Right*O*Way IPARight*O*Way IPA
Notes: Right-O-Way IPA is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with citrusy hops and floral aromas. These flavors, with the addition of lightly kilned malts and moderate hop bitterness, make Right-O-Way a refreshing and easy drinking beer. The sessionable 4.6% abv makes this one of the “easier” beers we’ve ever made. Enjoy it in your favorite glass or straight out of the bottle. Either way, make it Right-O-Way.

Pours an amber color with a modest aroma of hops and citrus. Various hop profiles are evident in the taste, with hints of citrus fruits as well. It's a very drinkable IPA.

For what it is, it's really good. A nice change of pace from the watered-down fractional/session IPAs I've tried lately. Hazy (unfiltered?) yellow/orange with subtle carbonation and a moderate (rather than thin) mouthfeel. Very nice initial hops on the tongue that mellows to a hint of warm, buttery malt at the end. Very unique flavor profile for its type. Worth trying.

a real miss for southern tier. the session ipa is hard too do and they seem to overdo the hopping and left the malt lacking in balancing out the bitterness. unbalanced and watery, will not buy again

This is a citrusy, bitter-at-the=end IPA which is modeled after ST's regular IPA -- basically has the same taste, but less alcohol. Certainly fine, but we're not crazy about.

Citrus-y sessionable with a nice biscuit bite at the end. Surprised me, it's actually very good

This beer has a bad grassy taste and finishes with no flavor at all. Not very good

Clear golden color with a bright white head. The smell is of serious hops...spicy and peppery....backed by a nice fruit scent...peach and apricot, with a bit of citrus. The taste is strong with hop flavor, bitterness, and a background of malt. Flavorful and medium in body. This is an excellent IPA.

Crystal clear with a pale copper color. The head dissipates quickly to single layer of rim bubbles. Very few spots for lace.

The nose starts off with a strong dose of caramel...lightly sweet. Very mild hop notes in the background.

The body comes across to me as a bit thin and watery. Above average carbonation. This causes the caramel malt flavors to be muted. The bittering hop is stronger on the tongue and dominates the swallow. Moderate aftertaste.

Hops on the nose. The head seemed to dissipate quickly. Strong hop flavor. Fuller body than most IPAs I have had. Grapefruit notes from the hops. Bread like finish.

Aroma is biscuit and hop, hint of caramel. Nice thick head. Flavor's carbonic tang, hops up front, followed by some malt sweetness, then lingering bitterness in finish. Decent enough brew.
