3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange brew with big white frothy head. Aroma is very big american styled upfront citrus hoppy notes with a hint of something bready. Fairly big body, but that body mostly comes from the carbonation, with hoppy citrus notes. Pretty darn good.

hazr amber pour, a thumbs worth of head. Pineapple, orange rind and grapefruit in the aroma. Same citrus profile while drinking this, with noticeable pine, and caramel in the back end. A bit metallic up front but Iím used to that with british pale ales. smooth mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy darkish amber with a big off-white head. Retains and laces beautifully. Nose very enjoyable with bittersweet grapefruit-pineapple notes, fruity, juicy, succulent... Same with flavour - the bitter hops are backed nicely by malt sweetness. Medium body, soft to average carbonation, lingering mild bitterness in the finish. Palate quite dry. Among the nicest APA-s Iíve had. Go Buxton!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 330ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark, Notts. Slightly hazed gold amber with white head. Perfectly presented APA with juicy hops to the fore, the body of the beer itself just has a hint of caramellisation, giving it some depth, but remains crisp on the palate. The hops deliver juicy, tropical fruit notes, rich but refreshing. Good stuff.

Bottle. Nose is caramel, pineapple, tropical fruits, juicy and rich. Taste is grapefruit and lime leading to a moderate pine bitterness, slight malt and floral tones in the dry finish. Mouthfeel is good.
Pitch perfect APA.

Starts with kicking caramel in nose, quite sweet. Moderate malts background, caramel, lovely citrusy tropical hop kick, mango, peach, grapefruit, passion fruit. Feels quite complex and well balanced. Sweetish with pleasant bitterness. Drinkable and enjoyable.
