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.

Nocturne (919) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Cask at IMBC ’14. Slightly hazy golden shade. Nice white head. Soft hoppy fruitiness on the nose. More hoppy goodness on the tongue, tempered by buttery malt and a hint of diacetyl about it. Decent on the whole, just a little forgettable at a fest like this.

Draft. Pale straw colour, small tight white head which holds back ant aroma. Flavours of straw, some citrus, a little cereal. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Decent but not outstanding.

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.

jamesie1857 (1496) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
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.

Bullit (4029) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUL 2, 2011
Clear light golden colour, white head. Nose is cooked vegetables, bit of malts. Flavour is light malty, cooked vegetables, fairly bitter. Not good.

Fin (7820) - 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
