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.

Bottle. Amber color with a huge white head - some yeast floaties in the glass. Aroma of oranges and mango with a sweetness to it-fantastic aroma. Body is a little thin, but very easy to drink. Flavor of grapefruit, but not the bitterness you’d expect. Very fruity and balanced. Just wish there was a little more body to it. Some sweetness at the end.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 (22-ounce bottle, purchased directly at the brewery) Holy cow, talk about a strong grapefruit and sweet orange citrus nose! I could keep sniffing this all day! A previous tasting did not have a pleasant nose, and certainly not this awesome, so buy it fresh from the brewery and drink soon after; Excellent west coast pale ale, moderately malty, fairly sweet with strong, distinct orange citrus overtones, and very floral in nature; Strong red grapefruit flavor is bitter and hoppy from start to finish; Medium bodied, but with a good, solid mouthfeel; Dark golden color; Smallish off-white head has very good retention with lacing like randomly shaped objects sticking to the glass; I had NONE of the nightmarish head problems others are complaining about; One hell of a good beer, and I'm not a big APA fan

Tap@Moylans brewpub. Pretty decent stuff. Typical lychee and grapefruit, but never over the top with this beer, good session APA.

So funny that everyone that had this in a bottle, went through the same thing I did pouring this stuff. GIGANTIC head and when the top popped, it had a loud PFFFFTTTT sound. (at least thats what it sounded like). Go ahead, say it. LOL. Anyway, rocky head and nice floral aroma. When you finally battle through the head, the taste is both hoppy and sweet. Very drinkble and very good.

What happened to this beer? When I poured this beer the head exploded a good 6 or 7 inches in the glass! Along with the mystery junk floating on the top, it was hard to finish this beer. to paraphrase the old saying "tryer beware"

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 I must comment on this brew. I will start by saying I am a huge fan of Moylans imperial stout. However upon pouring this nightmare it exploded with a dirty head 15 feet high! Ok just kidding. But not by much. The aroma was old citrus, tart and medicine like. Maybe even a little old basement smelling. Dirty grey floaties all over. I hesitated even trying this but I hoped it tasted better than it looked. To my saddness. It was like drinking a combo of liquid gym socks sweat, with a highly acidic tang. perhaps I had a bad bottle. I may try another bottle to see if my impression changes. Maybe. UPDATE: I recently picked up another bottle and reached the same conclusion. This maybe a dud.

Foamer. Incredible head - like an ice cream float. Nice hoppy nose - flowers abound. Huge floral hop flavor has a nice sweet malt balance. Zesty mouthfeel of a highly carbonated beverage. Orange in appearance with a lot of yeasty floaties. Get past the head - you'll like this.

cidery aroma, cloudy orange and ridiculously overcarbonated, sticky spritzy, orangey hops with good bitterness

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Draft at brewpub. Medium orange amber, little head. Bitter hop aroma, fairly aggressive. Herbaceous hops with a balancing sweetness in the mouth. Almost a sauvignon blanc cat piss note. Good stuff.
