Commercial Description
Southern Tier IPA - 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 drank 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 tripled on its journey to your glass for a fully aromatic experience.

    A hoppy yet refreshing IPA that always cleanses the palate and leaves the drinker satisfied, a lighter amber color and solid fragrance round off this delightful IPA.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

    Appearance: The color was orangey amber with a foamy off white head. Its head slowly fades to just a thin covering of bubbles.

    Smell: Hops attack the nose with spruce pine, resin and light citrusy hop aromas.

    Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor hits your tongue with bold piney and citrusy hop flavors. Malt flavor lies underneath and offers some balance with a mildly sweet and bready tone. The palate has a slightly oily smooth texture with a medium body and soft carbonation.

    Notes: This is one solid IPA that has good flavor and drinkability.
