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

Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and grapefruity with nice hop notes and a bit of pine. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty to start with a slight citrus note and a piney bitter finish. Medium bodied smooth and a touch dry.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2005
Aroma was of the floral varity. Appearance cloudy orange with a thick tan head. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. Head stayed on top of beer till the end. Citrus hop flavor and it was cool and crisp on the palate. I would of thought I was drinking an IPA not a pale ale. Great beer.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Bottle. Clouded amber with millions of particles suspended in it. TALL foamy tanned head. Aroma is piney and has notes of being in the deep forest. Very plantlike and hoppy. Light creamy malts. Taste is also very piney and earthy with light sweet maltiness. Tasy beer, nonetheless. Body is medium and very carbonated. Finish is more pine, malt sweetness, some herbal notes, and light fruit notes (citrus).

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2004
I opened this bottle and the crazy thing foamed up all over the place. This pale ale had a very hoppy strong taste to it, lots of malt, and a good bitterness at the end. This brew pours a hazy darker orange with a tall off-white head. Very thick and smooth brew that has a good hop balance.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Clear amber with a rather large foamy light manila head. The aroma is strong, fruit (tropical fruit and citrus), seaweed, and light malt. The favor is a nice medium fruit hop, sweet malt and bitter hops. Nothing overwhelming, very much a session beer and one of the better brews from this brewery (which is not my favorite btw.)
