Looks like ur typical swedish lager but this IPA offers so much more. Pretty bitter with a hint if dill (not kidding) in the taste. Fresh.

Clear golden with medium head. Butterscotch aroma. Dry, bitter taste at first, then some honey tones. Plain and refreshing.

Pretty good for a non lPA lover. Nice appearance. Not too harsh on the palate like other IPAs. Tried this at Park Lane as part of a sampler.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber pour with just a hint of red and a thick head with an excellent lasting lacing. Nice nose of light pine hops, mostly spruce but also a floral note, over a slightly sweet malt background. The body is on the high end of medium with just the right level of carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth and just shy of slick. The flavor profile is quite nice and complex. It begins with caramel sweetness over a light spruce hop flavor, effervesces into a light bitterness with floral notes and finishes a bit tart. The finish itself is a blend of caramel sweetness and hop earthiness that lingers against a light bitterness over a background tartness. An outstanding "twist" on an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I actually thought that this was a fairly decent IPA. Does not hold up to the American hop monsters, but an average drinkable beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange draft at dukes of Perth. Dank wet carpet aroma (not in a bad way - just their style). Orange and cherry notes. Floral slight bitterness. Grew on me towards the end

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
$3.99 for the 500mL bottle purchased from town. To oversized snifter, it pours a honeycomb amber with a sudsy, whitish head 1Ĺ. fingers in length. All bottles were covered in fair amount of dust, so buying this from the aisle in the first place worried me. But, I cleaned it off with a wet rag before popping its lid with a $.99 gas station lighter. Aromas of mildew, kilned malts, celery salt, algae, and leafy herbaceous. Tastes the same only with the addition of American hops, daisies and spent grain by mid-palate. Plastic, soybeans, and mold by swallow. Flavor lingers. I could definitely do without this again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Skunked aroma overpowers the butterscotch and caramel malts (regrettably, a clear bottle). Tastes of butterscotch, caramel, and hops, though the hops arenít especially prominent - just a little hint of bitterness in the finish. Bitter-dry taste explosion, the bottle says, but this is not - just a relatively drinkable, somewhat watery and sweet IPA, which is not among my favorite of the various IPA palates. The Scots arenít too different from their other Western Euro cousins, I suppose - bitter, heavier-bodied IPAs are a uniquely American phenomenon.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very good lasting aroma. From beginning to the last sip. Hazy golden appearance, with some sediment. Thin head, thin lace. A good hoppy taste. Some grass and spices too. Quite long, dry finish.
