General Thoughts:
Southern Tier IPA is a really great, light, refreshing beer, with a strong hops flavour. The hops flavour in this beer isn't overpowering, its perfectly balanced with the bitterness from the hops and then the subtle sweetness, just helping to balance the whole beer out. There is little carbonation to this beer and a slight bitter after taste. Southern Tier IPA is a really light, smooth beer that you could find yourself drinking many of as they are easy drinking and delicious. The most outstanding thing about this beer is that it doesn't taste in anyway overly alcoholic or strong, which is a real achievement considering it comes in at  7.3% ABV. On the whole I was really impressed with the Southern Tier IPA as it has the nice strong hops flavour that I look for in an IPA but also balances the bitterness that comes with those hops, to produce a really well balanced, smooth beer that doesn't fell like its going to knock you for six. I would definitely recommend this beer to you all and would advise getting out there and giving it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed. All in all Southern Tier IPA is a fantastic, well balanced, easy drinking IPA, that all can enjoy.
