Clear amber beer, white head. Sour hoppy aroma. Sour, fruity hop taste. A bit too sour for my taste for an IPA. Would have helped if it was cooler.

Big white head doesnít last. Clear coppery body. Fruity funky candy aroma with plastic notes. Dryish fruity plastic taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry fruity herbal plastic aftertaste with floral spicy notes. Itís not bad, but the plastic kind of ruins it. (0.5l bottle, odd bins, Edinburgh.)

330ml can from trade with AshtonMccobb. Many thanks! Pours lightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Fresh fruity nose. Taste is bright, hoppy with a bristling bitterness. Expected more of a yeast element, the bitterness taking the reigns a fair bit but itís nice.

Can at Southern, Edinburgh, Saturday 19th March 2016 in the company of Dad and Barry. Mid amber with a film of islands once the head settled (which was quite quickly). Yeast is assertive but not too aggressive, nicely bitter, fruity with a good furry, hoppy tongue rub, like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

330ml bottle from Beer52 website (£1.62):
I had high hopes for this but it was a slight let down & one I had to take my time with. It had some tropical fruits & fresh, citrus flavours but the sweetness of the beer soon took over & seemed to dominate proceedings from the middle onwards giving the beer an unbalanced feel. The finish was overly bitter & it probably seemed closer to a Belgian IPA than an American pale ale; not one that Iíd recommend.

Bottle as a Christmas gift from Jill. Cheers! Pours hazy amber with a cream head. Pleasant tropucal aroma with pineapple especially. The taste has light spice and caramel to begin with before a lingering bitter pine finish. Some earthy yeast notes run through it. Thereís a touch of soap too, but itís still pretty good.

Interesting brew. Tangy but smooth. Hoppy and aniseed. I like it. Like a raging bitch but not as intense. Pretty good.

God this is good. Lots of floral stuff on the nose.Pours gold and slightly hazy, a nice tight head which persists well. Nice balance of hops, yeast, bitterness, some citrus. I could drink a lot of this.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2015 WOW. Bottle. Poured into Leffe chalice . Deep amber with haze. Orange and slight doughy sour to compliment any sweetness. Cracker. Hats off to James Hardacre and Stewart Brewing . My favourite beer for moment. Waited a while to try it do will rerate rest of bottles in case this is just after the wait! Proud to say this is Scottish. A cracker. ....added 28/12/15. So well rounded and balanced . So easily drunk.
