In new York city and just bought this pale ale. I admit that I am not a fan of pale ales but this one is as good as I've had. It is not overly hoppy which turns me off. Also, it does not have an overly flowery aroma. A light head with modest carbonation feels clean on the palate. I am on vacation and beer always tastes better on vacation. Bought this at the whole foods near the sw corner of central park. Poured into a plastic glass at my room.

S- Served from a chilled 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A- Cloudy golden orange color with yellow undertones. Has about a fingers worth of white head that laces nicely on the brim of the glass.

S- Smells of sweet hops with sort of a honey finish.

T- Tastes like an IPA would normally taste. Primed with bitter hops, and finishes with almost a sweet honey taste.

M- Moderately carbonated, full bodied IPA.

D- Not a very difficult IPA to drink. I'm not a huge fan of IPA's but I would drink this one again if offered to me.

Poured into a mug.

Chunky, white merangue-pie looking texture that leaves very nice lacing. The brew is a pale copper in color.

Smells of herbal hops and sweet biscuts.

Tastes of herbal hops and mild malt. Nice level of hop bitters. Nicely balanced...

Mouthfeel is smooth and light medium. Carbonation is present, but definitely not overdone.

Easy drinking pale ale - anyone who likes pale ales should dig this. Not overly hopped like many others, but manages to strike an excellent balance. Caseworthy...

Draught @ Southampton. Earthy, peppery hop aroma, with hints of fruits (lemon) and pine. Some malt contributuon in the nose as well with hints of biscuit and caramel. Copper color, with a full white head. Fresh, lush, grassy, earthy hop character supported by a killer body. Nice beer, of course, it’s from Southampton.

Serving type: on-tap

I got this growler at SPH. I drank it in a goblet.

Pours a hazy light amber/gold with a one finger head of off-white foam. Carbonation looks medium. The head drops to islands and a ring, with decent lacing.

Aroma is soft floral/earthy hops and gentle nutty, toffee caramel malt, with a soft fruitiness. My mouth is watering...

Flavor is clean, nutty pale and caramel malt, and earthy hops, with the hops being the main focus. It's semi-sweet, very tasty and delish. Aftertaste is bitter, sweet, and yummy.

This has a medium body, soft to medium carbonation, and finishes semi-sweet and bitter.

This is a poundable pale ale; good bitterness, good malt backbone, good caramel sweetness, and great hop flavor. Very well balanced.

This beer poured a dark amber and had a light head. The initial taste is probably the most flavorful I have ever tasted. This beer is the epitome of what a fine crafted beer should taste like. You can taste every fine ingredient. You get the true barley taste in this beer, it tastes slightly toasted... to perfection. Any Pale ale fan will LOVE this beer. Well done Southampton Publick House!

Pours a golden amber with a small head that leaves behind minimal lacing...The perfect mix of floral hops and citrus aromas rise up from my pint glass (I haven’t even tasted it yet and I'm already intoxicated by its aroma)..

Starts off with a toasted malt and grapefruit flavor that is overcome by a crisp hoppiness that goes down easily.. light bodied.. and very refreshing..

If I had been given this sample blindly I would have guessed it was a 3 floyds offering..

All too often I find beers where the hops just don't fit smoothly with the rest of the flavors, but as pale ale's go, this is by far my favorite example of the style, it isn’t merely hoppy just to be hoppy, it has a smooth hop character that melds beautifully with the rest of the flavors...can't wait to come across this beer again

This is everything a beer should be. Comes a golden bronze like color with a decent head, leaving lots of lace on the glass. Smell is nutty, roasted and citrousy. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich, but soft and light at the same time. Taste is roasted nuts, hop oils and grass. Finishes lightly bitter, so nice.

On-Cask At David Copperfields, NYC. Bright ruddy orange with no head to be found. The aromas are just as good, if not better than the tap version of this beauty. Pine needles, citrus fruits, buttery biscuits, it's all there. The taste is hoppy up front with a lovely pine flavor and the middle is malty and quite English. The finish is less dry than the tap version of this beer as well. On cask this beer is even more of a session quaffer! Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and drinkability is insane. If you get a chance to try this one on cask... take it!

This beer pours a hazy yellow with a quickly disappating white head. The flavors start out slightly sour, but they smooth out. The mouthfeel is full. Once this beer go going, it was quite enjoyable. In my opinoion, it needs to get closer to room temperature before it can be enjoyed.
