"...the IPA is a truly refreshing ale that is ideal for a session...hint of citrus amongst all the malt and hops flavour in this IPA... only use the finest Hebridean water with malts, hops and yeast..."

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
500ml bottle brought back by my father from a trip to the Hebrides. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 23rd June 2016. Light amber body, clean and clear: the head a white blanket of smooth foam. Light malts rule the nose and flavour, but only just, citrusy and bittering hops are just below the surface and help to make this a pleasant and easy drinking IPA.

johndoughty (4996) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle. Golden with a clear appearance and a small head. Some pleasant hoppiness but lacks body. Cant really see it as an IPA-more like a pretty weak bitter. Not one to search out.

themightyjag (444) - - AUG 23, 2015
500ml bottle from Dobbies farm shop. Big bubbly white head settles quickly, good lacing. Slightly hazy amber body. Sweet malty nose, hint of lime. Flavour is bready, biscuit, a little lime, unusual aftertaste. Good mouthfeel, full with medium carbonation. Quite pleasant.

MrHangover (4001) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle @ THT February. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma of no hops at all, slight malty presence is there. Flavor has no bitterness, no hops, just a watery malty mess. Could be a very old bottle off course, otherwise this is no way near an IPA.
