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.

NonOperational (60) - - AUG 31, 2013
The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

330ml bottle from lade ales bottle shop. Pours a dark straw colour, hazy with a light off white lasing. Aroma of pine, malt, biscuit Flavour of caramel, citrus, pine, tropical, tart. Perfect carbonation with a nice dry long lasting bitterness. Great punchy clean example of a modern IPA

330ml bottle. Cloudy amber with a good white head. Slightly sour, tropical fruit aroma carried through to the taste. Bitter finish, but not overly so. Very nice

Ungstrup (36427) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2017
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, straw, fruits, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle at Public Corner, Vaasa. Hazy orange color, small white head. Citrusy, hop pellety hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrus, pine, marmalade in the flavour. Quite malty, a bit sweet IPA. Fresh keg probably much better than this bottle although it was in ok condition.

tezarak (121) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Poured from a 33ml bottle @home. Very hazy, opaque orange with some small white sediment flakes. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, tropical and pine bouquet. Quite light bodied. Would prefer less aroma hops and more bittering hops.

kaserov (519) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2017
Voy a suponer que la fecha de caducidad es de unos dos aos y que no est especialmente fresca. Color naranja, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (poca retencin). Carbonatacin media tirando a baja. Textura acuosa. Aroma mnimo a malta, lpulo y algo de pomelo y melocotn (todo muy lejano). Sabor frutal (pomelo, mango), con amargor mnimo y retrogusto frutal. No est mal pero no me aporta mucho.

Shared from bottle at home. Courtesy of Mrk! Hazy golden with white head. Sweet malts, resin, fruity hops, exotic fruits, kumquat, fudge. Over medium sweet and moderate bitter.

Bottle @ home. Maybe its the timing but this beer really hits the spot. Lovely fresh, crisp, hoppy IPA. Perfect carbo and body. Love it.
