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 lover’s delight!

Bottle. Pours a murky honey color with a small white head. Aroma is musty and sweet with mild floral and citrus tones. Decent hop bite with sweet citrus and carbonation on the higher end. The mustiness comes through in the flavor as well (reminds me of the Smuttynose IPA), which isn’t a good thing for me. Not a bad brew, but not great.

Copper pour with a small white head. Sharp pine hop aroma, not much else. The flavor is watery with piney hops. Body is thin, pretty disappointing for an IPA.

Frank (3026) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2011
This is a cloudy orange beer w/ a foamy white head. The nose is vegetative hops w/ a bit of pine. There is enough earthy hops to balance the sweetness but this still comes off as a bit flabby and wattery. There is isn’t enough real hop or malt character to satisfy and it’s not dry or light enough to be drinkable.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2010
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.

Light orange pour, white head. Decent hops and flavor, but nothing bout this stands out over all the other IPAs.

Haze orange pour. Citrus and hoppy atoms. A nice lingering bitterness. Overall not bad.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, deeper orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and foamy, beige head that dissipates quickly and sticks around for the session leaving a decent lacing. Aroma is alright. Good amount of medium sweet caramels with some floral and piney hops. Citrusy grapefruits, grain, and a touch of honey. Flavor is similar. Solid balance between caramels and hops. A touch of grainy toast and floral fruits as this finishes dry with a light, residual sweetness and a moderate, soapy, piney bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium, smooth body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Balanced and fairly straightforward.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Poured a clear, light copper color with a short white head and minimal lacing. The aroma was sharp pine hops against some malts and faint citrus. The flavor was mostly harsh pine, very little malt or sweetness to give it much balance. Thin body. Lots of carbonation. Harsh.

gururyan (635) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 24, 2010
From bottle, pours a deep amber, minimal head lingers with nice lacing. Has a deep flowery scent to it. Pretty dead on the tongue, not much to it. Surprised it is 6.8%, you wouldn’t think so.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Got this in the variety case sold at the local distributor. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange brown with nice medium layer of foamy manilla head. Aroma reminds me a lot of a florist shop with a tad bit of sweet fruits. Flavor has decent caramel malt base with bit abrasive pine hop on the back end. Overall, decent ipa.
