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 (6466) - 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 (333) - 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.

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 –
