Rune (12944) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 26, 2016
Half-pint, keg at Helgi’s Bar. Hazy apricot coloured body. Dissipating beige head, fair lacing. Smell of oily hops, citrus and dried fruits. The taste profile featured mid-sweet grapefruit, oily hops and peaches. Resionous bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. Good drinking and pretty relaxing after the first day at the St Magnus Conference (Kirkwall 15.04.2016).

jamestulloch (4148) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Keg from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade, heather honey and roasted malts. Flavour of orange pith, lime zest, match box, pine needles and fig roll. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A stunning, hoppy beer. I’d like to see more hop-forward beers like this from Highland.

SaintMatty (7408) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Draught (Pleased To Meet You, Newcastle) - Amber in colour. Peach, syrup, toffee and apricot in the aroma. Fruity and slightly tart taste with peach, toffee, apricot and a hint of mango.

Keg at the Vintage. Pours golden amber, nose is light peach, taste is bitter, sweet fruit.

3.7
Scopey (14946) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Keg at the Lyric. It pours clear orange-amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, resin, peach, mango and apricot. The taste is crisp, bitter orange, sherbet, minerals, light alcohol, straw, peppery, grapefruit and some passion fruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Clean, crisp and very well balanced. Very nice indeed.

3.6
imdownthepub (14743) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Keg at The Small Bar, Bristol. Amber with white head. There is a goodly amount of hops going on with this, drying, lime like, citrus and bitter. Some teeth coating acidity, pleasant herby notes. Very decent.

3.7

hazy mid amber with lacing offwhite head. Pithy orange and earthy English hop aroma. Fairly full bodied, pithy bitterness, goldings spiciness? Medium carbobation.

3.6
Lonick (2114) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Orange. General citrus fruits, some more orange, a touch of bitterness from the hops and then some more Orange. It might sound not quite right but it was lovely.

3.7
JohnRMurdoch (4914) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Keg @ Inn Deep. Hazy orange brown, not much head. Mild resin hop aroma. Bitter sweet candy grapefruit flavour. Citrus aftertaste. A good Scottish take on American IPA.
