COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true Indian Pale Ale with an amber lager colour and an ability to drink so easily. Has a wee hoppy & bitter bite but smoothed out with caramel and malt on the finish. Lovely all on its own or with supper.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Tasted this in Cuan Mor, Oban in June 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale amber with a thin white head. Peppery note in the herbal aroma but short lived. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a ginger bread base with hints of orange oil, barley sugar and coriander. Spicy hop prickle present in the short aftertaste. Malty finish with hints of ginger beer and aromatic herbs. An ok IPA but really lacking body for that catagory.
