On tap at Bonnaroo. Poured a copper orange. Aroma was light but hoppy. Flavor was surprisingly smooth for an IPA. Not too bitter. Good balance.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This Scottish Ale pours a medium amber color from the tap at the brewpub. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is mild malts with some breadiness. A light bodied Scottish Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet, touch of smoke. The hops are earthy. It a really light bodied Scottish ale, but I guess it was brewed that way. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

pours a pleasent golden colour, with a fluffy and bitter head. the taste does indeed start off with a touch of sweetness and ends crisp with a lemon like hop taste.

On draft at the brewpub. Golden with amber hues and a nice big white head. Citrus and pine aromas. A nice malty backbone in the flavor to balance the hops. Pretty good brewpub IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap - Having had this beer several times over the years, is can go either way. This brewery does not make consistent beer. Pours into an deep orange color with a small frothy head. Piney hop aromas, with a pretty well balanced malt backbone, just not a very strong one, which is fine because the ops are not at present overwhelming. Finishes really thin, and does not leave me wanting more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on draught at the Capitol City Carnival 2007. Pours to a slightly hazy, deep golden to orange color, with a soapy, white head, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is fragrant with good piney and citus hops, with some sweet malty aroma as well. The palate is slick and a touch buttery, with flavors of pale and caramel, malt, and a touch of toffee. This beer finishes with more good sweet and caramel malt flavors, then ends with some nice piney and citrus hop bitteness, that slightly lingers. All and all a good example of AIPA. Nice hop aromas, good malt flavor, and good hop bitterness. I enjoyed this one, and think I would like this one on draught at the brewpub with a nice slice of pizza.
