COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To admit that the brewer at Half Pints is a bit of a hophead is an understatement. This India Pale Ale is unabashedly hoppy, not only from the Amarillo hops we add to the brew kettle, but also from the northwest U.S. variety called Cascade that we add directly to the final tank. A firm toasted malt presence forms the background for all of these hops, and we're confident our Little Scrapper IPA could take other so-called IPA's to the mat if called upon to do so. Try it with a curry or a basket of beer battered fish & chips. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturized.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel - I find the aroma a bit too light. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw and caramel, leading to a rather bitter finish.

Hazy orange-amber color; generous head. Nice hoppy aroma, mild but with all the qualities: resiny, fruity, a bit sweaty; also a clear English hops footprint (?) and light apples. Dry toffee flavor, strong bitterness, even a bit harsh, and a bit yeasty; pleasant, moderate sweetness in the end. Good.

Hazy light amber color; thin head. The aroma is hoppy and partially fruity. The body is thin, not enough malty, with a strong bitterness, resiny, partially aromatic.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Cloudy amber with a loose head. Rich herbal, foresty hop aroma with light pale & toasty malt backdrop. Oh yeah. Fresh, foresty hop character laid over a toasty, breadcrusty malt backbone. It’s a simple but effective formula....highly quaffable.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Lightly hazed reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. Dark honey and clovers in aroma, interesting hopping. In mouth, a sweet caramel in beginnign, biscuitty, followed by a rather hopping, floral, but not quite to expectation. More like a pale ale. Thanks Kris for this new MB beer.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle at Bottlescrew Bill’s Old English Pub. Pours lightly hazy amber with a medium to large, off-white creamy head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, and citrus hops, honey and cookie malt, apple esters, and light diacetyl notes. Flavor is medium to moderate hops and bitterness, light esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2008
660ml bottle acquired in trade with HopTownHarry. Thanks for answering my call for Half Pints beers! Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of juicy oranges (like I just peeled one), grapefruit, caramel, and some pine. Tastes of citrus, toasty, earthy, and a trace of caramel. The tastes a bit of a let down compared to the aroma. On the thinner side.
