3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Poured from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very cloud amber/light-copper color with a modest foamy white head that had average retention, along with good lacing and cling. Its aroma had a good blend of citrus, grain, and pine hops, along with some caramel malt and some light yeast and floral notes, but overall was a touch muted. Its taste was pleasantly bitter with notable grainy and light citrus hops, paired with a lighter mix of sweet caramel malt and touches of sugar and candy. The palate was very fizzy and carbonated, with a thin but mouth-filling body, and was dry and intense.

This is a nice IPA. Pours a light mahogany, somewhat amber color with off white head and very little lacing. Lemon, straw, citrus notes on the head. Pine, resin, hints of caramel, mild bitterness make for a really nice beer. It’s actually less hoppy than I expected, making this IPA unlike other hopped up ales.

The aroma is hoppy with much less citrus than one might expect. The beer has a smooth start and an acidic finish in the mouth. The taste is similar with some good balance starting out finished by what I find excessive bitters.

Light hop aroma, dark amber, somewhere between a regular IPA and an imperial. Smooth and malty like an imperial but a little bitter and not as full bodied, like a regular IPA. -March madness 2014

Pours a hazy orange with a smallish head. Nice aromas of caramel and orange. It has a nice balance, but the finish is a bit off.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was cloudy deep orangish gold with diminishing off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are floral citrus and pine with strong sweet malts, no alcohol. Taste are sweet caramal upfront gives way to pine, grapefruit, lemon, touch of tangerine. Palate was soft creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body, lasting piney sweet citrusy finish. A malty citrus piney solid IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ipswich I.P.A. has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and thin lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, white bread and citrusy hops. Taste is of citrus, toffee, caramel, sweet, white bread, and a hearty, but at the same time, subdued bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Ipswich I.P.A. finishes mostly dry, refreshing, relatively easy drinking, and bitter. No alcohol shows itself with this beer. Overall, this is most excellent. RJT

Pours a dark cloudy orange amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and taste is citrus pine hops upfront becomes more earthy as it warms up with some mild citrus fruity notes, caramel malt and yeast. Palate is a medium body, carbonation is fine. Finishes with a good caramel malt and yeast background followed by some good earthy hops bitterness for balance. Seems slightly heavy on the malt but still good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Definitely a different IPA..not the usual straight hop drink I’m used to. This has a bit of maltyness to it and is quite dry to finish as well. Roasted notes with a rather weak aroma. Not a bad beer...slightly spicy and bitter to finish.
