COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA stands for India Pale Ale and ours is an American version of the classic style. IPAís 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.

Not bad, but a little too sweet and not hoppy enough for my IPA taste. This would be an easy drinking session IPA.

Golden with a thin head. Faint grassy aroma. Grassy taste with a dry finish. Decent IPA.

Good hoppy/sweet aroma. Light colored with a huge white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Tastes great. Just enough hop bitterness, and that comes through at the very end of each taste. The palate is thick for the style - not watery, very well done

Bricks (917) - Delaware, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Average appearance.. very bubbly, not much head to speak of. Aroma is very nice.. clean, floral, sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is clean, citrus floral hops.. a hint of sweet malt. Palate is above average for an IPA. Good quality IPA.

Tranquillity (1709) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2016
Bottled. Decent IPA. Pale body, big white head. The aroma is fruity, the taste has some sourness, rhubarb and raspberry.

ByTheirLimpin (248) - New York, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Poured from the bottle. Hazy orange amber. Mixed bubble head holds up a bit. Nose is citrus piney hop. Sticky lipped first taste. Honey grapefruit pine cone...even a little tart sap...grows on you.

Turboninja (433) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2016
Bottle@home, from Constantinoís, Cleveland, USA. Medium bit sweet parfymic/artificial aroma of overaged mango. Golden color with medium/small white head and clear liquid. Medium slightly sweetínísour taste of overaged mango and malts, some citrus. Unbalanced. Medium taste spectrum and long hoppy bitter aftertaste. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall, fresh with basic, even bit organic American nuances. Frighteningly good for drinking, but not so good for tasting.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Mildly hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and one finger of interrupted lacing is left. 3.5 S: Piney, floral, and citrusy hops. Candied oranges, papaya, and mango. A touch of breadiness and caramel malt sweetness. Pleasant, but fairly mellow compared to more recent releases. 3.75 T: Like the nose, this isnít an in your face hop bomb. Rather, itís just a finely crafted IPA of yesteryear. Again a big floral hit with piney undertones. Citrus fruits mentioned above. Bready yeastiness, caramel malts with a pleasant toastiness. Very nice. 3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Itís not quite chewy, but the yeastiness adds something to the body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and super smooth. 3.75 D: Good beer, easy to drink. I will always remember this fondly as I believe my first purchase of a case of craft beer was the ST mixed case. ★ 949 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 10, 2015

Good aroma but mild. Taste is very interesting. You can tell it has been brewed with several makes. Hop flavor comes through. Grassy taste but in a good way. Little boozy. Good solid ipa

Sirmixsomewhat (173) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Iím not particularly compelled to go back and try it again, but my experience was that it was very bitter and didnít have much to it outside of its hop profile, which was strong for the sake of being strong.
