Served from the tap in a shaker pint glass at Duke of Perth.


Bachelor Party-Palooza 2014 (Part 1) believes that when in a Scottish-style pub, do as the Scots do and drink up some Belhaven, namely the Twisted Thistle IPA. This stuff pours a clear brass-amber topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises pine sap, grass, light flowers, caramel, toasted toffee, and mild biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the pine leaning toward a resinous needle character. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA, though the resin is a touch much. Still, the rich malt backbone helps to balance this out a bit. This did work nicely with my chicken club, though...
