Very hoppy flavor. This one had a strange smell. I will have to try again.

Great hoppy ale, but not as good as in days of old, when brewed by Ipswich (now brewed in Baltimore) and sold in growlers- when it was one of the best beers in the world. now brewed in Baltimore

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 The beer after its debarkation from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a lightly hazed golden amber color with a frothy off-white head that is modest in size, the resultant lace a thin blanket to lie upon the glass. Nose has a slight hop floral spiciness backed by sweet malt, citrus crisp and clean, start is sweet with a pleasant grain profile, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is patiently hopped and pleasing in its acidity with the aftertaste droughty and long lasting, Ipswich makes some fine session beers, just sorry my friends, who visit, only visit once a year, but Iím thankful they always bring back a six pack of beer for poor old Gusler. lol
