3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lovely sniff, not ’in your face’ but fragrant. Floral, bit of pine and some mild citrus. Is not so good on the tongue, gets a bit soapy, but is an enjoyable swill. Anyone that rates the taste higher than the aroma is clearly a moron. Or perhaps an imbecile. There’s a scientific difference you idiot.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a fine white head. This one had a strange phenol aroma at start. Thank god it vanished after a while. Otherwise this would have been undrinkable. Malty, citric and fruity ale. Medium body and a soft to average carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness.

Bottle. Bought at Tesco, St. Andrews. What an aroma! Exudes fantastic hoppy whiffs and the aroma is fruity, hoppy and even some spice. A well-composed and very drinkable IPA. Very good,

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Keg at Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh. Pretty boring, honestly. From memory out of a bottle I had a couple years ago it was "OK", but was actually still disappointed by this. Bready, soft, grassy, not ’fruity’ or ’new world’ in any way. Hugely forgettable. Basic and in no way offensive. Tasted like beer.

Flavour is composed of grainy biscuity malts, grassy citrus, leaves, little metalic in the finish. Palate is medium light bodies, grainy, little hop resin on the tongue. Assertive slightly rough grassy bitterness. Good UK IPA.
