Intriguing aroma with a taste of hops, malt and almost subtle spices, with a mildly lingering mouthfeel. ---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: Im 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. Theres a burst of hop bitterness at the apex of the swig thats 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 Id attribute to this likely being an old bottle. Its a fine palette overall, but nothing particularly impressive.

Drinkability: A medium body all around. Mouthfeel isnt too thick, but is far from thin. A good level of carbonation to give it some energy across the tongue. Slightly dry aftertaste, but its 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 thats no longer the case, thought Id 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 thats less harm to English style IPAs than to Cali hop bombs. Still some traces of fruit and bitterness, and its a satisfying, unassuming entry.

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. didnt 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.

Burnished golden color with a frothy off white head. Light malty nose with some earthy hops. This lives up to the English IPA label. The US sure has mutated this style. Malty sweetness with some chalk and toast with a strong hop pellet bitterness.

DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange-amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel notes, floral and slightly citric notes and some minerals. Flavor has a bit of malt sweetness, slightly caramelly and biscuity , minerally notes and pleasant hoppy bitterness, kinda floral and citric. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2013
From bottle. Pours amber red in color with small white head. Aroma was sweet with citrus and floral hop nose. Taste is a little sweet for my liking and not exactly a English IPA.
