Strong and pale with plenty of American hops, in the style of a west coast IPA. The Butts refers to the local quarry and the address of the brewery.

Cask at the Arkwright Arms, Duckmanton, 04/10/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is citrus zest, orange, light hops, lemon sherbet. Taste comprises light grapefruit, orange pith, good hop presence for a GB. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish. Decent GB.

On cask at Old Poet’s Corner, Ashover - Hazy gold with slight head. Big fruity aroma, peachy then just a touch grainy, malty on drinking. The hops show through, quite citrusy, sharp, the body remains a touch thin perhaps but still pretty drinkable. Still okay mind you.

Fin (7035) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2009
Cask, handpump at the Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 27-04-09 Pours gold with a thin white head. Like the Mauldons Cuckoo this also has a touch of the floral about the nose along with some honey. The strength is apparent but there it doesn’t detract from the drinking experience. Plenty of honey, sweet malts, quite tangy but backed up with that sweet twist. This is actually quite bitter at times. A nice beer. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2009
Cask @ London Drinker 25: A vibrant yellow hue and as pale as decently allowable. Almost flourescent and uncomfortably close to urine. Lemon squash nose with the slightest hint of bluke cheese. Interesting. Very lemony, chardonnay style beer. Big, mouth-filling flavours of ripe fruit and a tongue drying bitterness give way to airy summer cereals. This is a very interesting little number.
