Nice IPA. Pours well, color is spot on and the aroma is pleasing. Mouthfeel is right in the middle - not too thin and not too thick. Well balanced with strong hints of grapefruit and pine and a good malt taste. Got better as it warmed up to the proper temp from being over-chilled. Not overly hoppy, so I wouldn't call it "hardcore", but very drinkable.

Earthy aroma with some lemon and pine. Large head when poured. Darker golden amber color. Slightly hazy. Sweet caramel and malty bread flavor up front. Too sweet. Finishes with a mild to moderate hop bitterness. Too sweet (almost syrupy) and not bitter enough for an IPA, much less a "hardcore" one.

Great IPA. Pours a murky amber with a nice buttery head. Smells and tastes of grapefruit and slightly toffee. Finishes with a mild hops bitterness. Creamy viscous mouthfeel. Strong abv. The lads from Scotland certainly nailed this one. profile - March 7, 2014

Extra bitter. Slightly reminiscent of Scotch ale, which I don't enjoy.

Foamy/ Lacey head that lingers. Amber gold hue. Subdued nose. Great balance without the "in your face" hop thing. Like Avery's Maharaja. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Good stuff.

150 delicious IBUs! Very very hoppy and pretty citrusy, but surprisingly drinkable still.

Really enjoyed this. High alcohol but with Carmel/toffee aftertaste.

Tasty. Lots of pine and toffee. Hardcore alcohol with hoppy backbone. There label says a lot of accurate descriptions... "Hop monster, pine, fresh, resinous, insane bitterness, punishing, epic, dry hopped warrior"... Not for everybody but definitely worth a try by beer lovers (hop/ipa lovers atleast)
