tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Tasted this in the Crystal Palace, Glasgow (JDW) on 31st January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby in colour with a thin white head. Strong fruity aroma, long in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Mixed malts give a rich fruity maltloaf base with flavours of pink grapefruit, lychees and passion fruit juicy in the mouth. Short nod to the hop resins in the floral aftertaste which fades rather fast giving a quick bitter note. Finish is malty and full of juicy fruit with pomegranate, blood orange and oak cask notes in the mouth. This is a decent American IPA in style and well recommended.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pours amber with a hint of red. Both grassy and lemon on the nose with a herbal slightly floral kick on the palate. Good not great but very pleasant, I’d be chuffed to find it at the end of an Autumn walk.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
Hal pint, cask by handpump at Standing Order. Off-white head blanketing the glass. Near-clear copper coloured body. Marmalade nose. Dried fruity taste with malty sweetness, jam-like. Malt-fruity, mid-bitter ending. Rather heavy to drink, but satisfying (Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Cask at Holyrood 9A, Edinburgh, Scotland. Golden red body, sharp hop aroma, citrusy on the tongue, sharp hop with floral highlights and a smooth malty finish. Nice!

Stuartyboy (713) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2013
On cask at Stockbridge tap citrus hop aroma stong taste of orange peel ripe fruit and hops a bit watery and not as flavoursome as the premium ipa style should be

JohnRMurdoch (3398) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2013
Cask @ Bon Accord. Orange brown, good head. Fruity resin aroma. Complex dry orange biscuit & resin flavour. Smooth creamy texture with bitter sweet aftertaste. Quite unusual & not bad. Probably best so far from this local brewery.
