Nov 2012 - 500ml bottle. Sweet cat-urine smell. Taste is grapefruit, bit of melon/pineapple sweetness, good level of bitterness. Quite floral, but this is well hidden and it took me a while to detect it despite how strong this is. (3.9)

Aug 2013 - Keg. Nice cloudy orange colour, decent head. Smells of fruit salad sweets. Tastes of caramalised orange, nice level of sweetness. I agree with my original rating though Id say the flavour is more potent from a fresh bottle. (3.7)

On tap at Man in the Moon in Stockholm (during the IPA festival). Fresh and fruity smell with citrus, British yeast aroma. Similar taste with a note of caramel. Very nice!

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Cloudier than a winters day and a pencil thin head that disappears to leave a soapy swirl, however the aroma is great. Tropical, juicy fruits, grass and citrus fruit. The flavour is an instant hit of the same and some parma violet too. The finish is quite clean and dry and the beer has a lovely oily body. A cracking IPA.

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm
Muddy orange-amber color with creamy head. Very nice aroma, hoppy, very fruity, fresh, some peach and plums. Smooth mouthfeel, very good malt flavor, with moderate sweetness, delicate fruitiness and pleasant mild manure character; quite bitter, but very well balanced, the long final too.
Much more elegant than the other Buxton tasted side to side and cleaner. Excellent.

jookos (1543) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 8/13: Bottle. Wonderful fruity grapey, piney hoppy, as before. None of the green harshness though, slightly better this time. 1/13: 9-4-8-2-12 = 35 Draight. Orange hazy. Super fruity tropical nose. Theres mango, pineapple, lime, oranges, and a lot of each. And a bit of hoppy greens. Body is medium, quite raw and bitter. A bit dry, harsh. A lot of hops, hard to find much else. A bit of bready pale malts, light caramel. Wonderfully hoppy, but a bit unbalanced overall. Feels like the hops were left for too long, giving off a bit of harshness and grassy green flavours.

RexTalionis (2141) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Draught at Blackdoor, Helsinki. Pours cloudy orange in color with no head. Tropical fruits and cats piss in aroma. Flavour has lots if tropical fruits, like peaches, apricots, mango. If there werent that slight grassy bitterness in taste, it would just be like drinking some juice made of tropical fruits. NZ hop feeling here alright.
