3.5/5  rDev -13.6%

Very clear and light straw colored with an inviting aroma of honey malt and tangerine hops. Rich flavor of pine and citrus hops, a pepper bite, with subtle malt riding beneath. Very hoppy, with great hop flavors. Hop forward with moderate bitterness. Full mouthfeel, finishes tingly, hops warm the cheeks. Haven't had an Ipswich in a while, this one is really good.

A different brew under the Ipswich label. This hop-forward beer lacks the malty backbone present in other Ipswich ales. That's a good thing, and I applaud the brewmaster for changing it up. This is different than anything else from the New England region, for sure, maybe closest to the Sierra Nevada hop harvest offerings, and even Celebration. Try it!

And, if you haven't, try the Ipswich Stout. It's top flight, world-class.

12 oz.bottle into goblet. hops front and center with a hint of malt. pours coppery clear with little or no cloudiness. may well be the clearest of ipswich's pale ale lineup.

Stopped in at the Hop Harvest release at the brewery on August 23. Had a coupla samples, then out with a case. Good at first sip fer sure. Fast forward to NOW! Givin' it a good tasting tonight, even though it's a school night. Ella hops impart grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors say de bottle.

Nice aroma, hoppy as advertised, and full-bodied in the Ipswich tradition. Solid lacing. Chewy hops. And I AIN'T sending the Bros beer. They can stop by if they need a pop....

Anyways, another great brew from the folks in Ipswich.

Poured into a modified tulip glass.
A - Straw colored with exceptional clarity, gentle carbonation caps out with a thin white crown. Lacing
follows the glass to the bottom.
S - Fresh grass, only a hint of citrus, a hint of conifer and orange.
T - Intriguing, the start is floral, then a balancing act of malt and hops. A fabulous display of
craft. Not weighted in any one area makes this stand out.
F - Light carbonation keeps the palate clean, starts with hints of hop oils, middle may be the best where blends of
light malts and fresh hops meet.
O - Ipswich has a real treat here. Worth seeking out.
