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

12 oz. bottle from Prost Beer and Wine, paid $1.75. Date on the bottle reads 8/7/2015, yet not stating if itís best by or bottle on. Massively over-carbonated, like it had to sit a good 4 minutes after 6 oz of beer was poured. Aroma is odd. Thickly. Read malts with floral hops and pepper / spice.

The flavor is a mild abrasive floral note in a watery texture. The floral hops are out of balance. Itís almost like drinking some kind of herbal extract. This is very unpleasant. After 3 oz this brew hit the bottom of the sink drain. After its all said and done Iím guessing the date of 8/ 2015 was best by.

12 oz. bottle - very disappointing. I would never have guessed that this was intended to be an English IPA style. Iíve enjoyed a few other Olde Burnside products but this one had no taste appeal at all and no resemblance to other English style IPAís Iíve tasted.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of some floral and lightly citrusy hops, pale and caramel malts, and some toast/bread. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. A decent beer.

12oz bottle. Pours retaining offwhite head with lacing-gold. A-floral, bready-lt malt. T-floral/herbal/spice hops with some bite, bready-lt malt. A slight sweetness comes out midpalate as it gets towrds cellar temp.

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.

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.
