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.

commonmac (1091) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle from MGM (sorry, small business owners). Consumed in a beautiful Bent Paddle glass. Attractive golden orange hue. Nice white attractive head. Nose is a blend of pine and citrus rind. Definitely makes you excited for a high quality IPA. Taste is a well balanced with a stronger malt presence than others in the style. Pleasant hop overtone without bringing much bitterness to the table. Resiny mouthfeel. Very drinkable with a little alcohol presence that hits home towards the end. Great brewery.

Quick3Beers (1022) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Pours an amber from a bottle. Aroma is of vomit and tropical fruit. Thankfully, only the fruit and a big bitterness is conveyed in the mouth. Good beer.

ibrubeer (313) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Draft at Buffalo Marriott. Very little aroma. Amber color with white head that lingers nicely, good lacing. Nice malt balance, smooth hoppiness, a little citrus flavor. Not a hop bomb. Med to full mouthfeel, smooth. Overall, a very drinkable IPA, more in the style of a British IPA. I like it!

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.

AleRider78 (732) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
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.

spokeydonkey (88) - Albany, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2016
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.

ebone1988 (1473) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2016
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.
