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.

Graham77 (247) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Nose of sweet caramel and flavour similarly sweet but with a strong hop balance. Citrus and slightly piney hops but by no means overly bitter. Moderate carbonation. Lovely IPA.

Pint in ’Spoons Hawick. Good clear burned gold colour, long lasting thin white head. Good malty/ hoppy nose, full bodied, the malt n hops are well represented flavourwise as well. A lovely pint!

Bottle. Simultaneously too sweet and too bitter. No balance between moderan hops and an oldfashioned malt bill. Obviously this is Broughton’s foray into a modern style but they have have missed the mark with this.

AshtonMcCobb (2715) - 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.

allmyvinyl (3732) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2014
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.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pours dark amber. Spices on the nose like a Christmas beer. Hoppy, deep hoppy after taste, bitter with grapefruit coming through.

tombyars (1389) - 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.

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.
