Southampton Burton IPA has a medium, off-white head and a mostly clear, bubbly, reddish-gold appearance, with a good amount of thick lacing left on the glass. There is a rich, roasted, malty aroma and a moderately hoppy, malty flavor, with hints of caramel and toffee. The mouthfeel is medium and Southampton Burton IPA finishes wet, refreshing, and very tasty. Overall, this is excellent.

This is a faithful recreation of the original India pale ale that started it all. Not the hop bomb that has become the accepted version. A well balanced, strong drinkable ale. Alcohol is 6.5%.
Pours a nice pale copper with a decent head. I remember drinking
an original IPA as an 18 yo many years ago and thinking "what a bitter useless beer". Boy how times have changed!

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

Appearance: amber; effervescent; medium off-white frothy head, long lasting, decent lacing

Smell: biscuity malt; orange peel; some piney notes

Taste: juicy malt with a quick bite of citrusy hops; finishes slightly dry with a lingering grapefruit dryness

Mouthfeel: creamy; medium bodied; added minerals noticeable while drinking

Remarks: very smooth and balanced; not in your face hop bite, but enough to know it's an IPA without overwhelming the maltiness

Pale orange in color with excellent clarity. Poured with a short white foam that reduced to a wispy, soapy cap that left sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Resinous pine and ripe citrus orange hop aromas with sweet caramel malt in the background. Creamy smooth feel with rich carbonation. Pine hop flavors are dominant throughout. Ripe citrus orange and pungent floral hop flavors up front and thru the middle with a sweet caramel malt bacbone. Finishes with a lingering pine hop bitterness.

Poured into a Shiner Bock pint glass. No freshness date. I'm honored to be only the second person to review this.

A- Pours a light copper color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a light sheet of surface foam. Below-average lacing.

S- Nice hop nose with a good amount of malt sweetness to back it up. Somewhat citrusy and floral but stays on the earthy side just as well to maintain good balance.

T- The taste is more malt heavy, actually reminding me of something closer to a strong pale ale rather than an IPA. Slight metallic taste along with a lingering bitterness that's not all that pleasant. As the palate starts to even out the flavors, the drinkability goes up but the vibrancy remains neutral. Just not what one would expect from the delightful nose.

M- A bit dry and sharp. Medium carbonation and a body that leans more toward the full side of things.

O- Pretty good, but didn't meet my expectations which were quite high.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Small head of white foam on top of a hazy copper body. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves light lace.

S - Fruity yeast with notes of plum and red apple as well as lightly herbal hops.

T - Caramel and red apple up front with notes of licorice, plum and cinnamon in the middle. Finishes with spicy hops and licorice yeast character.

M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Nicely done, a little lacking in the hop character but otherwise quite appropriately British.

I am sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a mug. the beer pours a clear copper hue with a 2 cm dense creamy eggshell white head.
Aroma is a bit of caramel and some grassy and spicy hops. Not a huge nose but appealing.
First sip reveals an average body with medium carbonation and a soft smooth texture.
Flavor is caramel and grainy malt up front then some spicy hops and a bit of a dry chalky note on the finish.
No hints of alcohol and certainly not an american IPA. This is a well balanced beer. I find it enjoyable and extremely easy to drink. Well made just dont expect to get hop smacked and you wont be disappointed.

Tawny amber with a slight haziness. A definite mineral edge pops out first followed by a warm biscuit and sourdough maltiness. Hops give some peachy fruitiness along with some herbal and woody notes. Bitterness is sharp, accentuated by the mineral qualities. Very enjoyable for what it is, which is a great attempt at an historical style. Don't expect a modern IPA and you won't be dissappointed.

An attempt to recreate the traditional Burton IPA, which is believed to be the first IPA brewed back in the early 1800s. They added minerals to the water in an attempt to replicated the water used at Burton-on-Trent when this style was first brewed. Since I'm reading Mitch Steele's IPA book which covers the evolution of the IPA, I was very interested to try this beer.

Pours a deep copper color which is more true to the modern IPA. I was expecting the color to be much lighter as the Burton IPAs were described to be.

Nose is malty with some faint hops

Taste is sweet, malty, with toffee & caramel notes. Some nice earthy hop bitterness on the way down. Definitely has the English IPA characteristics, very balanced, not hop forward like your American IPA.

Not sure how this compares to the original Burton IPA, but the taste is close to what I expected after reading about them. Seek this one out if you want to see what the classic Burton IPA was like. However, don't expect it to be anything like the American IPA we have all come to love.

Pours with an amber color, crystal clear with desent carbonation. The head is smallish and white leaving some lacing. Aroma is mostly malt based with hints of hops and minerals. Taste is really good. Balance malts and hops that have a bitter and sweet aspect, sweet and sour. A very good EIPA
