A pale ale with a fusion of bittering hops and a wonderful three hop finish. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Flesje van de brouwerij winkel. Goudoranje, mooie plakkerige kraag. Ruikt bitter grapefruit, smaakt ook zo, mooie balans tussen bitter en zoet. behoorlijk vol bier. Jammer dat ik hier geen krat van heb......

Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear orange golden color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, quite hoppy indeed, lightly tropical fruits, nicely bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice.

Maxbier (253) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Had the draft version. Dark golden pour. Biscuity malty aroma. Starts off caramel malty with very low carbonation then gives way to hoppy earthy finish. Very nice bitter lingering. Very nice Scottish twist on an American style IPA.

Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Malts are light and dry and bring dry cream sweetness. Hops are mildly pine and light orange citrus. Little aniseed before a light semi dry finish. Hangs together fairly well.

Bottle. Hoppy but bit of spice too. Lemon, bit of skunk. Strange. My least favourite of the 5 we had.
