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.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Pours a clear golden amber with a small bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to a collar of foam leaving spotty lacing. The smell is earthy and subtle with pine hops and a solid malt backbone dominating. The taste mirrors the smell with a grassy hop kick up front before the malts take over in the middle. The pine hops kick in a little in the finish with only the slightest bitterness lingering between sips. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little sticky with modest carbonation. This is decent IPA and very drinkable with a subtle, less overpowering hop profile.

pours golden amber with white fluffy head that last. the aroma is resin, grapefruit, pine, and earthy, with some citrus. the flavor is citrus with small amount of grapefruit, and alot of resin and pine. Some lighter caramel through. the palate leaves bitterness at the end and some lingering flavors. overall well balanced and quite refreshing at 7.3% hidden well.

Ive had the southern tier 2xipas and thought they were great tasting.... Gotta watch because they will sneak up on you. The regular southern tier is a little less hoppy but very tasty....loved it!

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.

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 (364) - 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.

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.
