Fondly known as “Yellowcap”, Scraggy Bay is a balanced coppery ale with a snappy little bite of hops.

Draught. Pours a blood orange colour with a small non-lasting white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, honey. Taste of citrus, clove, brown sugar. Oily texture, medium carbonation.

Bottle from the excellent Blackrock Cellar. A proper IPA...good sour notes to taste. Strength and depth without being overpowering. Loved it !

Derevcel (2) - Derry, IRELAND - MAR 8, 2015 does not count
Beautiful on draught or bottle conditioned. Hazy orange with tight white head _ maybe some wheat malt there? Lovely pink grapefruit or blood orange and nettle (pine?) on the nose. More grapefruit, hops, and fairly strong malt on the tongue and a dry, grapefruit, hoppy finish. Saved the last quarter bottle and tried it with the yeast. More mellow citrus flavour with digestive biscuit from the malt. Finish softer if anything. A thing of beauty!

500ml bottle from Reills Lisnaskea, Ł2.50:
This one was a very nice American style IPA, particularly as it comes from an Irish brewery and came out a lot better than I was expecting. Thankfully the beer was quite bitter with a lot of grapefruit and citrus flavours, some pine helping add to this as well. Overall this one was quite an enjoyable offering and one that I wouldn’t mind picking up again.

Decent craft irish India Pale Ale. Peachy and hazy. Ends with bitter aftertaste.

mR_fr0g (4524) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to big bro. Hazed light golden orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy hop with a little hay. Bit dirty on the nose. Flavour is semi crisp, dirty grassy hop and a little hedgerow berry. Palate is medium light bodied with highish carbonation. Decent.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2014
Pours slightly cloudy with a fairly solid head. Clear hoppy aroma and a crisp bitterness. Not bad, but not exactly a session beer.
