Haven't found it in the states, but had the honor to drink this cask conditioned ale at the brewery after the tour.

Fresh, hoppy aroma, great head retention, great color, and wonderful taste. A slight departure from Northwest IPAs, but a wonderful beer in its own right. They did invent IPA, after all.

I'd recommend trying it on tap or cask, and if you find a distributer that has it, e-mail me.

500ml bottle into chalice at the Millenium Hotel in Reading, on the recommendation of the bartender kid. Best before 2/28/15!

Poured without much head. Thick chill haze across the deep copper body. Just skim film and no lacing ... Looks heavier than the ABV

Aroma is of a rich, yet dull floral nature - think old flowers in the vase. Very nutty - walnuts, in particular. Somewhat bready, too, toward the end.

MF is dirty and relatively rich... Drinks like a bigger beer. Some earth left on the palate. Flavors are full of roses, and old citrus. Leafy, herbal quality is high.

Overall, this has tons of flavor for a 4.4% beer... English IPAs are not everyone's "cup of tea", but this one is an authentic must-try from Scotland to help understand them.
