A very balanced and satisfying IPA--I wished for more piney nose but it's hard to complain about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I poured a 12oz bottle into a goblet. There was no freshness date whatsoever.

Appearance: Hazy complexion of rusty orange/light brown. Forms a good sized, white, frothy head which laces and retains well.

Smell: Rather sweet and malty for the style. Yellow lollipops, some caramel and a hint of stone fruit.

Taste: Iím not sure why American breweries make English-style beers when their target audience wants American-style beers. There are a few other of these beers on the market and many are superior to Southampton Burton IPA. This definitely has that classic British character of light confectionery notes of caramel, toffee and a hint of honey. Thereís a burst of hop bitterness at the apex of the swig thatís noticeably sharp, but it fades away as quickly as it appears. I notice some apricot or peach-like flavors on the aftertaste, which are nice, but muted. I also detect a twang or sourness which Iíd attribute to this likely being an old bottle. Itís a fine palette overall, but nothing particularly impressive.

Drinkability: A medium body all around. Mouthfeel isnít too thick, but is far from thin. A good level of carbonation to give it some energy across the tongue. Slightly dry aftertaste, but itís easily tolerable. At only 6.5% ABV it seems rather inefficient and under attenuated.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from the Piggly Wiggly, North Charleston. Time was, you could score some Southampton brews in NC. Since thatís no longer the case, thought Iíd snap this up in my mixed six. Fairly opaque orange pour, with a medium creamy head. Nose of substantial malts, dry and tealike hops, and just a scootch of sugared fruit. Some age on it is detectable in the taste, but thatís less harm to English style IPAs than to Cali hop bombs. Still some traces of fruit and bitterness, and itís a satisfying, unassuming entry.

wlajwl (3745) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2013
Aroma is fruit, malts and very slightly perfumed. The flavor is citrus, malts, mineral water qualities and a mildly nutty/tart finish.

bottle in NY. didnít pour so no idea of appearance. must say though, aroma and taste were pretty disappointing. tasted more like a lager than an IPA.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of light citrus, pine, and caramel. Good hop bitterness of grapefruit rind, wet grass, and pine needles that is balanced with a good amount of caramel malt. Important to note that this is a British-style IPA and I think a very good example of one.
