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.

JohnC (3007) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Clear orange color, very mild carbonation (poured nearly flat), this IPA has a moderately hoppy flavor. This is a good session drinking beer, not an over the top IPA

rlgk (18834) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
Amber/ornage color, no head. Quite mild fruity, hoppy aroma. I had Victory Hop Devil before this one, and maybe thats why I found this IPA a little weak.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a red amber color with a quickly dissapating white fizzy head. Aroma is hoppy and floral, with a good balance of sweet malts as well. Flavor is dominated by hops with a pretty dry aftertaste. Overall, a pretty decent IPA.

WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Clear orangy color, white head. Hoppy nose with citrus notes. Medium body with strong hops flavor. Nice and bitter, a little grapefruity, nicely balanced by a little malt, but not much. The palate is the real pleaser, with lingering dry bitterness. At my original first tasting, I was pretty unimpressed, but now Im on my last bottle, and its grown on me. Quite a tasty IPA, and light enough to enjoy several bottles of.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Iced tea brown, a little bit light ruby. Slightly hazy. Moderate carbonation. Slightly off white head. Quickly diminishing. Vinous, sweet, marginally metallic aroma. The flavor and body arent nearly as bitter as the nose would suggest, which is somewhat dissapointing. Malt isnt very chewy. Overall, a well-crafted IPA.

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
Draught at Mugs Ale House, New York. Dark amber colour. Deep, zesty hop nose with a wood-dry flavour. Mandarin notes. Rich malty. Nice, not overpowering hop profile ending on a dry note. Medium-full bodied. Yummy!

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Rich copper coulour, with foamy white head. Subtle hop aroma for ipa. taste is hops and malts to offset the bitternes. Quite refreshing, would be a good session beer if readily avail to me.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2005
Light amber with a modest fluffy head. Aroma is very powerful with fresh american hops. Citrus and grapefruit with hints of pine. Flavor has a good malt backbone and is very clean with the hop balance. Good strong bitter finish.
