This big, bold, bitter IPA not only shows off a super hop kick but a depth of orange, apricot and ropical fruit flavours that are both refreshing and complex. Crammed full of four aromatic hop varieties, a fantastically tasty beer.

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 its not as hopped-up as most new wave IPAs but subtlety refreshing. A fine drink that I would revisit.

Iznogud (3626) - CROATIA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml from Luvians Bottle Shop, St. Andrews. Pours dark orange to amber, small off-white head. Malty, caramel, toasted, light to medium hop fruitness. Medium bodied. Bitter finish. Not exactly bad, but lacking in various aspects.

Evilkniamhel (852) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2016
From bottle. Pours clear, light amber. Orange zest, cereals, biscuits and tropical fruit on the nose. Lots of chewy hops on the palate. A nice, fruity IPA.
