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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
22 oz. bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours a nice deep orangey amber color with a moderate sized but long-lasting head. Predominantly sweet with toasty and mildly caramel malts, floral and lightly citrus hops along with undertones of vanilla. Toasty malt flavor, a bit of summer fruit as well as hints of lemon, spruce, floral hops and a bit of spice in the finish. Medium body, gentle carbonation. Nice little session ale.

SpringsLicker (3221) - Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2006
Thanks to awaisanen for this one! 22 oz bottle. Hazy amber pour that raises a 3-dimensional creamy head. Malty aroma with hops in the background. Clean and dry with a bitter finish. Plenty of malt in the backbone holds this one together nicely. More than an APA, not quite an IPA.

mjg74 (2670) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2006
Bottled. Pours a nice medium amber color. Aroma is somewhat hoppy with a little maltiness. Woody hoppiness right up front. A fair amount of bitterness throughout. Some maltiness. Finish is kind of citric and bitter.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 17, 2006
Nose of pine and spruce, heavy perfume. Pours a clear golden. The huge sticky off white head is rocky and mostly lasting with decent lace. The brew is well balanced but kinda shallow; not far off from a pilsener, though the finish has more to offer than your standard pils. The medium body is soft and creamy. If I was judging against style, the rating would have been much lower. Huge disappointment, as the other sample Iíve enjoyed from this brewer was outstanding.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2006
22oz. bottle. Pale orange color with a small white head. Sweet floral hop aromatics with tinges of diacetyl and DMS. Acrid floral hop components with some astringent resin. Muted sweet malt underneath corny DMS flavor. Residual resinousness and cooked corn in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light, somewhat dry.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Hazy buff color with a fluffy honey colored head. Floral hop and slightly sour malt aroma. Grassy hop flavor with some cooked vegetables. A bit watery. NIce bitter finish with some metallic notes. Needs some work.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2005
This beer is highly carbonated and forms a four finger thick tan colored head that sits atop a brilliantly clear amber colored beer that has copper highlights. As the head settles it forms an intricate lace pattern and dense rocky outcrops of foam. The aroma is quite nice, it is a mix of citrus fruits (grapefruit, orange and maybe even some peach like hints) mix with some subtle herbal notes and a hint of pine. The aroma is quite nice and I would almost describe it as perfume-like.

The beer is light and sweet up front, which accentuates the citrus characteristics of the hops. As you move towards the end the beer picks up a slight astringent herbal note, which, in combination with the bitterness helps to hold the upfront sweet fruit notes in check. With this beer being so highly carbonated I was a little afraid of it being infected, but luckily I see no sign of this what-so-ever. I really like the balance that this beer has; it is sweet and fruity up front (from malt and hop notes), and actually has a dry bitter finish that just begs for you to take another sip.

The grapefruit is definitely the most prominent note in this beer and it couples really well with the light, easy quaffing character that makes this beer so enjoyable. This is definitely one of those beers I would not mind quaffing for an evening or even an afternoon. While this beer may not have the biggest or boldest flavors out there it is really well integrated and incredibly well integrated. This is my favorite brew from this brewery so far.

Golden orange color, nice blend of bitter citrus taste and sweet malt, finish got a little metallic at times with some green peppers.
