Delicious chestnut brown colour with a beautiful aroma of spicy fruit, melon and wood. Really smooth and easy drinking with a lot of bitterness. Absolutely stunning.

AshtonMcCobb (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2014
On cask at the Cafe Royal. Appearance - golden to amber with a proportional head. Nose - a bit elusive but some citrus and sweet malt in there. Taste - lime marmalade and then astringent malt. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy and a dry astringent finish. Also a dominant alcohol note. Overall - bitterness comes from malt as well as hops. For ipa style would expect it to be more hoppy and for the malt to sweet and balancing. Makes me think more of "old ale" style to be honest.

Cask at Counting House JDW, Glasgow. Murky, muddy brown pour, nearly took it back, but it tasted fine so we didn’t. Good citrus hop presence, oranges and caramel. Bitter taste, clean finish. Not a looker, but a good beer.

Pours dark amber. Spices on the nose like a Christmas beer. Hoppy, deep hoppy after taste, bitter with grapefruit coming through.

tombyars (1316) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in March 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale amber in colour with a thin white loose head. Strong note of dusty hop resins, long in the nose. Thick resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Substantial pale malt base gives gives a strong maltloaf base with lashings of sweet golden syrup full in the mouth. Rich earthy hop resins are fully present in the strong intense aftertaste which builds in the palate. Finish is malty with a sweet barley sugar note which soons gives away to a warming alcoholic burr. Dry oak cask flavour introuces a dry bitter whack right at the very end. A decent Imperial IPA from a decent brewery.

SaintMatty (4677) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2013
Cask (SRAF 2013) - Amber in colour. Grapefruit, toffee and peach in the aroma. Hoppy, tangy and moderately sweet taste with notes of grapefruit, peach and lychees.

Stuartyboy (433) - SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2013
On tap at counting house jdw Glasgow clear orange beer with significant sweetness and flavour of citrus fruit especially orange also sweet toffee prominant more reminiscent of a scotch ale than an ipa but still very pleasant

Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Orange amber brown colour, reasonable head. Creamy hoppy malt aroma. Bitter resin hop flavour. Sickly sweet & sour cinnamon aftertaste. A hybrid between an IPA and bitter. This is what you get when traditional breweries try to brew modern trendy beers. Doesn’t work for me.
