Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
After over a year of prototyping R&D batches of Nu Skool IPA, this final version is one special beer. It’s an approachable, well-balanced IPA with slight malty sweetness that’s brimming with tropical, fruity, spicy, piney & citrus character. To contrast our IPA (brewed since 2002), which most closely resembles a traditional English IPA in malt & hop bills, we wanted to brew an IPA in a new way. Like craft brewers, hop farmers have come a long way. This beer showcases just how far we’ve come with alluring aromas & explosive flavors using only new American & experimental hops. There’s no need to add anything else. It’s time to graduate to the next level of hop flavors with Nu Skool IPA.

HOP PROCESS: We used 3.5 lbs. of “new school” varieties of hops per barrel of beer. We load our hopback to the brim with Mosaic hops for a big tropical fruit character. A nice whirlpool dose of experimental hop #07270 gives the beer a flavorful, resinous character. We then dry hop this beer on two separate days with a large amount of Mosaic hops in our hop cannon & Simcoe + Equinox two days later.

a fine IPA....poured from can into tulip glass...golden yellow color with nice level of foam and lacing around the glass

when poured, the hops and grapefruit aromas come through nicely...it tasted like most IPAs that I've had the opportunity to taste except....there was noticeable fruit flavors, kind of like a passion fruit (I think).

overall....this one was enjoyable!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on November 11, 2017. Look is appealing. Smell and taste is bitter citrus, tropical fruit, pine and spice. Feel has a crisp bite.

Looks like a golden pale yellow beer
Smells grapefruit
Tastes tart, fruity, good bite, no lingering dank.
Feels sharp, refreshing.
I'd buy it again. I like tangerine type ipas. They're balanced w citrus and hops w no after taste like an onion or too piney.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Pale yellow in color, with a thin white head. The smell consists of pine and citrus. The taste is the same as it smells, but a little sour at the end.
The feel is middle of the road. Overall this beer is a generic IPA that is sour.

Nu Skool IPA | Southern Tier Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's two fingers thick, with webbed lacing, and a hazed golden body.

Smells like "pine" hops with citrus juice.

I taste clean, crisp, and bitter hops being complimented by the juices most seamlessly.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll rate Nu Skool IPA | Southern Tier Brewing Company at a 4.5. A very successfully brewed juice blended IPA if you ask me.
