COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPAs are more highly hopped and a bit stronger than traditional pale ales. There are two distinct styles - English and American. English IPAs tend to be more subtle and a bit maltier while American IPAs have a bolder hop character.
Southampton brewmaster Phil Markowski has combined the best of both styles in his IPA. He’s crafted an ale with the bold citrusy hop character of an American IPA and the maltier, more refined flavor of an English IPA. Although the defining characteristic of Southampton IPA is balance, its incredible blend of three American and two British hop varieties is sure to please any hophead!

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2005
22 oz bomber. Clear ourange with a light head, some lacing. Floral aroma with some grapefruit. Damn, what a nice beer. Smooth mouthfeel with just the right amount of bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter. Great IPA. Sure glad Southampton is now available in VA!

Tonkun (610) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Tap. Hazy yellow orange pour with half a finger of white head. Brown sugar, orange peel, herb, grass, pineapple. Medium sugary body with decent carbonation and slight bitterness. Not sure of the effort...

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. pours amber with a small whiteish head. Nose is light citrus, earth, lots of English malt, light diacetyl. Flavor is similar. Was pretty disappointed with this considering how fresh and delicious the Keller pils was.

umich03jm (1589) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color with almost no head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy, very grassy and floral, light apricot. Some caramel malt is there too. Taste is very dry grassy hops and it seems a bit stale. Not sure how old the bottle is. Fizzy carbonation makes the mouthfeel pretty bad. Floral aftertaste. Not a big fan of this.

conway (1131) - - APR 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with no head. Appeared to be flat. Thinking this one is old. Nose is floral and bready with caramel notes. Taste is strong malt, with caramel and toffee notes. Hops seem to impart some fruity notes but there's no bite. If this bottle isn't out of date than than this is terribly unbalanced. Based on other ratings I'll assume that's not the case and seek it out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

firefly765 (85) - - APR 17, 2013
Pours a golden amber unfiltered with lots of hop residue. Nice sent of apricot and grapefruit. Minimal off-white head. Nice Malt to hop balance. Very drinkable but unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bricks (558) - Delaware, USA - APR 6, 2013
Apparently my bottle had been in the beer store for quite a while, as evidenced by the lack of head and tons of floating yeast. Smells malty, not much hop. Taste not very distinctive, but balanced... no doubt has taken a hit from the length of time in the fridge. Smooth, seems a little thin.

Aniela (2302) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Clear amber beer with a big offwhite head. Malty, hoppy and brown sugar aroma and similar flavour.

hfmejias (618) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Poured Cooper with a light white head, strong caramel aroma and taste, more malty than hoppy... Sweet taste, easy to drink.

boxofrane (1887) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours copper with a small white head that dissipates to a film quickly. Aroma is mostly citrus with a few light hop notes. Not the most inviting. The taste is citrus forward with a light bitterness. This seems more like a middle of the road APA than IPA.
