3.16/5  rDev -9.5%

No discernible dating on this bottle. If it is this beer is any where near the years listed on the label, it's vinegar...

Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Never cleared up, good head retention & above average lacing

S: Pears, figs, no hint of hops other than some woodyness

T: Follows the nose, woody hops & mineral dryness, also leafy hops up front. More figgy notes , leafy & woody hops, figs & pears as this warms. Finishes dry & fruity & more like an ESB, some mineral dryness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, decent balance

I like the concept, had a few burton IPAs over in England; this just seems like a very muted version, drinkable, but not worth buying

Poured into a standard pint glass a clear light golden with a creamy-like thin top that did last through the duration of me drinking it.Aromas of biscuit malt,toast,and faint mineral with not much hop presence,still not bad for the style it is.Toasted grain and caramel toffee flavors with more of that light mineral element in the finish,again just a light leafy hops presence.You know for what it is it's not bad,don't expect a big hopped up IPA,it's not supposed to be.

Short 12oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer is pale orange amber with nearly no head, and significantly hazy. Aroma is rich and malty, closer to barleywine than IPA? Aroma certainly does not deliver on any of the notes I expect, though it is pleasant.

Flavor is moderate to high intensity, with the hops coming out in a pretty well balanced bitterness, and bringing a lot of crispness to what otherwise could have been a pretty syrupy brew. Medium fizzy.

Drinkable, but English IPA? More like English Ale done with (heavy) American IPA proportions. Very B-.

Appearance/color good on pour (amber). Not much head. Smell is okay, but not really what I would consider typical of a good, craft IPA (ala Dogfish Head 60, Stone, BP Sculpin, or Lagunitas). Not really hoppy either. Would likely have a more mainstream appeal than to a hop-head or someone with a taste for a solid IPA. The closest comparison that I have would be Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale.

Pours a clear pale copper color with a small off-white head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma has an apricot, light tropical fruit hop aroma that is associated with British ales. Some minerals detected. There is an overall toffee like sweetness.

The taste is of malty brown bread and scorched caramel. Slightly buttery. There is some mineral notes but not as apparent as the traditional burton on trent EPA/EIPA. The hops have an apricot flavor and are grassy and peppery.

The feel is moderate with fizzy carbonation. More sweet on the palate than bitter. Bit surprised that this is 6.5% ABV, can't tell.

Not my favorite style by a long shot but Southampton did a good job replicating an EPA/EIPA

I'm pouring this into a plastic cup and it looks way too good for a plastic cup. Clear golden orange amber with a pure white head that has a good size and healthy retention. Beer stays covered all the way down. Nose suffers from the vessel but still has a delightful olfactory presence. Excellent malt presence and superb balance of caramel and grains. Hops are earthy and firm giving a mellower take on the American IPA signature while remaining quite hoppy. Taste is something that seems requires sophistication given the markedly different style British IPA are from American. The malt is lovely and multilayered with breads lightly toasted, light caramel sweetness, a mild English yeast fruitiness, covered by strong hops. Hops are earthy, (Fuggles I think) with a resiny oiliness that lingers cleanly. Some biscuit on the palate that makes me think Maris Otter malt as well. Feel is crisp with an exceptionally drinkable weight. Carbonation is lively keeping it delightful on the tongue. This is a great beer that seems to be lost on a Neanderthal expectation of hops smakdown in a style that doesn't warrant it. It's hoppy while being decidedly reserved in the British tradition.

Mix a six pick up. Twelve ounce bottle, into a pint glass.

Pours hazy copper/bronze. Light layer white foam. Mild pine nose, very light. Taste has a mild bitter, a little gritty and annoying. Very firm bitter finish. Even keeled, but not remarkable.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops are present. Taste is bitter, some piney hops, a bit of malts, not a lot of flavor other than bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I found this to be a mediocre beer.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a light golden orange amber. One finger fine white head with good retention and lacing. Looks good. Light aroma of pineapple and light caramel malt, not much hops present. Flavor is mild bready and light toasted malt, light citrus hops, low key, but well integrated. Mild citrus and hop aftertaste. The citrus has a mild astringent effect that slightly marrs the flavor. A bit of pleasant earthy spiciness developed in the finish as the beer warmed. Medium bodied. A mild English style ale that may well be true to style; unfortunately I've never had the chance to try a try early 20th century IPA, but this seems like it would be in character.
