RayPoor24 Jul 2013 This how it's described: "The larger than life Highland IPA, an IPA with a massive American influence. Powerful Amarillo bitterness exploding with late citrus flavours from Centennial hops and grapefruit from Perle hops." The reality is rather different. Dominated by caramel/buttertscotch which could be smelled from feet away this beer was characterised by an almost complete absence of hops. Citrus? Grapefruit? Wishful thinking.

McGargleAcceptable15 Jun 2011 Pours a copper colour, sweet on the nose. Predominantly sweet (treacle toffee) in the mouth with limited hopping. Cloying finish. Not an IPA, could have been Wild Cat.

McGargleGood29 Jul 2009 Seasonal ale brewed to 5.0% ABV. Light bodied and amber with lasting tight white head. Enjoyable with dry finish but could have done with bolder hopping. Didn't drink it's strength.
