COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised. Has been seen on draught.
A refreshing example of an India Pale Ale from the master brewers at Belhaven. The blend of Cascade and Challenger hops combine to produce an abundance of fresh hop aroma that preludes a bitter-dry taste explosion. Crafted from nearly three centuries of brewing heritage at Scotland’s oldest independent brewery, this ale from Belhaven will have your taste buds tingling.
6.1% USA export version. The Europe version is 5.3%.

joejames (249) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours slightly cloudy gold, one finger off white head, some lacing and some retention. Aroma of light citrus and pine. Taste is light bitter, moderately bready sweet. Light bodied, highly carbonated, thin metallic mouth feel. Finishes astringent. Tasting notes of caramel, bread, bitter herbs, yeast and salt. Not all that great.

Underdogs88 (206) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Grapefruit, earthy, spicy hop aroma. Appearance is a crystal clear gold with a small white head that quickly went away. Flavor is blend of grapefruit, fruity and spicy hop flavors. Malt flavor has notes of biscuit and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a decent British ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good IPA with a good flowery bitter note nicely in balance with a light sweetness that I find unusual in an IPA. Should not be drunk too cold. Nice label, too.
