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

12 oz bottle from Shadey. Smells is of piney hops. Pours a nice golden color. Taste is pretty standard, with a nice hop profile. Balance is very good, and the finish is smooth. Nice IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Nice hoppy aoma, but a little faint. Taste is pinier and less sweet than I might have liked, but an altogether decent product at $2/12oz

Tremendous IPA. Had this in the woods out of the variety pack and was impressed with all of the ST beers, not the least of which was this one.

12oz bottle poured orange in color with a small off white head. The aroma was sweet with caramel and citrus hops. Taste was hoppy with alot of caramel malt and a lingering hop finish. Full of hops and malts with a nice balance.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle poured into a plastic cup while camping near the southern tier of New York. Sweet smell and decent body. Good flavor that is very hoppy but not as well balanced as I expected. Good beer.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Orange-Amber pour. Thin white head with minimal lace. Not as much hop presence as I would like like in an IPA. Nice mouth feel with lingering bitter finish.

Braudog (6494) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Poured a dark copper with the barest fizzle of a head. Very perfumey, soapy aroma ... and it delivers in the first swallow, delivering almost a detergent-like flourish. The more you drink, it turns into more of a flower-hoppiness.
