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

Poured from bottle. Getting more malt than hop in aroma. Good lookin gold with lacing. Floral and citrus hops along with roasts malt and slightly sweet. Not quite as hoppy as other AIPAs, but that’s ok. Feel is crisp and dry. Well done. westknife (80) - New York City, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2016
This is a fuckin delicious IPA. It came in a brown-colored bottle and it was 12 ounces. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Dark gold; big, fluffy head like some kind of meringue. Leaves a thick sheet of lace.
The aroma is heavy wood, with a malt that smells more like a blonde than anything. Some stones, and a hint of broccoli? It’s a curious blend, and yet somehow it works. Cooked vegetables.
The first taste is a curious pebble/mineral flavor. That is followed by an oak flavor; finished wood and pumpernickel bread. There is a residual malt sweetness that sits on the palate; but the malt is not sugary, it’s more like honey, with some cereal grains. As it warms up it gets very earthy.
Thick and creamy like an English ale; surprising amount of carbonation on the tongue. It’s a nice, well-balanced, earthy (only slightly hoppy) English IPA. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Burton IPA is the kind that goes beyond the over-the-top bitterness that you find in most of the style. Hop flavors of floral and slightly fruity shine through the initial bite and linger on the palate after it goes down. Aroma is enjoyable but light. Color is a light amber. Burton IPA is great to add to the usual rotation and a standout among the sea of IPAs.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice sweet hop note to it with grapefruit goodness within. Not a real big malt characteristic but the fruity hops is good enough for me. Appearance is a golden color with just a hint of amber hue and a large white head that lingers. Taste is really nice and balanced nice up front hop punch with a more subtle malt coming through and the backing. Palate has got a lingering pine note from the hops and a little bit of the malt. Overall, Really balanced and well made brew in my honest opinion. Cheers! Slipstream (2677) - USA - JUL 2, 2012
Draft at The Pony Bar. The balance leans a bit toward sweetness, but with a drying hop finish. This is a very pleasant English-style IPA - I’m glad I got some fresh. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2012
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. dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Pours a nice amber copper with small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, slight citrus, and solid caramel malt. Flavor matches well with a great balance and a very slight mineral metallic taste very late in the aftertaste. Very solid offering and quite happy that I picked it up. superspak (5880) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 5/23/2013. Pours slightly cloudy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, grapefruit, pear, floral, caramel, toast, bread, grass, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop and malt notes; with fairly weak strength. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, floral, pine, grass, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, light fruit, caramel, brown bread, toast, pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of hop and malt flavors with light yeast fruitiness; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good English IPA style. Nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
