3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
poured from imported 500ml bottle (little past freshness date) - Damn, nice second offering from the brothers over there in Scotland. High pine, citrus, and a tad dark fruit in there. Definitely drier than your average American ipa. "Not bad!" were the first words out of my mouth upon first taste. Lots of flavor for a relatively low-alcohol ipa. I’d drink again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Bishops Folkunga, named Scottish Joker I.P.A.
Clear golden with a sort bubbly cask like head.
Caramel, butter, oranges, apricots and flowers on the nose.
Quite much the same in the taste with a grassy bitter end.
Medium to slight thinner body with soft tickling carbonation and some watery notes.
A quite good refreshing british IPA I wouldn’t mind having as a regular on cask.

Small medium vast white head on top of a clear yellow colored beer.
Smell hops, citrus, floral and hints of yeast and fruit.
Taste is a really different but still appealing one: hops, malts, caramel, spices, hint of something light liquorice/chocolate alike.
Low bitter low malty but fine aftertaste.
Low carbo, medium body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture.
Different but nice ipa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of piney hops. The piney hops continue on in the taste and it is lighter than I was expecting. Also, the hop bitterness is much less than most of todays American IPAs. I enjoyed that it is light and easy to drink.
