A. It has a pale bronze color. Fairly see-through. Lots of little bubbles coming up the side. It has a nice white foamy head and some good lacing.
S. It has a good scent of hops.
T. There's a sweet dark fruit grape taste to it. A bit of a watermelon taste., perhaps. Some hop flavor.
M. It has a tart aftertaste and a bit of a hoppy bite.
O. Nice and flavorful. Nothing that really jumps outs except that it is a fruity IPA.

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.

12 oz bottle into Hardywood Park tulip. no bottled on date.
A: hazy caramel hued body. head is slightly off-white and frothy. retention is good with very good lacing.
S: caramel aroma. fruity. kinda smells like apple juice. perhaps acetaldehyde? a little bit of herbal bitterness, but nothing substantial.
T: slight bitterness throughout. a earthy hop flavor goes along with it. sweet grain provides backbone, but no more than your typical american IPA.
M: moderate carb on a medium body.
D: i feel like this example may not have been the freshest, but it is a shame when there is no bottle conditioning to let the customer know! the acetaldehyde in the nose definitely threw me off as i felt some late kettle, or even dry hopping, additions would have really helped this brew out. not a great example of a not so great style to begin with.

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 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy bronze-gold color with just a thin cap of off-white head that had no retention or lacing.
The aroma was very nice, good, earthy malts and nicely gentle hops that provided a nice contrast. The flavors were also very good, those same earthy malts were fuller and the hops a bit crisper. The beer was very nicely balanced, and had a dry finish.
The body was smooth, even and well balanced. Drinkability was excellent, I could easily drink these all afternoon. Overall, a very nice take on the style. This is a must try if you see it.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours clear golden with a white head and plentiful streaming bubbles. The head dissipates slowly as expected with this style. The aroma is a nice blend of sweet and bready malts with some earthy and citrus hops. The malt brings a toasted bread flavor with back end earthy bitterness from the hops. There is some citrus in the flavor as well, but this is mild. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry. The drinkability is high. This is a good beer that is solid and true to style.

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.

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 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.
