Southern Tier Brewing IPA
What the brewers say
Our IPA has a vigorous hops profile, well-balanced malt background, and a medium body. It is most akin to an English-style IPA and is an intrepid ale that’s triple-hopped on its journey to your glass.
What our panel thought
The nose is big and herbal: lavender and a bit of rosemary. It may be the lavender, but it also seems fairly soapy. Underneath, there’s a bit of grape and blueberry. The flavor brings the blueberry to the fore, but the herbal backing is harmonious. The bitterness is clean and lasting.
What our editors thought
A floral and herbal nose offers a bit of throwback English feel with a touch of orange peel and honeysuckle for good measure. But it’s elevated by a deft handling of malt, as the crisp but characterful body provides the perfect foil.
