For a start I drink IPA all the time at my local and this smells like an IPA which is a good sign. Hoppy and citrus, apricot and peach. There is something else but I can't quite put my finger on it , banana sweet I think. Nice nose, it's not strong but pleasant enough. 

Taste

Very nice as well. Quite refreshing. I think this would make a great chaser to a pint of IPA. Again with the citrus notes. Also a little bit woody and drying but it's subtle. A nice bit of tang to it.

Finish

The finish is medium with pear drop sweets and orange. 

Comments

Really liked this.  I have a Grant's  Ale cask finish which I always have on the go and really like. 

Carrots may improve your vision, but whisky will double it.

Tatsächlich habe ich nach mehrmaligem Probieren des des IPA nur noch beim Öffnen der Flasche einen Hauch von Bier in der Nase. Ansonsten fallen mir im taste die Süße von Honig und einen angenehme Öligkeit zusätzlich auf.

Hopfen und Süße machen Lust auf mehr.

Taste

Die Bitterkeit des Hopfens und die vorhandene Süße harmonieren sehr gut. Nach kurzer Zeit dominiert der Hopfen.

Gefällt mir.


Finish

Mittellang.  Sehr angenehm bleibt der Hopfen auf der Zunge.

Comments

Ich finde das Experiment sehr gelungen. Mich überrascht durchaus das der Hopfen, anders als beim Bier sanfter daherkommt und langeauf der Zunge bleibt. Hintergründig spielt immer die Süße mit. Erinnert mich entfernt an Grapefruit.

Nose

frisch, etwas Zitrone, tatsächlich Bier, Pralinen mit Kirschwasser 

Taste

angenehm ölig, frisch, Südfrüchte, Hauch von Bier

Finish

mild aber leider etwas kurz, auch hier kommt leicht das Bier durch

Comments

Vielleicht bilde ich mit das mit dem Bier nur ein, dann hat zumindest das Marketing funktioniert  :-)

Angenehm zu trinkender Whisky. Werde mir direkt eine Reserve-Flasche besorgen.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Young, green malt, citrus (orange with lemon zest), apples, floral hops, and toasted oak.

Taste

Light mixed cereal grains, toasted oak, light mixed fruits (apples/pears/oranges), and bitter-sweet hops and cocoa. 

Finish

Unsweetened cappuccino, oak tannins, and a light bran oil.  

Comments

With a few minutes (about 10), vanilla and sweeter fruit notes come out on the nose and palate. It definitely has a youthful character on the nose and palate, but it isn't under-mature. Not bad, but not great.

This is not very good it has a weird off note like cereals that have gone past their best and the palate is drying but as it says on the bottle it is an IPA Experiment so something different I suppose.

There is a side to his that for some reason reminds me of Famous Grouse.

Drinkable but not my thing and I do not like the nose.
