Hazy dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma is really fresh and hoppy with dank and tropical, overripe fruit notes. Taste is really hoppy and quite bitter up-front but there is also an underlying fruity sweetness present. Body is quite heavy with crisp carbonation. Long, bitter aftertaste. A really well made dank, piney and grapefruit loaded west coast style IPA.

Pale orange with a crusty ring of white foam. 4
Sweet, sweet tangerine with slight resin, fresh cherry and flowers. 4.25
Dried apricot on white toast then tangelo rind, pink grapefruit, white pine, and slight dank. Hits of a catty-honeydew thing that hints at Citra. 4
Guava finish and salty, tightening linger.
Almost medium, chewy, oily. 4

Rockin' it like it's 2008: big citrussy C-hops that takes that naughty half step towards kronik. Punches above 50 IBUs - talking labels, strange to list the malts but not the hops. Nothing revolutionary, but I want to drink the heck out of it. And among the rare American IPAs from Britain that is what it says. 4.25

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2015, so it's just out of date. ABV is stated as 7.4%. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described as an Extra IPA. I've heard good things about Tempest, so looking forward to this.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich, hazy orange-amber hue with some floating sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity, perfumed hops with hints of tropical fruits, passionfruit, clementine, orange peel, citrus, white grape, mild melon, grass/hay, sweet caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Simply superb.

T: Tastes of insanely fruity hops with a prolonged bitter finish. Notes of tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, melon, mild pine, grass/hay, sweet caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a strident hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with soft carbonation and good body. Hop oils prickle the palate. Quite astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity hops, bitterness, caramel malt and earthy yeast.

O: Fantastic - everything an American IPA should be. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are sublime. Seriously fruity, with a well-judged bitterness underpinned by a caramel malt backbone. Great body. Amazing hop presence combined with good balance make this all too drinkable. An excellent beer; don't pass it up if you come across it.

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.

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.
