Its Hebridean brewers describe this as being “a modern take on the classic Indian Pale Ale”, going on to say that its “citrusy in character and as light as a summer’s days on our island.”

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/10/2015

Appearance

(sample best before end Dec/16) Clear, golden amber with thin but retentive ivory white head and light lacing.

Aroma

Dried fruit, citrus zest, caramel, biscuity malt and faint herbal dried grassiness.

Taste

Bitter grapefruit, lemon zesty and piney hops with dry herbal complexity and underlying maltiness.

Aftertaste

Long finish fades with bitter grapefruit, lemon zesty and pine and dried grassy hops.

Overall

This Hebridean IPA is hop led but not overly so with citrusy, piney and grassy hop flavours. It is hoppy but is far from being a hop monster.
