12 oz. bottle poured into a curved porter glass.

A- a hazy amber, with a finger of off white head that laces nicely.

S- The fruity component of the ale yeast jumps from the glass. Some toasted bread lies underneath.

T- Just plain tasty. Much more to it than most English Pales. More toasted bread than biscuity. It's a showcase of the yeast, as the fruity esters are what make it so darn tasty. A very, very light earthy hop is there, which just adds to the complexity.

M- Pretty viscous for a pale ale. Slick on the palette.

O- My introduction to Ipswich, and I'm very much looking forward to trying the other three in the variety pack! Great stuff. Reminds me a bit of Brooklyn Pennant Ale.
