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.

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.
