330ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of biscuity malt & juicy citrus hop. Taste is similar, biscuit malt and a citrusy hop, earthy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, with a dry lingering bitter finish. Quite OK.

Worth a try but I won’t be picking it up again any time soon. Very, very light, but with plenty of hops for that IPA buzz.

@ Scream pub in glasgow near George Square. Tasted all the better for Aberdeen beating Celtic.

Nilz (345) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle from Aldi pours light yellow ale with a white fairly persistent head. Malty aroma, some citrus. Taste mild bitterness, modest hops. A straightforward ale, nice.

allmyvinyl (2226) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
330ml bottle from Provenance, Edinburgh. Clear gold pour, nice white head. Big hop aromas, touch of butterscotch, but not too much. Taste has a malt backbone behind the big citrus and pine notes. bitter finish, not bad.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured by gravity @ NERAX North cask festival. 11/16/2013 Haverhill, MA. Pale straw color, no head. Nose is light pale malt, citrus hops and bread. Taste is far from an IPA. Flavor mirrors the nose. Lots of bread malt with weak, subtle fruit and citrus notes. Texture is sweet and sticky. Works as American Pale but when I see IPA I am expecting hops and bitterness.This lacks both.

Lovely bottle conditioned ale from Edinburgh. Slightly cloudy, not too citrusy, nice lacing. Quite gorgeous.

Aroma is floral, citrus and sweet. Cloudy golden appearance. Flavour is well balanced with a nice bitterness. The best beer I have tried from Barneys.

Bottle @ home, A little disappointing, i expected a bit more, this was just a little bit to bitter for my liking. While there was some citrus fruit on the palate straight up it needs more.
