Bottle with a "Best Before" date of October 2014. (This review is from February 2014.)
There is very little to recommend this beer.
Poured somewhat flat although on the tongue the carbonation was lively. (This made me check the bottle date. Nope, still good!) There is a haze to the beer... which is mainly due to the wheat on the grain bill, I believe.
There is more malt than hop on the nose. But I'm not usually good at picking up aroma nuances.
The taste is very close to dreck... perhaps it's because of the wheat content and the hop profile. Seems like an amped up version of Stella Artois. I can't believe that the good people of Scotland would call this an IPA. It's barely beyond a an American light ale. It reminds me of Budweiser... and that's not good.
I never finished the bottle. It just wasn't worth my time.

3.32/5 rDev -12.2%
500ml bottle. Light amber colour and moderate head. Smells more like a pale ale, chalky with a hint of raisin and lemon. It has a lemony start, a somewhat herbal phase, and then more lemon. I like it (a refreshing beer for summer) but it does not really seem like an American IPA.
