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.

Holmen1 (6747) - Stavanger, - 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.

Nearly clear. Bold golden colour. Somewhat mountainous and sticky head. Aroma is papaya, sweat, and pine needles. Taste is grapefruit, resin, and orange peel. Very high level of bitterness.

Troszkę cebuli w zapachu. Poza tym naprawdę pięknie - zwłaszcza w smaku. Słodycz, goryczka, lekki kwasik. Wszystko działa.

orbit (373) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2017
Genuinely good IPA, it's got all the ingredients and stuff to mark a good beer. Plenty of aroma and very good looks. It tastes much to the resinny hops side of things, low on citrus but nicely balanced and floral. Better than most brewdog offerings from Scotland.

Boxereddy (489) - BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2017
Giet wazig koperachtig bruin goud met een toffee beige zachte kop. Aroma: heel zoet, fruitigmet licht droog kruidengras en een beetje alcohol. Smaak is zo licht en fruitig als de neus met een droge, kruidige bitterheid. Medium body met een gladheid die dingen verzacht, weinig koolzuur. Niet voor niks zilver in 2017 bij de Scottish Beer Awards!

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! :)

3.5
LazyPyro (1923) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2017
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.

3.7
kraddel (9428) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2017
Tap at beerlovers bar. Craftnight 3 : Tempest . Pours clear, darker side of blonde. Small white head. Smell is bit grqssy, UK style hops. Taste is fresh, floral, mild malty. Nice one indeed.

Holmen2 (4391) - NORWAY - NOV 17, 2017
From tap at True Northern Bar with OGJ, KH and JFE 17.11.17. Almost clear golden. Fine white head and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, washing-up liquid, lemon and curacao orange peel.

rodsquad (404) - 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.
