2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour was light golden with a white smooth head. Aroma was of tropical fruit and some slight oxidation. Flavor was very bitter, but in a pine tree sort of way. I loved the American bitterness imparted on this Scottish brew, but the bitterness was quite harsh, whereas many other IPAs I’ve had kept the smooth bitterness accompanying the nice malt characters. This could be a great beer if the bitterness could be much smoother.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dirty hazy light blonde. Hop sweet jam and Skunky nose. Neat sweet gummy citrus. Biting and spirited light malt. Finishes itchy and cooling. I prefer the popping citra nose in the new version but I can still get off on the bite here so hopefully memory-banked this accordingly score-wise.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours cloudy lemon yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of skunky hops. Taste is bitter, watery. Thin texture, thin body. bitter finish, thanks again Craig for a beer I didn’t think I’d see again!

Bottle. I didn’t know what to make of this beer, it didn’t have the hoppness I was expecting. Nice, but just unusual.

Ik ben sowieso al geen te grote fan van IPA en dit was echt een van de slechtste die ik al geprobeerd heb.

Bottle. Had this back when I was getting into the style and it was a nice starter of an IPA. Good amount of bread and caramel backbone, was really well balanced with the hoppy floral flavour. The bitterness was well balanced and nothing to pucker your face at. An all around good and balanced IPA.
