IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

On tap at Scratch Bar 040214. Not bad for a Scottish IPA. Good balance of maltiness and hoppiness.

jamestulloch (1281) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Bottle from Cornelius. Clear golden body with a thick off-white head. Low carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of passionfruit, kiwi fruit, mango, pine and caramel. Flavour is initially sweet - wood and caramel - then pineapple and red apple notes come through in a bitter finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. For me, the 7.4% ABV version is an improvement on the original Brave New World. A great IPA from arguably Scotland’s best brewery.

zimbo (531) - SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2014
Off white ever so slightly yellowish fullush head. Goid deeo new world hop nose. Deep golden body. Bitter hop gorward which is very balabced with dome sweetness. Tadtes New World but with some tight almost juniper Old World bitterness throughout. Light penrtrating bitter end. Bit fizzy but not neatly enough to make a bad impression.

wyzzywyz22 (1945) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Clear dark amber pour with a nice plump, lingering white head. Piney hop, cut grass, kiwi and tropical fruit present in the enticing beak. Sweetish flavour with juicy citrus and more piney hop. Quite subtle and satisfying bitterness. A very drinkable, quality IPA.

minutemat (1387) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
500ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours a browny orange with a decent head reducing to patchy bubbly foam. Exceedingly hoppy with tropical and floral elements and a healthy dose of sweet malts. Quite tasty with a nice bitter finish.

AdiBeer (931) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Aroma: tropical fruits, citrus hops. Appearance: hazy gold, small white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: alcohol, bitters continue lightly, short finish. Overall: nice IPA, alcohol in the palate prevented higher rating. Pint at The White Horse, Parson’s Green.

Osprey87 (1406) - WALES - FEB 3, 2014
Keg at Draft House London. Hazy orange with a big foamy white head. Leaves deep lacing. Smell - big caramel, lots of fresh tropical hops. Body is medium and carbonation fairly low. Taste - caramel malts, lime and kiwi, finishes with salty stock and cabbage (in a good way), dry resin. Big IPA in great condition. Doesn’t have the flavour to match the smell, but a really good easy drinking beer.
