Southampton Burton IPA has a medium, off-white head and a mostly clear, bubbly, reddish-gold appearance, with a good amount of thick lacing left on the glass. There is a rich, roasted, malty aroma and a moderately hoppy, malty flavor, with hints of caramel and toffee. The mouthfeel is medium and Southampton Burton IPA finishes wet, refreshing, and very tasty. Overall, this is excellent. RJT

ben4321 (4473) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/22/12

Aroma: The nose of this one has citrus hops, lemon, some toast/bread, and a little toffee
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a frothy white headn and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes light-medium sweet, with orange and lemon along with toast/bread, it finishes lightly bitter
Palate: The body is light (leaning medium), with an average-to-lively carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty tasty beer. I feel like they hit nicely on what they were trying to make here, which is a true to style British IPA. Even though it isnít super hoppy, the hops shine through enough to provide a nice balance to the citrus and bread flavors that are the more dominant aspect of the beer. It is quite drinkable as well.

reebtogi (4583) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that left some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light citrus. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a light citrusy and earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a slight tickle on the tongue. A decent IPA that is worth trying once, but nothing really memorable about this one.

jgb9348 (4993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Slightly copper coloured body with a golden glow and a thickish, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy, nutty hops with a bit of caramel and toffee noticeable with a tiny bit of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Chewy toffee and malty flavour with a good earthy hop bitterness and very low alpha acid hops showing some earthy and nutty tastes. Aftertaste is caramelised sugars, some nuts and a bit of malt - definitely more of an EPA than anything even close to an American IPA. Overall, a decent beer, but not great, and especially not for the style - there arenít many hops here at all, but in an EPA category, this would be run of the mill to perhaps a tad better. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Wegmanís in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-October-2012.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2012
On draught several times. Pours a clear amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of orange, but not heavily so. Most definitely not a west coast IPA, but more in the traditional style. The flavor is a solid combination of malt and orange. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Nice solid ale.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit fiery, clear, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a soft biscuity nose, hops are a bit weak, tea like perhaps.   Not a sharp or strong IPA from the smell of it.   Soft bitterness up front, a touch of earth, a touch of tea leaves.   Not very bright, yet not dull.   Seems more of a Pale Ale to me, but then again I live in the land of Hops.   Towards the back there is a little bit of citrus coming through, which is nice.   Seems to have more going on with the tongue than on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, soft hops linger... very soft.   Nice citrus based malt sweetness also presides.   Decent IPA, but could stand to be a bit sharper and more vibrant on the nose.

From bottle to tulip. Citrus piney aroma. Balance sweet and dry bitter finish. Not bad, light and refreshing.

12-oz. Thanks j! Pours a crystal clear medium amber. Loose white sudsy head. Big bright orange marmalade floral nose. Chalky fizzy medium body. Perfect marmalade on toast mid palate. Mild finish on a chalky feel. Good beer.

A fairly mild IPA. Not as much bitterness as I usually expect from the style. Maybe Iím just spoiled now?

Bottle, thx Andy. Pours deep caramel, chunky white head. Nose is light hop and a little wood/sawdust, powerful earthy grittiness on the tongue, notes of citrus in there but "grainy" is my theme.
