Southern Tier IPA

Review - Southern Tier Brewing Company's IPA

"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." -- Southern Tier Brewing Co.

Pours a light amber color with a small, fizzy white head. Quickly diminishing head. Fair lacing. Aroma is of bread malts with a sweet kick, perhaps caramel, as well as hops in the form of light grass. Initially sweet, and then moving to a moderately bitter finish with a bite. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery texture with soft carbonation.
