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.

Broughton Ales, Main Street Broughton Village, Biggar, Scotland Beer: 6.2 I.P.A. Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) ALC.VOL.: 6.2% "A New IPA-chestnut brown with a fruity aroma and delicious hoppy aftertaste." Colour: Deep amber, clear, medium but lasting creamy white head. Nose: Grassy, some citrus, floral, herbal, a bit of grapefruit. Texture: Full-bodied. A bit oily. Medium carbonation. Taste: Hoppy and very bitter up front. Herbal and floral notes, with malty background. Teensy bit of citrus, not much else on the fruit front. Wee creamy, too - especially towards the middle. Hoppy bitterness persists throughout into the finish. Herbal and floral notes, too. Long-lasting, bitter and slightly floral aftertaste. No fruit remains. Impressions: This is a beer with a capital H for hops and a capital B for bitter. Somehwere between a premium bitter and an English IPA. Very flavourful, the alcohol is skillfully obscured by the bitterness and the floral and malty notes. Truly an excellent beer!

Bottle, KØ15. Pours clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with buttery and hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour, wit notes of malt and butter and touches of yeast and needles. Bitter aftertaste. Drinkable but would be much better without the buttery notes.
