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.

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.

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

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!

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.
