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.

AndyReynolds (918) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is grassy hops with some malts. Notes of pine, citrus, and a tiny bit of caramel stand out. Palate is light and refreshing. Taste is bitter, finishing dry. Pretty good for a regular ipa.

Pours a deep orangish copper. Floral and citrus aroma. Strong pine taste mellowed out with a solid malty backbone. Crisp and refreshing. Sessionable IPA.

John25 (698) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Orange, iced tea colored. Light citrus aroma with pine and bready malt. Basically just ok all around. Not bad, not great. Bitter at first but, then bland and boring. Balanced but, not much going on anyway. --- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tobyrando (5) - New York, USA - DEC 17, 2014 does not count
Pitch perfect IPA, strikes the right balance between west coast hop bombs and more malty east cost offerings. Core IPA from an outstanding brewery.
