I must first state that I an tasting this not from a bottle, but as a live ale from a cask. With that in mind, at room temperature this beer pours a nearly clear golden amber with no head. The smell is very mild, mostly floral. Tastes of well-balanced hops, citrus, caramel, lemon peel, and with a woody note. Feels like water in your mouth, with a slightly sticky finish that dissipates.

500ml Bottle. Thin head, light gold body. Ultra hoppy, a bit bready. Very nice indeed. Worth mentioning the coolness of the new label design!

Draft, The Sheffield Tap, Sheffield. Medium gold, slightly hoppy aroma. Slightly better than a Sam Adams I think.

robgibbens (419) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Kind of a hazy golden amber. Thin head. Floral aroma, but more like waxy floral with rubber. Hoppy taste, but not very hoppy. Pretty mellow compared to so many hop-bombs these days. Clean finish, refreshing.

jamestulloch (1846) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 Aroma: Shortbread and mild grapefruit. Musty and yeasty.

Appearance: Clear golden/amber body. Small white head that holds quite well. Average carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Tangerine flavour upfront, followed by a woody, biscuity finish. Nice bitterness.

Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation.

Overall: Very tasty, but I’d like to try an unpasteurised version as I think there would be greater depth of flavour. Although it’s good, I prefer the Joker Double IPA to this.

11.02.2012. 0,33l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Bergen - Valkendorfsgate. Labeled "Scottish Joker I.P.A.". Pale golden brown colour with white head. Nice rich malty aroma with aromatic hops. Not as bitter or hopped as I expected from an IPA. Very gentle and mild, almost like a pale ale.
