COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Scottish version of an English IPA. Unfiltered with a nice malt backbone and a variety of English hops. Balanced with nice hop character.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Something Olde Burnside rarely does - bottle their beer. The pour is a very milky looking pale yellow with a white fizzy head that dissolves. Interesting aroma of butterscotch and bread. Even if this was an English IPA I get very little if any hop character. Light to medium body. The taste is more caramel malts and buttery but the hop bitterness seems to be played down.

Not the best offering from Olde Burnside Iím afraid. Iím guessing that someone at the brewery decided to jump into the IPA game and didnít really know what they were doing. Trying to achieve an English IPA with some citrus hops but maintaining a solid malt backbone, not really achieving any balance.

Pours hazy amber/brown. Smells of citrus, some sweet malt. Tastes of malt, light spice, resiny, earthy. Unbalanced.

murky tangerine, puffy white head, thick and consistent. Nose is hay and butter. Flavor bitter, heavy grain and paper. Overly bitter, tasting old.

Slightly cloudy. Bright, lightly hoppy nose. More floral than pine. Estery English ale and hoppy. As advertised.

rocbyter (1896) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Moderate hop aroma with strong sour malt in the end. Cloudy dark orange color with a medium off white head. Sour flavor in the beginning that fades slightly in the finish. Ending develops a light hop bitter flavor.

Pour from a 64 oz growler into a tulip glass. No description on the label. A - Clear, dark golden amber body with a one finger off-white soapy head. Decent lacing and retention. S - Super english. Bready malts with some toffee and caramel followed by some piney hops. A touch of warming alcohol and citrus. T - Follows the nose. Starts off with some bready and caramel malts and finishes with lightly bitter and citrusy hops. Some lingering grass notes. Medium bodied with a low level of carbonation. Easy drinking. O - A fairly average english IPA. Its solid but it fails to really stand out, which actually isnít a terrible thing for the style. There is a few articles out there saying this may be seeing a smaller format bottle. I would have a hard time choosing this over the superior BBC english IPAís that are available though.
