Bottle shared with husband. Orange color, white head. Great lacing. Wow, huge on the tropical fruits in the aroma and taste. A definite hop bomb, but it doesn’t totally overpower the malt. I didn’t realize how much I liked super hoppy beers until I tried this beauty.

Quite the hop bomb, and quite tasty at that. What is great is that Buxton did not forget the malts--the sweet malts add a strong backbone to the undeniable tropical fruit blast.

Attractive nose straight from the bottle. Slightly cloudy. Fruit laden taste, not overpowered by alcohol. Delicious.

Buonissima IPA inglese dal colore ambrato chiaro con schiuma pannosa e consistente. Al naso delicata ma intensa con note di resina e fiori. In bocca equilibrio da maestri! giusta amarezza con corpo medio leggero che rende questa birra molto beverina. Il sapore resinoso e floreale con note fruttate riempie il palato laciando un finale persistente di piacere!

Agree with the description, this beer was an eye opener when I tried this earlier in the year. Fairly unassuming citrus nose on this amber beer. Gentle carbonation, high bitterness but well balanced by mango, resin and lemon and a strong malt backbone.

Awesome IPA with very fruity notes from the Nelson Sauvin hops. Well balanced with a long dry finish.

A great bottle conditioned IPA. Pours a great amber/red colour. A really well balanced beer, caramel, sweet malts with great bitterness on the end

Just love this IPA, full of tropical fruits and distinctive flavours of the Nelson Sauvin hops.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 330ml bottle from The Offie, Leicester. The hop aroma on this is just stunning- the NZ stuff in particular just streams out of the glass; lychee, gooseberry, strawberry chews, melon over a faint biscuit backdrop. Some Christian Dior according to the missus. I can’t imagine a better smelling beer. Beautiful, resinous, stewed English taste with a darjeeling and dunked biscuit character more than capable of standing up to the aggressively floral, grapefruity, white grape and peach notes on show. Went beautifully with a slice of Arctic roll. Can there be any higher compliment? Condition: perfect like a freshly hand-pulled cask pint. Stupendous green burbs, botanical notes. Trust me, this one is right up there with The Kernel IPAs, or any IPAs come to think of it. Out of nowhere, a contender for Favourite Beer On Earth.
