22oz bottle. Bottled on 08/23/2012. Orange color, tall foam. May have an infection, seems to have too much fizz. Aroma of band-aids, pine bark, and caramel malt. Tastes of band-aid and caramel malt. Over-hopped, over bottle-conditioned. Finishes with an overly bitter English Pale Ale flavor. (3633)

This was a very harsh beer. It started off with a metallic bite. Eventually I was able to discern some maltiness, but this was a very bitter (in a bad way) drink. I was able to see a little of the English Bitter, but only because I was looking for it. Disappointing beer.

(From notes 2011) bottle poured into a glass at Durgin Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Pours a hazy amberish orange color with a pretty thick head that settles quickly. Aroma is a good balance of sweet malt and floral hops. Slightly sweet at first taste with a somewhat bitter finish Very good drink-ability, I wouldnít turn another one down. Serving type: bottle

Ick. Iím surprised by Ipswich; this is indeed a bad beer. Pours orange. Thick off-white head. Smells and tastes of eggs, cabbage, plastic, heat, and Bible paper. Vegetables and soy by swallow. Fuck this.

Like most Ipswich brews this is just an old fashioned, no-frills type of beer. A little on the dry side. The hop profile is similar to a pilsner. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

Pint pour of deep gold with full finger head. Nose is malted hops... kind of a blend, but balanced. English Pale Ale, so i guess that makes sense. Flavor is pickles... I hate pickles. Maybe thatís from the hops? itís fairly balanced. Malty, and thick. Full medium body. Not my favorite...

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 25, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The thick chewy flavor contained notes of hops. A decent quaffable brew that I would consider drinking again.

Either this beer has a very short shelf life, or it is most boring beer Iíve ever had. The pour is nice, but that is about it. I get a slight bitter quality in the beginning, but then only a very slight malt flavor at the end and thatís it. Flavor is enhanced somewhat by a foamy pour. No real aroma to speak of. For me, not worth getting again.

A-- Poured a hazy brownish yellow color with a white head, almost 2 fingers and some solid lacing. Looks fairly carbonated. S-- Hops, roasted malts, a little floral and get some carmel as well. T-- First the malt, then the bitterness from the hops. Kind of aggressive but in a very good way M-- A little sweetness from the carmel, the roasted malts and the hops are well balanced. The hops do come at you. Good carbonation and does finish well. D-- Nice beer. This is a good ale and fairly complex and does have good character. Could do 2 of these easily.

Very good. Itís getting harder and harder to find a good, basic pale ale. The market is oversaturated with hop monsters, which I love, but not when itís 112 outside. Great warm weather beer, and at 5.4 ABV this is a great beer for a bbq in the summer.
