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.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Bottle. Full hoppy aroma and flavors. Very smooth, unlike many of the current IPAs, which are too punchy, too bitter, or too citrusy. Hits all the right notes. About as good as it gets for an IPA out of a bottle.

bottled - nice amber/orange color. A good IPA overall. Decent hop flavor and aroma.

355ml bottle. Enjoyed a bottle on my recent trip to Toronto. Pours a minimal size head and has a pale copper appearance. Huge citrus aromas, very hoppy. Light malts. Flavours are of bitter hops, cascade variety, inoffensive just lots of it, very citrusy. Very light roasted malts. Hint of Grapefruit on the finish. Nice dirty lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Some bitterness on the palate. Pretty good.

Pours a light copper with a thin white head that leaves lacing down the glass. Aroma is dominated by pine, with some floral and herbal notes in the background. Moderate sweetness up front with a hint of caramel, followed by a solid, but very well balanced bitterness. Piney, citrus and floral hop flavors. Lightly carbonated with a smooth mouthfeel. A sweeter, but balanced IPA that is quite drinkable.

Flight #2 at Southern Tier with koleminer20. Aroma is pine, grass, slight tropical fruit, resin, some dankness. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, clear. Taste is pine, malt bitterness, grass, floral, not much tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, bitter malt and pine aftertaste. Overall, meh. A wee bit too much malt.

A nice bitter, hoppy, drier version of IPA. One of the best. Only drawback is high alcohol.

HippieFee (446) - - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle - Very typical IPA style beer. Balanced hops and malt. Dry on the palate. I get citrus and grass flavors. Nothing very unique but a solid drinkable IPA.

Golden with a thin head. Faint grassy aroma. Grassy taste with a dry finish. Decent IPA.

Good hoppy/sweet aroma. Light colored with a huge white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Tastes great. Just enough hop bitterness, and that comes through at the very end of each taste. The palate is thick for the style - not watery, very well done

Bricks (1124) - Delaware, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Average appearance.. very bubbly, not much head to speak of. Aroma is very nice.. clean, floral, sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is clean, citrus floral hops.. a hint of sweet malt. Palate is above average for an IPA. Good quality IPA.
