picked up a single 12 oz bottle, just to try, from the Beer Junction in West Seattle. poured into pint glass.
pours a white, 1/2" head with moderate frothy lacing. a bright golden amber in color with orange tint, mildly hazy.
citrus and orange peels. pine-sol. hop, almost oatmeal aroma.
taste is strong of piney, lemony hops. not much there, damn hoppy.
staunch on-bringing, packs quite a punch for a mere 6.0%.
pale, stale wheat straw aftertaste. dry, hop-tingling finish.
a Scottish ale modeled after an American IPA, carrying a name generating from an English style...hmm. a paradox just as odd as this low alc./vol. (for its style) taste bud slapper.

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
