’A mash-up of two of my brews: taking the sweet malty structure of the previous guest ale Red Rye, and hopping it up with the hop structure of my regular IPA; giving us a big malty ale with a bitter hop character of orange and tropical fruits.’

Scopey (14202) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Hippo Beers. It pours deep orange with a medium off-white head. The nose is juicy, stewed orange, tangerine, brown bread, light spice, cereal and marmalade. The taste is crisp, bitter, earthy, spicy, rye bread, grapefruit rind, orange, light soap, toast and cereal with lingering dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good deal of bitterness. Balance works rather well.

4.8% version. Very hazy amber beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is airy and minerally crisp. Light dry malt, some rye spice if you look for it. Light marmalade hops. Crisp dry finish brings a carbonated sting and a trace of ester. Drinkable despite a bit dry.

jamestulloch (3985) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Aroma: Biscuit, pepper and toffee. Just a hint of green hops.

Appearance: Bright copper body with a medium off-white head that holds well. Light carbonation. Nice lacing.

Taste: Ryvita biscuits, sweet caramel, tea and vegetal hops. Peppery finish

Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Average carbonation fizz.

Overall: A lovely Amber Ale. I’d prefer a bolder hop character to it, but the flavours are well defined.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Apearance is clear ruby-red with a one finger off-white head, with good retention. Aroma is sweet hops, citrus, sugary malt, caramel. Flavour is sweet, ccitrussy with a bitter finish, excellent balance. The texture is really smooth with a light carbonation. This brewery seems to be getting better with every new beer they bring out! This is a truly excellent beer. Amazing to look at, great to smell, delicious to taste. I wish I’d bought a few more bottles.
