Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Keg at the Lyric. It pours clear orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, resin, peach, mango and apricot. The taste is crisp, bitter orange, sherbet, minerals, light alcohol, straw, peppery, grapefruit and some passion fruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Clean, crisp and very well balanced. Very nice indeed.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Keg at The Small Bar, Bristol. Amber with white head. There is a goodly amount of hops going on with this, drying, lime like, citrus and bitter. Some teeth coating acidity, pleasant herby notes. Very decent.

Orange. General citrus fruits, some more orange, a touch of bitterness from the hops and then some more Orange. It might sound not quite right but it was lovely.

Keg @ Inn Deep. Hazy orange brown, not much head. Mild resin hop aroma. Bitter sweet candy grapefruit flavour. Citrus aftertaste. A good Scottish take on American IPA.

[keg at Stockbridge Tap] Pours a hazy golden orange colour, with a decent white head. Aroma is bitter, pithy orange zest, which follows through into the flavour. Bittersweet orange finish, plenty of fruit in there, alongside maybe a touch of pine? Love the orange flavour though, great work [20102013]

On keg @ the Stockbridge Tap. Highland’s first keg beer. Appearance - golden carbonated and a thin head. Nose - somewhere between oranges and grapefruit, maybe blood orange is closer than pink grapefruit. Taste - definitely oranges, perhaps burnt Seville oranges. It tastes like there has been a lot of late-hopping here. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. However, some sweetness does return. Overall - Lewis, this is very good, it’s also distinctly different than your cask beers, without the big yeast influence you get in cask beer, the hops are fruitier rather than green and floral. To be slightly controversial, it’s probably less ’Highland’. I also think you could up the IBUs in this one, to counteract the extra alcohol sweetness. Then it would be dangerously drinkable. I didn’t take the advice of taking a half pint, it seemed wrong.

Keg at Holyrood 9A. Pours a clear orange-amber with a good white head. Big hop aromas, orange, pine. Some caramel in the background. Taste has lots more orange bitterness, and some malt sweet for balance, but just edges towards too much orangey bitterness. A minor quibble though, in an otherwise very nice beer.
