COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Regular. Has also been available on cask.

The village of Kippen, nestled at the foot of the Gargunnock and Fintry hills was once home to the largest Grapevine in the world covering an area of 5000 square feet.
This pale ale has an almost vinous flavour and aroma, provided by the choicest New Zealand hops. Seriously fruity, floral and citrus, this beer showcases the best qualities of two stunning NZ hops.
Dominant flavours: Floral, citrus, tropical, fruity, bitter. Grapevine tastes great on its own or with Indian curries, spicy pizzas or chorizo. Serve at 4C for a refreshing tropical citrus hit or at 12C for a fuller bodied, fuller flavoured experience. No additives, no adjuncts; just four top quality, natural ingredients: Malt, Hops, Yeast and Water.

Specifications:
Malts: Maris Otter, Vienna
Hops: Magnum, NZ Cascade, Motueka
IBU: 43
OG: 1.054

Note: Until April 2014, contract brewed at Tryst.

Clear, lively golden ale. In the aroma the fruit is slightly more dominant than the hope. There are flavours of hopes and fruit but its quite a floral beer on the whole. Balanced very nicely and very drinkable.

Can, watching City in the Champions League QF, 18/04/17. Hazel orange amber with a decent egg shell white head. Nose is bitter orange, roasted malts, caramel, toasted grains, melon. Taste follows, orange pith, light minerality, melon, toasted malt, citric tinged straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, slightly astringent hop bitterness in a drying close. Passable APA but not one Id return in the current UK market.
