500ml bottle from Tomlinsons. Clear yellow pour with clean white head. Zesty aroma, followed by apricots, hints of peach, citrus tastes. Lively carbonation with a slick finish.

on tap @ St Andrews / St Andrews --- Aroma of hops. Hazy medium-dark amber, ivory head that stays at a thick rim. Taste is caramel malt with an overlay of floral and citrus hops. Not exactly an American IPA, but enjoyable, with enough bittering to satisfy.

Bottle from the wine shop in St Andrews whose name I can’t remember. This looks OK, slightly hazy but it is bottle conditioned, lacks head tho! A bit of citrus fruit on the nose, the taste is somewhat overwhelmed oranges which linger rather unpleasantly on the finish. I had this at room temperature, it could perhaps benefit from being a bit cooler.

Bottle at a tasting. Weirdly characterless in all aspects considering it bears "IPA" in its name. Metallic. Really a fail.

Xmas bottle from Joey. This is a nice malty bitter but no IPA. The hopping is interesting with complex cooked plum and overripe apricot. No aroma an nothing citrus IPA. The maltiness is Scottish rich and full. Dark chocolate in the background. The ABV holds it together nicely. Why go and label it IPA.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Aroma of malt caramel with a sour tone. Clear copper appearance. Smooth malty taste with a slight peachy finish to counteract the bitterness. A sharp medium carbonation with an oily finish. Surprised me as it’s not as hopped-up as most new wave IPAs but subtlety refreshing. A fine drink that I would revisit.

500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop, Kilmahog. Pours deep golden amber, moderate off-white head. Aroma is marmalade, malts. Taste is soft fruity jammy fruits, soft citrus. Pleasant, easy-drinking IPA.
