COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium-bodied, unfiltered, English-style pale ale with subtle hoppiness and a smooth malty flavor that has made it our flagship product.

Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy, hazy, deep amber color with a large, foamy off-white head that had average retention, and modest cling and lacing. The aroma had a sweet fruity effect with ample malt featuring caramel and sugar, and a slight citrus note. Its taste was predominantly sour and fruity, with a barley grain character, and little sweetness. The body was a tad harsh with a thickish, dry feel, and low to average carbonation and life.

sonnycheeba (4093) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from sampler pack. Pours orange/amber with thick fizzy head. Aroma is cookie and cereal malts, light caramel, light toast, some raisins, and light floral notes. Flavor is bready malts forward with supporting floral notes, some dark fruit esters, and and light woody notes; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

12oz into a pint. Pours a dark orange fluid amber medeling color. Taste is up front dirty hoppy bitter. Hops up front but then the medeling malts transpire to form this brew. A nice brew for the style, fresh full bodied ales are nice, especially in the cold weather. Spices transpire to fold into the mix joyfully as well. A for effort, B for product.

unclemattie (4328) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
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.

tbopslt (354) - New York, USA - FEB 23, 2013
(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...
