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.

TAP: Fresh hop nose, pale amber color. Fruity malt - like grapefruit at times. Low bitter for an IPA, but just enough I guess. The bitter does build on itself through the glass. Refreshing dryness at the end of each sip. Could use more body, but overall decent.

sloth (2832) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Small white head short lived but with a nice stringy, scattered laceing. Clear amber/copper hued brew. Big, flowery hop nose, citrusy and grainy. Medium body, clean on the palate. Medium sweet malts, light caramel notes, lightly toasty with a nice hop balance, piney, citrusy and fruity. Finish is medium dry, lightly citrusy. Alcohol content is deceiving, ya would,nt know it! A nice enough IPA.

A fine IPA, this has a copper color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. A nice hoppy flavor with a grassy, earthy hint as well as a touch of orange.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Ahhh, the sweet smell of hops. This is a standout example of IPA quality. The color is a slightly hazy amber and a very thin head. The flavor is nice, initially buttery, then hitting you with the hop bitterness we all know and [should] love. I wish I could get this brewery in Ohio. Regardless, damn good stuff.

Many thanks goes out to Mustang3 and his brother Brian for sharing this beauty! Pours a cloudy and opaque yellow body. Head is thin, white, almost non-existant. But that’s ok because the aroma is real nice. Surgary up front, lots of hops here, apricots? Some malt as well. Taste is citrus, apricots, major hops, and sugary malts balance it out nicely. perhaps a little boozey, but no big deal. Finish is bitter, long lasting bite remains. A good example of the style! Thanks kevin and brian!

omhper (23898) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Bottled. Reddish amber. Sulphury grapefruit aroma. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Hops dominate. Harsh, very bitter finish. Well laquered, but the shining surface cannot hide the lack of malt depth.

Im pissed off because I just lost my first game of beirut to Kevbert. However drinking this beer is my only saving grace. Though Ive had this beer several times, Ive appreciated its rich aroma and slight bitter hoppy excelence until now. Great alluring aroma that tempts you drink even more. Pours amber with an aroma of bitter hoppimess. This is what an IPA should taste like! Besides the ton o hops, there are hints of grass, hay, wheat, rice, corn tomoatoes, and summer squash. Soooo good this beer!

bottle-thanks to Erway for bringing this one from NY. pours a nice amber/copper hue that looks similar to Hop Devil (which we made some comparisons too during this tasting). citric, toasty, green apples, peachy appricot aroma with a nice pineapple nostril kick to it. This beer is a little light on the palate, but the flavors are nice-toasty malts, peachy, resiny pineyness on the finish. Not a bad IPA that I could drink alot of.
