COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle & keg Best Scottish IPA 2016
IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Bottle from Aldi. Slightly hazy, good white head, some lacework. Bursting with citrus hop aromas and flavours, remarkably well balanced, nice malty notes on the long finish. The high abv is well hidden. Would I buy again? Certainly! :)

330ml bottle. Hazy orange with a thin dissipating white head. Aroma of grapefruit, resin, malt. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, resin, caramel, malts, bitter finish, quite herbally. Medium body, average carbonation. Not bad.

Holmen1 (6567) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2017
Jeg går planken på True North Stavanger på deres 1-årsdag, nov-17: lett uklar dyp gylden med fint skum som varer. Saftig aroma og smak med overmodne tropiske frukter, kvae, granskudd, rabarbra og en hel urtehage i en solid maltkropp. Fin og fruktig bitterhet i finishen.

rodsquad (353) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. Pours hazy coppery-brown gold with a toffee beige fluffy head. It has a stand out nose that’s really sweet and fruity. A light dry herbal grass and a little alcohol. Taste is as light and fruity as the nose with a dry herbal bitterness. It has a sharp tight fizz in a medium body with a slickness smoothing things. Another big IPA that surprises with its light balanced freshness rather than blowing you away with a pine bitterness.

foodgazer (38) - MALAYSIA - NOV 1, 2017
Excellent stuff. Deep, dry and resiny with a crisp and controlled aftertaste. As close to perfect as an IPA gets – it’s like the A Love Supreme of IPAs, really. Other than the fact that A Love Supreme is literally perfect. Well, kind of. Okay, I didn’t mean literally. Can we not get into this now? We’re in public. No, I’m not trying to avoid talking about it. Can we just –
