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.

Ernest (7791) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, resin), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately malty, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly balanced and docile for an American IPA...guess it’s because it’s East Coast style. A little more malt in the mouth would be very welcomed, but it’s fine as-is.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Extremely strange, yet pleasant hop and malt aroma, with hints of pine needles dripping with caramel. butter, apple and pear, human skin, as well as hints of corn husk, tea, apricots and pine. Orange copper color, with no head. Medium body. Tea-like hop character, with a variety of fruits, along with pine-like hops. Malt body is full of butter toffee and caramel flavors. Fairly nice and enjoyable beer!

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
No head. Golden body. Spicy, big hop aroma. Spiciness almost reminds me of curry. Solid spicy hoppiness, complimented with prominent bitterness in the taste. Medium body. Well made stuff.

Pours with a short head and a amber color. Mouthful tastes rather thin. Nice hop character, not an intro microbrew, but something a non-craft beer drinker should be able to handle, and a beer that experienced craft drinkers should enjoy.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 10, 2005
bottle from PineyPower. Thanks Dean! Pours a deep amber color with a small off white head. Nose is thick and malty, lots of caramel. Taste is thin at first, then a big blast of hops and caramel spew out, followed by a bitterness and a dryness upon swallowing. Some light dry notes of citrus remain in the mouth.

Quality IPA. Enjoyed at a bar in Syracuse. Not the best I’ve had, but nice hops and worth the taste.

Not too fruity, not too bitter, it’s a wonderful beer to drink without food.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle, clear ambery pour. Hoppy, citric rindy aroma, with some malt character - but the hops are the nose. More citric piney hop flavors predominantly, with caramel crystal malt backbone. The hop flavors themselves struck me as a little harsh, and notes of alcohol came through as well. Decent IPA.
