COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stegmaier IPA is an American India Pale Ale with an Attitude! Brewed with American malts and aggressively hopped with three varieties of American hops, Centennial, Cascade, and Nugget. Stegmaier IPA has an assertive hop presence and a strong malt backbone to support the quarter ton of hops used in the brew. Stegmaier IPA is a hop loverís delight!

12 oz. Bottle. A nice copper brown color, with a hoppy taste that does not bite. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation.

DrSilverworm (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2011
12oz bottle from the $10 sampler-12. Clear orange color, thin white head. Overly fruity tasting and somewhat syrupy. Tastes appropriately cheap. A boring IPA, possibly the worst of this style (out of ~20) that Iíve tried yet.

Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edge. Aroma was slight pine but mainly sweet grains. Flavor also had a slight bitter pine note but sweet bread and grains were the dominate notes for this beer. Thanks for bringing back the 12 pk from Penn. JB

Well, I wasnít expecting much hops in this steg IPA; just some mild imitation of an IPA. But I was wrong, this stuff is on style and better in style than many microbrew IPA Iíve had, very surprized! Big hoppy pine or spruce aroma. Taste is big bitter hops blast. Yes, a very terribly on style IPA. Barely any co2. Oily soapy mouth coating nastiness. Roto-till my palte, will yah? Waytoo much for this lager loven tongue, WEW! Big bitter linger, borders on double IPA territory!

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2012 Hoppy aroma with a floral leaning. Slightly bitter, hops filled flavor, a bit of sweetness, somewhat floral. Hints of lemon peel. Not a terrible IPA, but not a standout, just a bit undistinguished.

MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Well... this one poured a light golden color with little head and aromas of grain dust and apple juice with a little caramel/toffee. Flavor is sweet junk... apples and silo dust with no hops apart from a faint herbal presence that comes and goes weakly as it pleases. Tastes like a mediocre amber ale with a little herbal hops.

Light pleasant lemony nose with a bit of spiciness. Beautiful looking hazy amber/light amber with nice head and retention. Malty palate starts a bit light on hops, has caramel, then a bit of hoppiness towards the end. More how I like my APAís then IPAís, but good.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration.

I had to try this $20 IPA . I must say that overall it is not bad. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Not much aroma. The sweetness is too much for an ipa, overpowering the hops which are detectable but not as strong as an ipa should be. Tone down the sweetness and bump up the hops a tad and this would be a good ipa, canít complain for the price though. Thereís worse ipaís out there.

This beer was pretty decent. Better than I expected. Another average brew from a below average brewer.
