23.10.2014. Hazy orange brownish, plenty of head. Hoppy aroma with fruits, wet wood, orange. Decent malts, orange citric hops. Quite good balance, a bit to the sweet side. Both aroma and taste has slight soap or bubblegum. Better than average.

androman (801) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Shared bottle @ home from appellation Wines Edinburgh. Body is hazy orange copper, head is small white creamy, mostly diminishing good lacing. Nose is grass, aroma is roasted peanuts, orange peel, light licorice, spices. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting hoppy bitter. Medium to full body, slightly sticky texture, lively carbonation. Great refreshing strong hoppy beer.

AshtonMcCobb (3670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden amber and very lively which means a big fluffy head too. Nose - pine, mango and lime. Each individually distinguishable. Taste - pink grapefruit and resin, then the lime follows it through. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet drying texture and a long dry finish. Overall - brave to bottle condition but it’s paid off beautifully.

StuartC (56) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Hazy copper-orange with thin very-white head. Aromas of Double-Dip-Swizzle-Stick, orange sherbet and tarragon; Creamy smoothness with a light, barely perceptible fizz; Notes of oily Brazil nuts initially, but quickly joined by soft leafy herbs; The freshness doesn’t last long, as bitter grapefruit really develops through the finish, doesn’t overwhelm as accompanied by lemon zestiness and ground coriander seed. An IPA with the soft herbal tones to entice those not normally fans of IPAs, but with the bitterness on the finish to enthral those who do!

[6702-20140826] Bottle. Mildly fruity wood pine aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter fruity hops flavour has a strange evergreen toast note. Medium body is quite bitter. Tasty. (7/4/8/4/16) 3.9-

zimbo (739) - SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Heard some guy on you tube say this was Scotland’s greatest IPA. Nope. Not even close. It has some nice hoppy aroma and a reasonable balancing sweetness but its overly acidic, dusty and lacking in structure. Not much joy there. But way below a contender for greatness.
