Pilot IPA 33cl


Tasting Note: Extra pale, dry-hopped at 3 stages, and awash with notes of pineapple, pink grapefruit and resinous pine, it’s a seriously juicy number.

Producer: In 2011, founders Matt Johnson and Patrick Jones met while studying for their Masters degrees in Brewing and Distilling at Heriot-Watt, and soon started brewing together in Matt’s garage. They both felt that there was a gap in the market when it came to beer at the time – something that wasn’t the tried and tested traditional real ales, nor the US-style craft clones that were starting to spring up. From studying and home-brewing they quickly purchased a second-hand brewhouse, moved it to an industrial estate in Leith, and Pilot was born.
