A turn of the 20th century Scottish IPA brought back to life and made to be drunk in quantity! Spicy resins, apricots, tangerine zest and a bit of honey graham cracker.

Spicy British malts on the nose and palate seasoned with earthy, citrusy, grassy hops.
The beer pours a chill hazed amber under a 2" snow white finely bubbled foam cap. Lacy.
The palate has a surprising amount going on for a session beer with rich spicy British malts, light citrus, faint caramel, and an earthy balancing hop accent on the finish.
Creamy, smooth medium body and slightly less than medium carbonation with a drying, slightly astringent finish.

22oz bomber with no bottle date apparent. My first Bent Brewstillery beer. Pours a clear pale amber with one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin layer of suds. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Hoppy aroma of citrus, floral notes, and a touch of soap. Do not pick up anything from the malt.

Soapy flavor hurts the taste score a little bit. Has some nice citrus and peppery notes. The malt adds a little bit of sweetness and toasted bread flavor. Quite bitter in the finish despite weighing in with a modest, by todays standards, 44 IBUs.

Light body with a very laid back carbonation. Would of preferred a little more life but cannot complain too much about the texture that works for this beer.

Easy drinking and works as an hoppy pale ale. Has some nice malt qualities that sets it apart from other so called session IPAs.

hmmm.... If I were to have one word to sum up this week brew that would be it! "Hmmm'. Poured into a Pilsner glass a semi-cloudy straw colour, nothing to significant as of for any scent... over all a subdued taste of hops. NOT my cup of meat. I will say this for it (though not enough for me) it did have a delightful mouth feel to it. In the same way that a good IPA would, but the taste and smell and especially the colour was lacking. I seen that people got a peaty taste... I did not notice this. It was as if, flavour wise someone had added charged water to what could of been a fine IPA brew... I have come to realise people call this a sessionable ale... meh... to me no big deal nothing great, yet nothing terrible either, simply a run of the mill IPA.

This tastes like a watered down or lighter version of Surlyfest. It is not a horrible beer, but I probably wont revisit in the future. Overall, I would rate it as a B-.
