This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Leuchtend Gelb, leicht trüb, nur wenig schaum, wunderbarer hopfengeruch, schön hopfig fruchtig, annehme bittere Gegen Ende hin. Leider etwas "leicht", vielleicht aber auch nicht mehr ganz frisch.

Review day after drinking. I remember this being very pleasant and drinkable. Hop forward and highly carbonated, it was very tasty.

Bottle, pours golden with an off white head, strong aroma of grapefruit with a hint of pine, bitter citrus taste with a hint of caramel, long bitter finish, nicely balanced and easy to drink

Golden color with white head. Floral hop aroma with tropical fruit aroma too. Not a balanced beer but who cares. Loads of grassy hops flavors some pine and some tropical fruits. Compared to and English bitter this Scottish IPA is a welcome punch in the face. Terrific linger bitter finish.

Flaska från Systembolaget - ljus och klar med vitt skum. Doftar inte så mycket men har en svag beska men en tydlig syrlig humlesmak. Len i kroppen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 330ml. A golden beer with a small white head. It has a strong floral aroma with grapefruit and citrics (especially lime). Taste is bitter and well balanced. There is some carbonation and astringency. Strong hop character . A good beer from my favorite brewery.

Really THE IPA on the market. Fruity, nHoppy, Round Body a mouthful of diffrent tastes while drinking. If you havent tried this one you havent tried any IPA.

One very beautiful IPA, the fruitiness of the nelson sauvin and the resiny feel of the simcoe goes wonderfully together in one true expression of this beer style, this beer is famous for a reason

Taste of orange peel and fruits, and a little lingering metallic taste. Quite an amazing tasting IPA though overall, quite smooth with an agreeable bitter after taste. Really liked it and was amazed it’s brewed in Scotland (as I thought it was a locally brewed drop), and I see it uses Nelson Sauvin hops in its ingredients (a Kiwi connection?) and it certainly has that zesty hoppy flavour only sourced from those parts. Nice, real nice.
