3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
15/08 0.5 l bottle as Scottish Joker IPA, courtesy of ogivlado, thanks for sharing! It pours golden body with smaller head. Fine orange and herbal hops make it’s aroma. Flavor is fine biscuit malty, where herbal hops are pushed in the background. Medium bodied with fine hoppy finish rounded with fine biscuit malt. For a British IPA it’s quite fine, though misses some hops and a more distinct bitterness. Nice one anyway.

As the Scottish Joker IPA, thanks ogivlado! POured a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma hops in the nose, light (illegible), some maltiness. Ok. Salty taste, some lemony aroma hop, very light bitterness. Ok overall, but nothing special.

This was a pretty smooth IPA. Good pine and woodsy flavors, not too overpowering.
