Pale golden color, no head as this is a still beverage. Definitely taste the scotch but perhaps almost too much. It tastes like a watered down islay scotch.

Wasnít exactly what I expected. Donít care for the flavor of this one but to each their own. Do not like the smokiness background of it. Had much better from brew dog.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best before 2/2/10 Pours a lightly cloudy weird brownish color. Aroma is watered down whisky. Taste is whisky. Like watered down Johnnie Walker Green. Light bodied with a thin watery texture. Zero carbonation and a long finish. Overall, wow. This is not beer at all, but watery whisky. Not sure what to think about it other than Iím pretty sure I like it.

jsmerig (1437) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Pours a light cloudy yellow. Aroma is strong with single malt scotch overtones. Taste is minutely sweet in the front quickly overpowered by the smokey and stinging scotch flavors. The finish shows the ABV through some subtle burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Bottle from Brewdog.com. The first time I had this, I was utterly confused and horrified. After a while though, I grew to quite like, I think if the base was hardcore it could have been pretty special.

reebtogi (5359) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild pine and hints of oak and whiskey. Taste is malty sweet with some piney hop bitterness as well as some oak and whiskey. Does not quite taste like a traditional IPA, but who cares, this is quite a tasty beer.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods. Cloudy gold pour with a neglible white head leaving no lace. Nose is ripe fruit and peat. Medium body with light carbonation. Smoked peat, apple, pear, tobacco, walnuts and oak. Finish is lighter, shortish, smoky, bitter and umami. This is the ale that YBís Rex Attitude would be if it were more balanced. A scotch ale for those who donít really drink scotch. I like it, but itís not an IPA by any stretch.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle from iron abbey beer dinner. This was advertised as "hard to get" but I donít understand why. The aroma has some spice notes, but it reminds me of a watered down whiskey. This is not good. As a side note, the word I was looking to describe this was creosote.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Poured into Delirium Tulip. Didnít see the expiration date, so a couple months past prime. No head to speak of. Some small lacing. The smell is like straight scotch whiskey. The whiskey balances the hops, and leaves a funky yet watery smell. I donít get this beer at all lol.

jstraw (1953) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle says "Best Before 02/10". Oops / No head / Big, dramatic, nose of scotch and wood / Medium body, mellow with no carbonation, malty and fruity but astringent, with dry, bitter, finish / Flavors of scotch barrel, smoke, peat, and apple cider / A contrary view - very odd, but I enjoyed it. I would not expect an ipa to age well, but this one did. BrewDog is never dull. If you are the type that has a difficult time explaining to friends why "manure" is a desirable flavor in beer, this might be worth checking out.
