A gift from Gavin(the owner/brewer) on my visit to my hometown in Scotland. A partial exchange for some Ontario beers I brought for him.
The appearance is a gorgeous fiery orange with i finger of head and nice looking carbonation. Looks really nice.
The nose is almost all tropical for me. Passion fruit,ruby grapefruit,mango,orange and Jasmine
The taste is bitter up front, fading to a malty mid-palate and a nice hop finish. Mango,kiwi,grapefruit,kumquat,caramelized pineapple and lemon. Alcohol is completely hidden.
Overall this is absolutely fantastic tonnes of fruit flavour and nice hops. Reallly well balanced. Possible the best IPA i've had...top 5 for sure. My only wish was that I could buy this on a regular basis. Oh well, I'll just have to wait until the next time I go back to Kelso.

In the uncapped bottle this just pulsed evergreen and juniper aromas.
In the glass it poured hazy, a flat orangy'brown-ness and lashings of sparkling light and a pretty crystal yellow at the bottom of the glass.
Decent quarter to a half inch rocky head which calms and reduces over the time of the drink.
Bit burpy and fizzy and just somewhat lighter and thinner than would I might expect.
But still, there are bags of potential here. If Punk IPA is canine then this is definitely a wolf.
