Our full flavoured, strong India Pale Ale. Now hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer has a pale straw-amber body, and pours with a full creamy head. Its complex flavours include mandarin orange, schnapps, pineapple, and juicy tropical fruits. It is warmingly alcoholic with a dry finish.

Gravity pours at The Gun IPA fest. Pours a clear deep gold colour. Toffee, apricot aroma. Light to medium body. Mild carbonation. A bit stocky. It's caramel, veg funk, a bit of booze, some marmalade and an eventual bitter citrus. Bit sweet for me. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (2166) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
A slighty orange brown beer with a weak and blond head. The nose is very enjoyable and tropical fruity, mangos, kiwis, papaiyas, and some citrusfruits, thus a tropical fruit desk on the glass. Taste is tropical fruity, quite lot of fructose, mangos, peaches and sourness of citrusfruits. The bitterness is quite high, but together with a quite strong sweetness, the taste is not totally dry, that’s great. Not a hopbomb. Medium+ bodied, enough of refreshning carbonation. Very enjoyable, tropical fruitsallad with the balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy amber orange colour with a white thick head. Aroma of sweet mango, grass and some floral notes. Flavour of mandarin orange, grassy floral bitterness, lime juice, resin, yeast and sweet pineapple. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Alcohol warms only a little. Finishes bitter, juicy and citrusy. Nice and fruity.

bytemesis (4762) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Botttle - thanks Ben! Pours cloudy amber orange with a small white head that dissipates quite quickly with decent lacing. Aroma is citrusy, pine, spruce, spicy something. Flavor is the same, rye spiciness, citrus, mango, pine resin. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough beer, but a little rough around the edges, feeling a little harsh going down.

On cask at the Derby Beer Festival
Buxton has always done well in the past so I headed to try another of their hoppy lineup. This one is not quite as good as Sheep Ranch but still makes a nice higher gravity IPA in the spirit of the American interpretation.

Aroma / Appearance - The flat body has a bronze tint the color of polished pennies freshly minted and unrolled at home. Almonds, sweet lemonade, citrus, and a foundation of malts glue together a coherent message of fun.

Flavor / Palate - The caramelly base is lifted by a burst of citrus hops. Figs transition into the resiny bitter finish. Without being cloying it manages to sink its teeth into every nook and cranny of the palate. The final impression it leaves is like a salad made of pine cones and oak chips left to marinate in lemon zest. Overall another top notch release from the guys in the Peaks.
