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.

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 don’t 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.

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.

[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.

Had this at the brewpub, and really liked it. Behind Hopsickle and the IIPA, this would be one of my favs from this brewery. It’s nice and clean, with just enough hop bite to keep you interested, but very easy to drink. A well balanced, nice PA.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with DarkElf. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, floral, spice and some caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, caramel, and lightly spicy. Starts of a little sweet and ends with a grapefruit finish.

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.

One of the best pale ale’s I’ve ever had. 22oz bottle from Bev Mo. Pours a deep, hazy golden color. Aroma of pine, hopps, and some citrus.....some malts as well. Another satisfied customer of Moylans Brewing.

SpringsLicker (3264) - 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 (2887) - 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 I’ve enjoyed from this brewer was outstanding.
