A bit grainy-malty, some sweetness. Floral hops. Quite drinkable and ok, but nothing too extraordinary. Somewhat of the classic Scottish candy/toffee malts is there, but not that much. Nice drink, but easily forgettable.

chinchill (4202) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2016
500 ml bottle in Oban Scotland. BB date of 1/2018. Clear golden body with a generous, durable foamy head. Nice lacing. Excellent smooth feel with lively but soft carbonation. Plenty of hops in the aroma. These are more subdued in the flavor. Mild bitterness. Overall: one of the best U.K. IPA’s I’ve tried.

JoTheO (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle from Coop. Wickedly hoppy it is not. Easy drinking with some light malty notes and some hops, but that’s it, really. Some bitter and sweet notes in the aftertaste.

It’s a nice easy drink, Joker. It’s not too complicated, it’s light and it’s fizzy. Not overly hoppy and has a mild bitter taste. It’s a go to bottle in bars without a great stock list.

MrW (532) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2016
Aroma is very hoppy, citrus. Poured yellow blond with a white head. Taste is hoppy but a clear amount of grain. End is grainy, weak, little bitter.

radassace (3) - - JUN 19, 2016 does not count
Not the most exciting IPA iv ever had. Described as wickedly hoppy, which made me buy it and tbh its really not. Its got some orange peel, grassy floral hopp tastes going on but to me its just a bit watery and week. Ok.

Godfather50 (180) - SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2016
Worthy of the style when so many fall short. Hoppy on the nose. Good bitter sweet balance. Citrus, zesty kick with ABV back up and bitterness to linger. Really good bottled IPA.

BeerNinjaUK (239) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Pint in Fiddler’s Arms, Edinburgh. Pale yellow with white head, glossy like meringue mix. Aroma very crisp with buckets of hops - lemon, pine and bubble gum. Dry and well carbonated. Lingering oily mouthfeel. Overall refreshing and tangy. Also, served here super fresh! Fantastic.

Desverger (7990) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
Cask@Bow Bar, Edinburgh - (aliased to this) golden pour with white head. Aroma and taste is medium sweet fruity and toasty malty, some light caramel sweetness, some herbal twiggy type hop backing, bitter finish, great condition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
