COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of the classic Pale Ale style is named in tribute to County Tipperary, our founders Fatherís Homeland. Sweetly sharp and smoothly bitter, this beer straddles the line between what you want and what you need. Itís not a long way to Tipperary anymore! Slainte.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2006
Partly cloudy orange-copper body with a short-lived white head. Some light watered down caramel in a watery thin body. Some fruity/grassy hops supply a welcomed light to medium bitterness. Hard to describe anymore than this. Competently put together but ultimately generic session beer. Named in the honour of their Tipperary County founding fathers, may they be remembered longer than this forgettable beer.

22 oz. bottle purchased through HiTimeWine - Pours a clear orangish-golden color with a small off white head. Very light lacing. Has a citrus hop aroma. Has a bitter citrus hop flavor. The beer seems to coat the tongue. Dry finish. Medium body. Decent beer

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
Medium hazy amber pour. Rather shy nose proposes soft honeyed biscuitiness that backs the mostly crisp, spicy, herbal and citrusy hops. Green profile, rather sweet, though the bitterness eventually comes out decently and without procuring no abrasiveness. Remains quite spicy and dry. Nice little pale ale in the rules of the art and adding little touches here and there.

Tmoney99 (11475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a large off-white fizzy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

Any first impressions?
-A mild veil covers the light amber orange.
-Worty sweetness and the citrusy character of pink grapefruit provide a simple aroma.
-Weak honeyed cereals and strolling orangey fruitiness show signs of weakening.
-The low carbonation appears to emulate a cask mouthfeel, as the lean maltiness is showcased in all in its lackadaisicality.

What if you dig deeper?
-Is that DMS rising in the aroma, or are the herbal hops exceedingly vegetal?
-Timid grassy hop bitterness announces its presence, but fails to garner any interest.
-This bottle might not be fresh, but we donít know since there is no date whatsoever on the bottle.
-This decent pale ale is obviously made for sessions, but in this form it is highly forgettable.

Bottle; no date.

heemer77 (5148) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2006
From a bottle. This one hit me the right way. The body was dark gold with a white head. The smell was grapefruit with some almonds and sweet caramel. The taste was bitter pine with some grpefruit and walnuts. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy. A pretty damn good APA.

BrewDad (5100) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2006
[2006 - Oregon Brewers Festival] A golden colored brew with a good easy to drink flavor. Liked this in the sun and it was smooth and had some great flavors. The hops and malt balance was very good.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Had this at the brewpub, and really liked it. Behind Hopsickle and the IIPA, this would be one of my favs from this brewery. Itís nice and clean, with just enough hop bite to keep you interested, but very easy to drink. A well balanced, nice PA.
