A late 19th-century Scottish IPA here, which shows the traditional Scottish aversion to using evil English hops. But, rather than having just a sweet malty gloop, they've thumbed their noses at the English and used American and German hops. The splitter bastards.
Unusually, the malt was all Scottish. Which was pretty untypical for this period.
Weak, but rigorously hopped, it could be a modern session IPA. For people who don't understand what the word session means. Or IPA.
