Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular. Has been seen on Cask.

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.

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.

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 27, 2013
Keg at Teign Cellars, Newton Abbot. Hazy bright gold. Aroma gives a shedload of tangerine, peach, mango, passionfruit and spruce. Taste is a full-on oily hop assault: great tropical fruit, pithy grapefruit, loads of sweet tangerine, some darker more bitter orangey stuff, pine resin. Wow. The malt body is cake doughy and semi-sweet - but doesn't impeach on the hop character at all. Big citrus-driven bitter hit - lots of grapefruit and pine linger. Crisp hoppiness, nothing sticky or cloying. This is yet another example of a British brewery producing a world class USA-inspired IPAs (and doing a better job that 99.9% of the actual American ones I've tasted in the process!). Great job, Buxton!

Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of citrus, lemongrass, tangerine, light smoke phenols, bread and light grain. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, grain and bread. Meh. Not dry and bitter enough. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Nice aroma but mediocre taste.

Hanoi (609) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Spectacular nose. Bursting with citrus, lemons, orange, lots of pineapple. Taste is cereal, leading to a wall of pineapple then peach, and a lightly resin finish. Taste is underwhelming compared to the nose. Mouthfeel is too full for the style. Everyone does an American IPA, this one has a great nose but that is not enough to stand out.

Lowenbrau (2641) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2013
330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Nice fruity aromas, sweet ones. Pours murky light orange, not really appealing even keeping the sediment in the bottle, with some off-white head, vanishing, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is citrusy, some tropical fruits, peach, mango, with a thick malty body, robust, well balanced. Some bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyable.
