Hops don’t get wilder than this! The positively manicAmerican hop combination leads the normally restrained East Kent Goldings and Fuggles on a wild hoppy taste journey!

Sort of a Euro continental nose which is rather underwelming and a golden sparkle virtually devoid of beading. Starts dry with an almost rubbery bitterness at the end. bit of an identity crises here. Though an IPA it comes across as a sort of continental bitter pilsner.

SarkyNorthener (2557) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle thanks to parents in law from visit to Scotland. Golden beer with small head. Aroma of peaches and floral hops. Taste is a little pine resin, peach and flower petals. Different tasting beer. Decent.

SaintMatty (5648) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2014
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Floral hops, biscuity malt and notes of peach in the aroma. Peach, golden syrup, grapefruit and some earthy notes can be detected in the taste. Solid, yet unspectacular.

Hoptoc (2) - SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014 does not count
"Wild" is correct in comparison to Bitter and Twisted, but not outrageously hoppy. Earthy and lemony flavours, aroma a bit dull, but overall a very solid IPA from Harviestoun.

jd543 (413) - SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Golden with a medium white head. Medium malty aroma, bit of eathy hops. Taste is light sweet with a bitter finish, medium-long duration. Oily texture, soft carbonation. Pretty average golden ale to be honest. Given the name I was hopiing for something with a much bigger hop-kick.
