3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

500ml bottle from the Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours pale gold, light haze, long-lasting white head. Aromas of over-ripe fruit, light sourness, cooked oranges. Taste is sweet and lightly sour, bitter at the end. Something chalky too. Odd.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Easy going, subtle and pleasing. Not too dry. Well balanced Malt/hop. Good water quality.
Don’t expect to get thumped around the head with hops as it’s a lot more of a light session ale than an IPA.

Was looking forward to this. The sink had more than I did. Far too mild for an IPA, and a rather off-putting taste: so much so that I wondered if it had skunked. Gives you that "water-belly" feeling.
