This Scottish IPA pours a perfect gold with a sudsy head that settles quickly. The aroma is lightly of grassy/citrus hops and pale malt sweetness. The flavor is very dry (not sweet) with a crisp gassy hop bitterness and only a small showing from the malt (very unusual from a Scottish brew) along with a bit a fruitiness from the yeast in the way of peach/pear. Light in body and lower in carbonation and dry finish make this one of the most refreshing IPAs I’ve had in a long time.
