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.

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.

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 (4045) - 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.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle: Misty brown with orange tinge. Full creamy head with high laps of lacing. The nose is planty with less of a tribute to hops but moreso an homage to asparagus or artichoke. Itís probably some DMS messing around here. Lightly metallic. In the flavor it becomes tough to shake that horrid vegetal quality that was in the nose. Light pixy stick sweetness and a dull bitter thud against the palate. The finish is dry, bitter. The nose kills this.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Nice copper color with a thin cream head. Body is slightly clowded, a very attractive beer. Aroma is wonderful and hoppy smooth. Floral, creamy, citrus, all put together quite well. Flavor is a nice american pale ale, medium maltyness and a good dose of hops. Flavor comes with an ending that feel a little soapy. A really solid beer all around though.

fly (1441) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Nice, deep colored ale with a grainy texture much like the Hopsickle toned down to a Cali pale ale. Feel like the proximity to hop country floats through the vast majority of beers Iíve sampled here as well they should I suppose.

A deep copper in appearance with a nice frothy white head. Has a pleasant floral and citrusy aroma. Nicely hopped with a clean finish on the palate.
