3.5/5  rDev -12.9%

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet and fruity with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a quick burst of piney hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice flavorful IPA to pound down for a long time.

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.

Small head that settles to rim bubbles quickly. Some slippery lace after each sip. The liquid is light amber with very mild haze.

Pleasant, fresh hop aroma. Pale malt smell in the background.

Brief, lightly toasted malt. There's a black pepper bite that comes through very quickly, leaving an extremely bitter swallow and long aftertaste. Relatively thin bodied with an above average level of CO2.

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.
