one of Scotlands top beers. more easy to find on the East coast than the West as a draught but nationally available in bottles. Canned variety probably not quite so good.

Having bought the case for a tenner, spent last night at a party having a session of them. Hop flowers to the fore with a zingy citrus note. The whole thing is very drying to the palate into the 4th/5th bottle, leaving you wishing for sweetness. Better in cask than pasteurised, but note, no hangover.

Aroma: Hops: Medium-light,Musty, earthy hops, Malt: Light caramel, biscuit
Appearance: Clear, light copper body. Medium, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention.
Flavour: Malt: Light Caramel. Hops: medium-light earthy/musty. Well balanced, slightly towards malty sweetness initially, but then gives a hoppy/bitterness in the finish. Dry finish. Orange zest
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Dry finish
Overall: A flavourful IPA, without the aggressive, over the top hops or bitterness. Very enjoyable. Something to drink in large volumes.
500ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

Not as aggressively hopped as a USIPA but fair amount of citrus and grapefruit in the finish. Doesn’t bite, goes down fairly smoothly. A Scottish/Cask brewed alternative. Top class in its own right as Scotland doesn’t need a crisp bitter biting thirst quenching USIPA.

A top quality IPA - lots of initial hops that give way to a balance with maltiness. Long and rather tart finish.

From the bottle come this surprisingly splendid bronze brew with a dry lightly scented raspberry aroma and a mild peach hop aftertaste. It’s better than you think.

500ml Bottle from B&M. Served cool. Pours dark gold and clear with a thin white head. Muscavado in the aroma. Taste is bitter and refreshing. I get citrus and a piney resin note, and some astrigency in the finish. I find it quite moreish. ABV suits the style, the alcohol is present, but not overwhelming, I would happily while away a summer afternoon with a few of these.

Dobre IPA ze Szkocji. Aromatyczne pachnace roznymi chmielami. Piana najpierw ladnie sie tworzy lecz wyksztalca sie srednia i szybko opada. Kolor zloty. Chmielny aromat tego szkockiego piwa jest dosc wyrazny, w degustacji dominuje takze chmiel oraz posmak skoszonej i zasuszonej trawy.
