earthy and subtle with pine hops and a solid malt backbone dominating. The taste mirrors the smell with a grassy hop kick up front before the malts take over in the middle. The pine hops kick in a little in the finish with only the slightest bitterness lingering between sips. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little sticky with modest carbonation. This is decent IPA and very drinkable with a subtle, less overpowering hop profile.

Bottle bought at the LCBO on Queen’s Quay in Toronto/Canada. Overall a good IPA. A bit too much malt and less hops aroma and flavor for my taste. More bitter hops and less exotic citrus hops. I definitely prefer the Headstock IPA by Nickelbrook. This one has an bit higher alcohol finish and less the hops or malt flavor.

monoroc (21) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Pours clear golden to amber color with a minimal head. Aroma ist mainly floral and pine, with a hint of citrus. Quite herby taste with a nice maltiness and a narrow, short lasting bitterness. A bit to herby for my taste, but otherwise ok.

Clear dark golden. Foamy white head. Smells of cleaning product and malt. Bready, hoppy, lots of aroma. Strong bitterness, lasting. Good.

The color was orangey amber with a foamy off white head. Its head slowly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles. Hops attack the nose with spruce pine, resin and light citrusy hop aromas. The flavor hits your tongue with bold piney and citrusy hop flavors. Malt flavor lies underneath and offers some balance with a mildly sweet and bready tone. The palate has a slightly oily smooth texture with a medium body and soft carbonation.

loco_gallego (18) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Ambré claire dorée, limpide. Mousse beige assez persistante. Carbonation moyenne. Goût houblonné frais, citrique. Fort goût de malt toasté rallongeant la fin de bouche. Fin de bouche sèche et grande amertume persistante. IPA atypique, de part sa clarté-limpidité, et de par son fort goût de malts.

Nitro at Kloby’s. Pours bright clear gold to smooth, creamy, thick white head. Tastes like smooth sweet creamy orange, nutty, light hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light caramel and orange creamy hops.
